Dear weather gods, What you are offering this week, compared to last week, is quite unimpressive for the end of June. I would like to put in a request for some dry weather please while I am based here in Scotland, not just so that I can get on with outdoor tasks without getting soaked, but so that I can enjoy the scenery. I think we have had enough rain thank you very much – everything is looking green and well watered, so there are no worries on that score, and what they need now is some dry brightness.
Dear Scottish school children, I feel so sorry that the first day of your summer holidays, yesterday, was so wet and miserable.
Dear Motorways, Thank you for being trouble free when I was driving north at the start of the week.
Dear Barcelona, I’m sorry that another week has passed without a post about you, but I have a lot on at the moment – maybe next week I’ll have more time.
Dear self, Why can you never remember all the things you were going to write lots of letters about?
