Is Summer actually coming?

Yesterday I played Cricket for the LST team again. The last time I played was when I dislocated my finger and it was at the same ground in Herne Hill against the same team. I’m happy to report that I sustained no injuries other than a few small bruises this time. I also managed to score three runs, which is an event for me, I’m not much of a cricketer.

I think it’s fair to say we were rubbish, all out for 54. It was a nice enough looking evening but there was a chilled breeze blowing through and the temperature was probably around 12 degrees which made for a cold time out in the field, whether batting or bowling. At least I enjoyed myself.

Today Keryn and I went out and got lunch, as we normally do when Keryn isn’t going to the Gym. We headed down to Cheapside and over near Bow Lane where a Subway store opened about a month ago. I’m a big fan of Subway, especially the Meatball sub. Keryn isn’t so keen so she got lunch at a place opposite Subway, Italian Chicken and Cheese I believe. Afterwards I took us a less direct route back to work, looking for photo opportunities in the fleeting sunlight.

Once again today is cold, a bit warmer than yesterday evening but there is still a cold breeze blowing through. At least today when out of the wind and in the sun there is some heat to be had. There is talk in the papers of a heatwave this summer. The doubters ask how a heatwave can be predicted when the forecasters can’t even get the next days weather right. It’s easy to see why the English are known for complaining about the weather.
