It was announced today that this has been the warmest and driest spring (April and May) since 1896. The weather forecast at the beginning of the week looked very promising and those readers who have followed this blog from the beginning will know that, as a naturist, I have always spend a great deal of time in the sun in one country or another. Since I have been less mobile I have hardly had any sunbathing at all and had every intention of sitting outside in my electric wheelchair for an hour or two today. Unfortunately, and almost predictably, the weather forecasters got it wrong and we never saw the sun so, I sat all day in my study, in my baggy shorts, in anticipation of the sun to breaking through but to no avail.
I’m off to Lord’s tomorrow for the first day of the Sri Lanka Test Match against England and it promises to be very warm. Sadly I should have to remain fully clothed, including my tie, so I will not be getting too much of a suntan there but it should be a good day.
