Mad dogs and Englishmen

I don't know about the mid-day sun but last night at 8pm it was still in the high 20's. Pub beer gardens were packed out, pink shoulders and faces were bared and remarkably not a sock/sandal combination in sight (could it be that the British middle-aged male has finally got the message?).

Today is forecast to be the hottest day of the year with temperatures in the Midlands hitting the mid 30's with the possibility of a record-breaking 37c (98f). Tonight is the first night of pre-season training at my rugby club. With last night's early evening temperature in mind I am not particularly looking forward to running drills for an hour and a half in the still hot sunshine and no shade. Predictably the camp is split. Those who want to build on last season's promotion (and plug some of the gaps we've got in the squad) want to go all out and train hard. And some of us fancy a bit of a run out to blow away the cobwebs and then a few drinks in the clubhouse afterwards.

The British and Irish Lions took a hammering in New Zealand last year. Maybe this rugby player should take his example from the Lions of the Serengetti. Hakuna Matata

You were probably spared the heat by the storm, hopefully, but then you would have got wet. Lesser of 2 evils.
Drinks in the clubhouse always make things better though.
Still waiting for details of the free bar party last week pub!

No such luck for us. It was still a good 27/28 degrees and sunny while we were running around. We still managed to get wet though. Water coolers and squeezy drinks bottles + rugby players pretty much always ends up in someone getting soaked and a water fight. We're all big kids at heart.

Free bar party was a bit disappointing (technically I was working so I couldn't get too drunk), although watching the 50 year old head of the Law faculty trying to convince one of the marketing girls from the sports centre to swap her skirt for a glass of (free) champagne was quite amusing.

Any pictures of the result? Of the skirt swapping that is... :-)

BTW: temperatures on this side of the Channel are hardly better. Luckily, there were some thunder storms and plenty of rain last night so it has gotten a wee bit cooler today.

Forecasts for the weekend, however: something like a heatwave. Pff..

The sock/sandal combi is also a Garman thing. Unfortunately.

Serge - typical Brit eh? Complaining about the weather. Only a couple of months ago we were moaning and asking when summer and the hot sunshine were going to arrive. Never satisfied eh?

Andrea - I think it's an international phenomenon. The white socks and Merrell look is particularly favoured by American and Japanese tourists in London. Not quite as bad as the lesser spotted British grey sock/brown leather sandal variation but still a faux pas however you look at it.

Sam: so right. Isn't moaning a great passtime? I wouldn't be moaning with a little bit of sun, a cool breeze, 25°C and some light rainfall at night though. Would you happen to know of a place where that kind of climate can be found all year round? If so: let me know. But don't tell too many people. :-)
