Lazing on (another) Sunny Afternoon

This time last year the weather had changed.  There was a huge storm after which there were showery days, cloudy days, some sunny days, but the temperatures were lower.  There were days when we needed to use electricity to heat water because there was not enough sun to run the solar system.  It got cold at night, we were using some heating in the evenings, and had put a quilt on the bed.

This year although there are signs of autumn, the weather is more settled, has remained largely sunny and warm.  There have been a few clouds, a few drops of rain, but nothing of note.  We have not used any heating.  We are still having dinner on the roof terrace, the doors and windows are open until late at night and there is no need for a quilt.  It looks like we have at least another week of fine and warm weather, set in the next couple of days to be approaching 30C.  It will not last, but for now we are going to make the most of it.

Today we ended up at Café Carpouza drinking home made lemonade and chatting with a friend.  We really like Café Carpouza, it is a great place to relax, especially when the sun is shining.

  1. I envy you in your retirement when things get stressful at work!

    • Work stress is not one of the things I miss. Of course work would be a lot less stressful if clinicians were supported to do what they were trained to do, rather than having to deal with organisational politics.

  2. No work stress here… just a pair of girls; a one year old and a four year old. Would anyone like to swap???

  3. The weather is glorious isn’t it? At one point the temperature reached 33 degrees here today..unbelievable for this time of year. I am certainly making the most of it while it lasts.
