Moaning Monday

Elie shoreline

I know, you know, we all know, Scotland is not renowned for having good weather. Stunning landscapes and Game of Thrones-esque castles, yes, but the sun, no. Even though I’m well aware of that, this summer’s weather has been particularly appalling. We usually get a couple of weeks of sunshine – not bikini sunshine I might add – but enough to get your flip flops out and leave the house without a jacket. This year, I’ve yet to pack away my winter coat.

Today, it’s particularly depressing. It’s like November outside, with driving wind and rain and it’s grey. Completely grey. The sun has clearly forgotten about us and I’m having a moan about it. So to cheer myself up I spent my lunch hour buying my holiday supplies. From tanning lotion to miniature toiletries,  from bikinis to flip flops, Madeira, I am ready for you. And I’m in a better mood than I was an 6o minutes ago. Now if the rain was to stop it would be the icing on the cake.

Happy (moaning Monday) everybody, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

    I feel you! Last summer in Iceland the sun seriously never came. I am happy this summer is better but I could use a bit warmer weather. Have fun on your vacation!

    I know how you feel! Here in Halifax, we had some really nice weather a couple of weeks ago, but it’s been pretty dreary ever since and not nearly as hot as I like my summer. It sounds like summer will be returning this weekend for us, so I’m looking forward to that. It sounds like you’ve had it even worse! Hoping for some sunshine for both of us!!

    I hope the sun will come back soon! The weather has been grey and dull (and cold) these past few days over here too, and it feels as though we’ve fast-fowarded to autumn already. Bleh. :)
