Good Friday coming, better get the lawn mower out of hibernation and tackle the back garden.

And then clean the bbq... how much lighter gel do you guys use to burn off all of last year's crud?

I'm on the Norfolk coast. It's a pea souper at the moment. The fog is so thick!

Been in jeans and short sleeve shirt all day. Felt it a bit in the wind and it's cold now. When the sun was out though it was beautiful.

Here's to it warming up.

Marginally better here, sunny to start though and plenty were caught out when it got chilly.

Lovely today at Great Yarmouth. Beaming sunshine with only a hint of cold in the shade.

My daughter and I are one of the few in shorts. Loads of people are wrapped up like it's winter.

IN.

Late to this, was on holiday for 2 weeks. Nice to come back from 38 degrees with 85% humidity to very pleasant weather!

And possibly the nicest! hehe

I had a place in Quinta Verde (between Almancil and Quinta do Lago) and Sagres was my beer of choice.

A lovely part of the world and I am thinking about getting a villa out there again.

Middle of next week we're due rain in the postcode I reside in, after a week of low - mid 20's temps.

Will this potentially bring storms?

Yes - there's some potential for Monday that I'm monitoring. Maybe later than that as well (like snow - best forecast short term).

woohoo

That's good enough for me, we don't get many storms in Derby (and the last good one I recall being told about, I somehow managed to sleep through).
