Oh my, just as I thought my new sandals would never see the light of day and I'd resigned myself to spending the next few months with an umbrella as my constant companion, our tease of a sun has really treated us to wonderful weather over the past few days, hasn't she? Suncream, on. Freckles, out. Ice lollies, licked. And even if it doesn't last, and let's face it, we live in the UK so it's unlikely to last, we'll always have those glorious May days where we dithered about what to do, unused to leaving the house without wellies, waterproofs and a wish for a storm-free hour, and wondered whether today would be the day for the first BBQ of the year.
