The weather forecast promised wall to wall sunshine this weekend even the newpapers were full of it. Well I'm in my slippers and cardi and theres no chance of a BBQ! Is it just a ploy to get us to stock up on burgers and salad perhaps?

It's in Sussex and has been all day. Blue skies, fluffy white clouds, picnic lunch.

Summer is here! Just had to come in from the back garden because the setting sun was so warm. Now watching The Royal with a lovely cooling vodka and coke!

thebird Sun 24-Jul-11 19:28:11

Now very sad as also in the south and after a promising start it's just been grey today and yesterday!

Where in sussex Goblinchild? My friend and I have found a caravan in Rye for £173 for 4 nights. Starting Aug 1st. We are hoping to book tomorrow as looks a lovely area. Camber sands looks fantastic so we are hoping for a nice beach day. grin

Here in Hampshire its been sunny and cloudy but nice and warm. Few threatening rain clouds but they've held off and gone away.

Lovely here in Wales, we have spent the day on the beach and swimming in the sea.

Well it must be our summer here in the West of Scotland as for a change its been gorgeous all day, SUNNY, 22oC, lovely!!

WheresTheCat Sun 24-Jul-11 19:31:54

It's been gorgeous here all day, but the sea mist is in now and it's all gone a bit grey sad
But it's warm and therefore = summer!

it's been in Glasgow for once smile

Goblinchild Sun 24-Jul-11 19:33:08

Rye is a lovely town. Especially if you want historical and interesting.

thebird Sun 24-Jul-11 19:35:04

How frustrating! Usually we get the best of it in the south coast but I guess the suns shining anywhere but here by the sound of things!

superjobee Sun 24-Jul-11 19:36:07

dundee is roasting angry im pregnant and roasting hot as it is feck off sun!!

Opc0904 Sun 24-Jul-11 19:36:58

Can I ask where you found your caravan in Rye youarekidding? Would love to do the same this summer, Camber Sands sounds great, hope the sun shines for you!

LadyOfTheManor Sun 24-Jul-11 19:40:44

It's dire in Wales, has been for weeks.

QueenofJacksDreams Sun 24-Jul-11 19:45:06

I'm in the east midlands and it is boiling even now angry ITS TOO BLEDDY HOT.

youarekidding Sun 24-Jul-11 19:57:29

thebird where are you? I'm south coast and thought today was OK ish. wink

opc parkholidaysuk is where we found ours. It is an extremely cheapy 4 night deal though. They have lots of sites very close by and some 1-2 week deals too. I googled 'cheap caravan holidays' blush grin

Thanks goblinchild Rye does look lovely. The caravan site has a children adventure park, small indoor pool and some evening entertainment but low key. We fancy a nice day in Rye and I think there's a castle nearby and a lovely church? We thought a bus ride in, sightseeing with the promise of cake in a cafe would lure the DC's in. grin The site is on/in the nature reserve at Rye harbour so lots of walking and picnics to be had - weather permitting grin

LadyoftheManor: what part of Wales? See post above about spending the day on the beach and swimming in the sea, definitely not dire here!

peppapighastakenovermylife Sun 24-Jul-11 20:16:51

Where on earth are you Jemima? Sure it's not New South Wales? grin

South west wales here and dire - we have been wearing jumpers all day!

handsomeharry Sun 24-Jul-11 20:18:45

Lovely on the east coast of Scotland. Very sunny and warm.

beautiful here too smile not looking bad at all this week. Temps not quite so high as they were looking a few days ago and some eastern parts may see a bit of damp gloom wednesday. But, overall a distinct improvement from the sogginess we've had recently.

JemimaMuddledUp Sun 24-Jul-11 20:48:26

Cardigan Bay! We were on the beach at Ynyslas all day and the sea was lovely and warm. The car thermometer said it was 24.
