Getting around on public transport

After not owning a car for a number of months I really haven’t found it hard to get around, g shopping and meet friends, that is up until last week.  I wanted to go to London to meet up with some friends and found it quite easy to book a train ticket, which was a return.

The Weather is getting worse

Well, after a hosepipe ban here over the last few weeks it’s strange to see that we are indeed getting a load of rain and it seems as though it doesn’t ever want to stop.  I was talking with a few friends the other day and it seemed to us that the weather in England is changing seasons – well, it seems like the summer is moving to an earlier start in the year.  As with last year, it looks as though we’ve had 4 or 5 weeks with blistering hot days and nights (well, for here up north anyway) and then it decides to rain significantly, being overcast when it isn’t, and ensuring that an overwhelming feeling of ‘glum’ is put on people.
