DH remarked today that if it was November, we'd be saying it wasn't too bad- but it's June FFS!

dunno.... but I am fucked off with it

yesterday, heatwaves for later in the week were predicted but they appear to be changing their mind again angry

Don't think it's just us though, the rest of the uk seem to be suffering as well.
Have given up trying to plant out my veg as my beans I put out last week have had nearly all their leaves blown off angry.

I saw somewhere down South on the news and it looked lovely. I think the north of England is gloomy as well though!

It is chucking it down & freezing here. I have had enough.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Mon 01-Jun-15 18:19:05

I'm in the north of England, it is gloomy here too. And chilly.

We had the summer in April. And the most depressing thing is it's the longest day in 3 weeks time.

Windy Wilson says it'll change Wednesday, with high pressure/better weather due Thursday. In the meantime, keep the winter woolies on!

I am pretty sure that May used to be better than this last one (and the few before too), even taking account of sun goggles.

SantanaLopez Mon 01-Jun-15 18:25:35

It was always nice in May during exam season.

DevaDiva Mon 01-Jun-15 18:26:29

I have been assured it gets better on Wednesday and it will be 30 degrees which would do nicely thank you.

DevaDiva Mon 01-Jun-15 18:27:09

Ah sorry speaking for Manchester/North West just seen you're in Scotland smile

Elliptic5 Mon 01-Jun-15 18:27:20

I'm going to light my wood burner in a minute.

readyforno2 Mon 01-Jun-15 18:28:06

Haha hirples. I came on to quote Windy Wilson too grin

Orangeanddemons Mon 01-Jun-15 18:29:19

Heating on here. Went to pick dd up in winter coat and gloves. It was eight degrees. We're in Sheffield. Winds breaking all my plants

SantanaLopez Mon 01-Jun-15 18:30:11

Cripes, sympathies to Sheffield.

Pissing down here. I had wanted to take the kids out a run before bed time too. Boh.

I didn't realise this was Scotsnet either

No matter, us Northeners are all this together smile

Far south west of Cornwall here. We have a proper full on winter-style gale blowing. Dog refusing to go outside. Got lights on and about to fire up the central heating.

Rinkydinkypink Mon 01-Jun-15 18:33:34

Its freezing! 8oc here all day (north). Heating still on and winter clothes still needed. Very fed up hmm

SantanaLopez Mon 01-Jun-15 18:33:47

All the way down to Cornwall grin

Well, if we're all suffering together I feel better!

The highlight for me was a loose paving stone schooshing water up my trouser leg as I trudged home whilst wrestling with my umbrella.

Did anyone else get the thunder sad

HirplesWithHaggis Mon 01-Jun-15 22:23:24

Had thunder, lightning and hailstones in the small hours, not during daylight hours. Much calmer now.

May did used to be a reliably good month: our wedding anniversary is 16 May for exactly that reason and 17 years ago was a fabulous day grin

The thing that gets me is how cold it still is: unless the sun is out, the air is still cold hmm.

We've still got our winter duvet on the bed! shock

Got soaked this evening walking to a Parent Council meeting - had to sit through it with cold wet legs sad
