From steaming heat to windchill.  Is it possible for bloggers in this part of the world to avoid mentioning the weather?   A friend of mine remembers getting strange looks from the locals in Italy when he greeted them with ‘Lovely day, isn’t it?’  I don’t know the Italian for ‘and your point is…?’ but that was the look he got.  Now even there the climate is behaving unpredictably. Rothesay from Barone hill

I intend going out for a walk whatever is thrown at me.  My resolution to cycle daily has been undermined.  Not only am I a fair weather cyclist but I don’t do ‘up’ of any gradient.  My outings could better be described as bicycle assisted walks.  Fortunately, the couple of miles into the town of Rothesay are flat.  Other destinations require me to become fitter or to invest in a machine with gears that actually work. 

Here’s to some rainbows this weekend.


Wet weekends are of course excellent opportunities for writing…hmm.  Amazing how attractive walking in the rain can seem!

    Tell me about it! Was in London last week, boarded the train home in shorts and a vest top; alighted in Glasgow and instantly turned a delicate shade of blue. Still, walking and cycling in the rain are quite fun if you can have a cup of tea and a bun somewhere dry afterwards.

    And just to keep us guessing, the sun is splitting the sky again today! ‘Splitting the sky’ – interesting cliche!
