Summer of 2013

It's finally summer in London. Thought the day would never come and it's the end of June already.
This year weather has been extra lousy in the UK -blizzards and freeze in March,prolonged cold spells and wind up to May. I think its the longest time I've actually held on to my trench coat this year. The longest day of the year has passed now which means dwindling sunlight starts now  but at least it's started to warm up - at least due t the observations from the last few weeks :

Early afternoon at 2pm and its 26 ' C
Stuffy nose, shot-gun sneezing and breathing through a dry, open mouth because of hay fever.
Waking up in the middle of the night around 2 -3am...(also contributed by point above)
Brought out the fan for the first time and actually turning it on
Actually feeling too hot for being in the sun.
Took out sandals because feet are swelling up.
Loss of appetite due to the heat and wanting to take a cold shower.
Dreading the journey in the tube because of heat and stuffiness.

Oh well, better to be warm than to be cold.....cos that's what I'm made of -Malaysian material.

Been some time, hope you are doing well, Fiona! Yes, we seem to be getting into the culture of moaning about the weathertoo :) anyway, as i write these, the sweaters and yellow leaves on the streets tell me summer, no matter how it was ( pretty good in NL i must say) is almost done... We miss you!
