We have just had a miserable bank holiday weekend in England with temperatures not even reaching double figures centigrade in many parts of England. There is a picture on the front of this morning's Independent with a couple walking under an umbrella (not the sun variety) on a wind swept Brighton beach.
Mind you it has not only been wet in England. Talking earlier to someone who returned from south west France on Friday after a ten day break....it rained for eight of them!
So now is the time to think about a break. A weekend, a few days away. Temperatures on the early May bank holiday 7th May looked like this:
London 14, Edinburgh 10, Cardiff 12. - Further afield Majorca was 20, Faro 19, Nice 18, Gibraltar 19, Malaga 22, Athens 24, Rhodes 25 and Barcelona 21. The UK forecast is for more rain this week so getting spring sunshine must be a priority for many people.
