I escaped today up to my local for a few pints. The sun was out the sky was blue and if you kept out of the shade I could feel the sun through my duffel coat and five layers. Got to the top of my road - 200 metres and had to stop to get my breath back ( an average good day ) . Turned into the High Road.
The high road runs on a virtual north south axis and it is a bit of a hill. The wind was blowing in from the North East and it hits you in be face and takes your breath away. So I got the bus. Really enjoyed a couple of pints and walked back about half a mile home.
It was so good to get out and also got a phone call from an old friend of mine in the pub.
Had a really nice day AND the weather will improve in two weeks back to average April temperatures, I will be out in the garden with the lovely wife. Her mother had a saying "it won't always be dark at six" . Life will get better - good luck to all of you. - Adrian
