Bank holiday weekends have a reputation for being washouts over here. We get few enough sunny days, but it's almost like you can bet that the weather isn't going to cooperate when you have a long weekend.
This one is no exception, but not only is it grey, it's freezing cold, with a maximum around 9, and the weather forecasters yesterday saying that it had been warmer on Christmas Day!
I told people last week that we were planning to have our bank holiday picnic/barbecue indoors. I have been trying to conjure up the image of blue skies and warmer climes by playing my Compagnie Creole tape that I bought when I was in Paris in the '80s.
