October heatwave – and a late BBQ

Posted: October 1, 2011 in Uncategorized


Posting this as an aide-mémoire as much as anything (my memory being so poor these days) as I can’t remember an October day so warm – and certainly not one when your first thought is to fire up the barbeque for lunch! We did, and had nicely charred sausage sandwiches 🙂

In spite of, or maybe because of, the disappointing weather in July/August, we’ve still got sunflowers blooming and hanging baskets full of colour. And walking home after an evening pint in the Free Trade, although dusk was settling in it was still almost as hot as Nice had been 4 weeks previously. Various reports said 23, 24, even 26C in Newcastle this afternoon, and pushing 30C in London and Kent!

Enjoy it while it lasts – I’m sure I’ll be posting about frost, fog and falling leaves before long…
