Thursday 3 May 2018
I know May has barely started, but so far it has been the most dreadful start of May I have experienced in years. The only May I remember to be worse than this one was in May 1992, when it had snowed. In any case, it has been cold and miserable since the beginning of the month, I am still wearing my winter coat and I have a cold. It is supposed to get warmer, but I will believe it when I see it. May is meant to be this time when Spring is at its best, getting warmer and vaguely summery. Not this year, not so far. Don't get me wrong: I am an autumn person. But I do like a bit of seasonal change from time to time and I like May to look and feel like May. Rant over. This was meant to be cathartic.
