Summertime??????

Driving home from work last night, you could almost believe summer was here.  Everyone seemed to be in vest tops except me,(I still had a body warmer on, I feel the cold),lots of people outside the pub laughing and drinking in the sunshine (not just smoking) and the smell of bar-b-q's.

Today, while pottering in the garden, I noticed that the warm weather has brought the ladybirds out from their hibernation.  I have never seen so many ladybirds at once, not since the plague we had in 1976.
We are off to Shoebury tonight for a meal with friends of Al's.  Just what the doctor ordered after a busy week at work.

Yes, there are a lot of ladybirds, aren't there. When I was teaching at Urchfont last week there were over 50 - all different varieties, black and red - and that was just in my room!

I'm so thankful it's warmer. Actually reached 22deg today!
