Ah, summer…! How I've missed your cloudless skies, your warm dry sunshine, your beach-going days…
lucky rainy country. Except where it's not. That enormous mass of green on the eastern coast? It's very wet. Also, the summer sun is still actually present, above the mass of clouds, which is making everything muggy, and fertile breeding ground for bloodsuckers.
I would like to apologise to all and sundry: on the last known day of sunshine, I foolishly tempted the gods and washed my car. The thought "Well, it hasn't rained in ages, so it should be okay…" even crossed my mind. That very evening, the heavens opened and dumped filthy water all over my sparkly car.
