Mental Note to Self

The Scottish Sun, while an elusive creature, once it gets going can be just as fearsome as its Southern cousin…

The problem is, on days like today when it’s been china blue sky and fluffy white clouds all day, it seems criminal not to go and sit in it, given all the months of drear and dreich that we’re going to have to endure over winter. And summer, too, for that matter.

Which is why I now have reverse short marks on my legs, and a nose that can be seen from space.

    Does the sun up there cause the males of the species to divest themselves of their upper garments and display their “manlyness”, moobs and all, to the world as it does down here? Also, does slightly inclement weather cause the infrastructure (such that it is up there) to go into total meltdown and cease to work or are they better prepared for such extremes of weather as “rain”, “frost” and the occasional “blizzard with snow drifting to 10 or even 15 millimeters in places”?

    By the way, I’m only a couple of chapters in but the book’s not bad at all thus far 🙂

    Not just the males, Dom…

    In fact a glow-in-the-dark ‘tan’ with vivid white strap marks is pretty much de rigeur here…

    Not sure about inclement weather. People seem to cope with rain, they seem more fazed by actual sunshine

    Oh dear. For a moment there I thought you talking about tabloids.
    Anyway, sunshine. We had some of that recently.

    yeah, we did, didn’t we? It’s gone now…

    Sounds a little like the German sun, when it comes out.
