Tomorrow will be the longest day of the year, so some people might think we were enjoying high summer. No, this is England. Far too many of the summer days have been like this one. And that's even when the weather forecasters promise it will brighten up by the afternoon.
Would you believe this window has the finest view from our house - when it's not raining?
But we have had just a couple of nice evenings in the last couple of weeks - and when they happen it is a delight to get out in the sunshine. Sometimes the humans invite friends and neighbours round to relax on the deck beside the river that runs along the bottom of our garden. Sometimes we just all go down and relax on our own.
Those few days when we can get into the garden or relax by the river like this are instant reminders of how little we miss London.
Sunshine is also a reminder of when we will next be in Walt Disney World (Prrrr). It will be August. That's normally far too hot for us but we have to go then because we are meeting some friends at a (non-Disney) event on the same trip. Only a couple of months to go.
