Blame it on the sunshine...


The weather the last weeks has been terrible… Almost everyday has consisted of clear blue skies and warm sunshine. The mercury has hit 27 degrees in the shade and at the back of Villa Sjovalla come two o’clock the court yard is a sizzling 45 – 50 degrees. We laze around, drink some cold drinks, and when the heat gets too much we pop off to the beach and have a swim. Work goes on as normal and in fact this week I have been doing some rewiring in the attic just so the Brining boys will have somewhere to sleep once they get here…

Not once have I heard on the radio or via the “googlebox” that we should stay indoors. So it comes as no surprise to me that now when the nice weather is coming over to the Greatest Britain that the government are going out with warnings… Is there nothing left for the population to think about themselves? It rains and a warning goes out - risk for severe flooding, it is windy - stay indoors because the trees are coming down, sun shines – cover up the children and do not venture out…

How many of these silly warnings are there from the UK government in a year? No wonder the public workers have the highest absence rate than that of the private sector, costing the tax payer £4 billion a year… If someone picked up the phone and called in telling their employer that it is to warm to work they would get the sack…and rightfully so…

I am getting seriously worried for the reminder of my friends still living in The Greatest Britain, perhaps I need to organise a rescue mission before things go so down the tube that they stop thinking by themselves…

Hey… if the sun shines today…enjoy it, drive your 4x4 with the full A/C on…bring the degrees up a notch on the climate change, then with some luck, we might save it all by growing our own bananas soon, so there will be no need for imports…
