The sun has shown up…

…and is a little late to the party!

We are in the middle of a heatwave here in Ireland. Eventually! Yesterday we had temperatures reaching 30c and while this does not sound high for those in Europe or western American states, it’s a little too warm here.
We haven’t got the best record for good summers. Technically our summer months last from May to August but so far we have experienced a mixture of sleet, rain, wind, and storms. So when you get a few days of clear skies and sun, you got to take advantage of it.
When I was in Spain, the weather was good and bad; one-day rain and wind, the next day sun, so it was fairly unpredictable. While I type temperatures in parts of the country are over 30 at the very least. It reminds me of last year walking into Sarria and looking at an electric signpost and saw 34c. It was pretty uncomfortable for someone who gets what is called a ‘farmer’s tan’…red and white!
It is forecasted to be the same for the next few days. Hope it stays this way anyway. It definitely changes the mood of some people.
