Is it just too much to ask for us to have an actual summer? And I don’t mean a couple of days here and there of sunshine. I mean weeks or months on end of summery weather and not torrential downpours. I am seriously considering escaping this depressing climate. Particularly depressing as it is the end to the summer holidays which have rendered …
