This will probably be the last bit of sunshine you will see Carole,so stop moaning woman !! Next month is September so Winter will set in and we will have all these snow and frost pics to look forward too.I wonder if Eskimo's wake up in the morning and moan if the sun is shining and they see their igloo's melting ? I suppose they do.And where do Eskimo's go on their holidays I wonder ? Probably to an ice factory in Siberia or somewhere.And how do they lock up their igloo's when they are away for a fortnight ? Glad I am not an eskimo.When I come back from the pub the igloo's would look all the same to me and I would end up snuggling up beside eskimo Nell at nos' 22 on the bear skin rug.I like bringing home my steak pie supper too and a supper of raw fish does not sound very apetising to me either.So you see,I reckon we are not too bad off at all with the weather here.These poor eskimo's have a far rougher time than we do !!
