Long Term Outlook

Get your shorts and sunscreen out – the next two weeks are almost guaranteed to be hot and dry and sunny, at least in our little corner of Scotland. For by the time you read this, we will be on a train (several trains…) to the South of France, where I hope they’re braced for a fortnight of unaccustomed drizzle. Oh, and the imminent unveiling of the whitest pair of legs in Christendom. It’s not been a summer so far for working on my tan.

The first week will be spent in the bosom of my sister’s family (the non-blogging one), the second will be rather a more intimate break: just me, the other half and approximately 3,000 chickens. There will, undoubtedly, be blogging to be done, but not as frequently as usual, so watch this space.

    Bon voyage — if that’s not oxymoronic for a train trip. Safe travel, have fun.

    3000 chickens? Eat one for me. Enjoy (the holiday as well as the chicken of course).

    This has not been well organised. If you’d headed off two weeks ago it would have coincided nicely with a week off and away for me and then a hectic week at work. As it is you’re picking a time when I’m all caught up and looking forward to my regular afternoon read. To top it all the weather gods are throwing an almighty tantrum at the moment with thunder, lighting and hail. One assumes you’ve managed to elude them 🙂

    Are we related? I have exactly the same effect on the weather. My father in law has sworn never to holiday with me again – I’m devastated 😉

  5. Have a relaxing time. Speaking as someone else with a tripe white pair of legs, sun tans are not all they are cracked up to be.

    not there yet … got as far as Paris but missed our connection thanks to Eurostar – nice night in a hotel but an oh-god-hundred hour start tomorrow

    If the quantity of my envy equals the quality of your enjoyment you’re in for a great time !! (I don’t think the UK weather gods would dare mess with the Mediterranean ones.) xx

    Ah, it’s good to hear that Eurostar are as poor in Paris as in Brussels (where the staff give the impression they’re all doing it for the first time) A pity Stuttgart isn’t on the way, we could do with a little rain.

    You must fall into the same classification as I do — “glow in the dark Caucasian” –Takes about 15 minutes per side for me to be “medium rare.”

    I do normally tan fairly easily, but for that there has to be some sun! So far the French weather gods have seen our puny UK one’s off, but there’s still time

  11. […] with gritted teeth) there was a fairly epic storm brewing over the flatlands of northern France. Ragged Thread had, rather optimistically as it turned out, suggested that the French Weather Gods would see off […]

    Oh dear. Oh shit. Going to keep it firmly buttoned in future. I should have known not to mess with your system. xx
