Well after the long, dark, cold winter we all experienced here in the UK, the weather has really peeked up in spectacular fashion. Endless blue skies and glorious warmth for most of the month. Even the May Day Bank Holiday was blessed with magnificent weather.
I’m drawn to comparing this summer with the UK best ever, in 1976. I was only four years old at the time, but remember it so well. Hot, hot, hot for months on end. It’s too early to compare maybe, as we have a lot of the summer to go, but this weather takes me back 42 years. Yes, I am that old before anyone asks.
What’s my advice? Go out and enjoy this great weather while you can. The benefits of getting plenty of Vitamin D into the system are well known. Don’t overdo it as the sun is very strong at this time of year. Plenty of Factor 30 or higher, cool drinks and light clothing. Pop the sunglasses and a hat on and away you go. It’s not often we get this sort of weather, why not make the most of it?
