Before I moved to London, my father told me the Dad Joke to end all Dad Jokes: “You’re moving to London, eh? Did you know that summer there last year fell on a Wednesday afternoon?” he chuckled, merrily.
I dismissed him, of course, and in the 9 summers since my arrival I have genuinely had a jolly good time in the mild and pleasant English Summers.
Apart from this year, my dad’s prophetic Dad Joke came true….we have virtually only had a couple of days of warm weather and yesterday I actually wore BOOTS and a COAT to work.
It’s kinda cold, a bit rainy and it feels more like October than July- and I blame you dad! Laughing at my meteorological predicament!
Don’t be fooled by the shiny sun-like icon on Friday- all week, any glimmer of sunshine has rapidly given way to shower and gusts of wind. I am not best pleased.
I do advise you continue to carry your brolly around, and do keep a light jumper in your bag because the weather has been shifting rapidly.
I am not happy about this, you guys, I want to continue to post loads of fun stuff to do with crop tops and bathing suits, but the damn British weather keeps thwarting my plans. That said, I have heard on the news that next week we will be back to normal summer shenanigans, but I just don’t know who to trust any more, you know…
