Yikes - this all sounds like I don't love my country! I do!! (I just don't love the weather!) But Britain is a great place to visit - specially if you love historic buildings - we have tons of castles and stately homes. (Just bring a brolly and a jumper... and maybe some thermal underwear...)
My first husband was born in Cockermouth, Cumberland County. When my youngest daughter was ten, her father took her to England and she got to see all the tourist sites of London, then he took her to Cockermouth to show her where he grew up. I would have loved to have the other kids see it also. He said that it rained the whole month they were there. She never noticed.

85 yesterday (technically 87.5), 58 today. Hmm, seems about right. At the moment it's an Aussie kind of day - raining down in buckets! Also have rumbles of thunder - do you guys get thunder Kylie?

You think if it's going to be cooler it could at least be dry so I could do some gardening, but no. By the time the rainy weather ends we're back to mid-80s and humid. Can't catch a break this year...unless you want to talk about my toe...

Ah, that is way up north! I haven't been to Cockermouth - the nearest I got was when I spent a long weekend in the Lake District (which is a little way south but still in Cumbria). Rain for a whole month sounds about right!

That said, after my post earlier saying about the thick clouds - the sun came out at lunchtime and it has been back to blue skies and 25C/77f since then.

Katy, it's an old vent from June. Probably from before you were here? Otherwise you would have see my too-many posts complaining about it. Starts on page 177 of the "Venting" thread (yes, I looked it up for you ) and pretty much weaves in and out for a few days. Reader's Digest version, in case you don't want to read it all, is I ran into a piece of furniture, hurt my toe - could be broken, could be sprained. Still bothers me a little but I can walk and all so I'm still .

Yep, June is before my time. I know it seems like I've been here tormenting everyone for years, but it's actually only been about 2 weeks would you believe??

I am going to go and read your toe saga now (as you were so sweet as to send me a link!)

18C in winter? So unfair!

A gorgeous 81F. Floated around the pool on my floaty thing reading my Kindle in it's waterproof case, and the rugrats were only there briefly, then they left. These were the polite rugrats, not the obnoxious imported ones who get keys from friends and who don't live here.

I had to go to Winthrop this morning. Now the place where I go is just a short block from the ocean. It was high tide and the waves, driven by were wind, were whipping against the sea wall. I always go to the store to get a hot coffee when I am there and to have a cigarette outside. I know it is always cooler there than here. So I wore a sweater. I should have worn a coat. It was so windy and cold. More like Fall than Summer. I had one fast cigarette. Couldn't wait to get back inside.

BTW, we have only had a couple of sprinkles. I could say "Ha, Ha" but I won't. It will come back to bite me.
