I don't know about you but I've given up on Britain ever seeing another hot summer. We seem to be faced with deluge after deluge. No wonder I see so many glum faces around the town.
So if this is global warming, can I have my share please? I'd give anything for a little bit of it right now, as I'm sick of looking out of my window and seeing the trees bending in the howling wind and the rain lashing my garden.
I checked the temperature on my shed this morning and it read 10 degrees! This is almost the end of June, and we are still in the grip of winter. Yes, we had a few weeks of sun back in March and May, but that's it; winter came back with a vengence and shows no sign of leaving just yet.
They say it's all down to the jet stream being fixed over Britain at 20,000 feet above our heads, and that's drawing in Arctic air to give us this foul weather. Meanwhile, other parts of the world are baking in record heat. Once again I have to ask, where's our share? Can we have a little bit please, just for a week or two? Is that too much to ask?
Why they're queing up over the channel in France to come to this god forsaken, freezing, rain lashed land of ours I'll never know. After all, this is the sixth or seventh year in succession now that we've suffered such prolonged bad weather, and so extreme with it.
Anyone ready to emigrate to sunnier climes yet? I know of two families who are doing just that, and the weather has a major influence on their decisions to go to Australia. Can't say I blame them.
I mean, it's bad enough being skint in Britain, with all the money ripped off us by bankers and financiers, but like Greece, if you're going to be skint, it's better to be skint in the sunshine.
