Gush, gush, gush, gush.
It must get wearing listening to us Brits going on and on and on about the fact that for the first time in two years the sun appears to be shining.
But we’re most over-excited about it. We cannot believe our good fortune. For just a little while we are not umbrella-beholden, wellie welding curmudgeons. No-one is flooded out. We wake up to see rays of sunshine streaming through the window. The British wildlife is equally exuberant, because everyone loves a blue sky.
And so, while it lasts, we reserve the right to be insufferably smug. It will rain again soon enough.
In this vein, then, I will inform you all that Macaulay and the family pottered round the forest today. And it was just stunning. And without further agush, I shall turn away from words and towards images. For today, truly, each picture speaks one thousand words.
