We have had about 2 weeks of sunny weather without any rain.
I'm still struggling to believe it myself. I am working outside of London at the moment and I've been able to enjoy small snippets of the afternoon sun while out walking.
Today I went out with the baby in the sling along some of the local footpaths. There is an old apple orchard which has been left to become overgrown and I discovered a heap of blackberries growing up through some of the trees. I've decided to go back and pick a pile tomorrow and a few apples to make a fruit crumble. I have it on good advice that there is an expert crumble maker in this house.
I'll report afterwards...
