The Good Thing About Rainy Days

On this island we are by nature sun lovers* because we live in Britain and we don’t see a lot of it. The tiniest ray of warm peeping out behind a cloud and we’re out in the garden with picnic blankets and pimms trying our best to photosynthesise like the little, overly-polite and personal-space loving pot plants that we are. I had the fortune to spend this weekend at a delightful friend’s wedding in Cheltenham and we had fun grilling the Texan’s about whether they ever got tired of the sun. Apparently people CAN tire of the sunshine. Could you believe that? After weeks of a pretty decent and unexpected bout of sunshine most unprecedented in April, the clouds found us again and the grey came back. Sky water decended and life went back to normal. 

*There are also people out there on this island who don’t enjoy sunshine. These people are possibly vampires. If you are one of these people and believe you are not a vampire, it would be advisable to consult your nearest doctor and book an appointment just to be sure. Especially if you have a fondness for red coloured foods and beverages.
