    well, I survived the transformation process from a hip & happening 30 something to a 40 something despite Brighton chucking its best drizzle/mist/low cloud at us for the weekend. Drive just past London on the way home and out pops the sun. Today is overcast, muggy and quiet.

    Spot on about Brighton, Monsieur Fromage, I was there as well.As for turning 40, I viewed it (8 years ago) as better than the alternative!

    Coming up worryingly fast, Coast! I played a squash league match yesterday evening against a junior member and realised I was more than 3 times older than my opponent. And no, my years of experience didn't help. In any way. At all.

    Still solidly grey skies in Harefield. Might nip out if I can get a lunchbreak and inspect the local sloe crop.

    Has the sun broken through where you are? I'm wondering if it will make it as 'far' north as Reigate. If so I might have to abandon the office and go to my 3rd alternative working location on the top of Reigate Hill - have dongle will travel.

    Just hung some washing out, my word the sun still packs some heat, even in late September. Must be into the 20s here.

    The people in the west moaning is making me laugh. They now know how us on the east coast feel when their hot easterly turns to grey cack here.

    Slightly irritated by the 7-day forecast for the last few days.

     

    Has told me it will be 0% cloud cover, and each day has been like today, 100% cloud cover until early evening and occasionally drizzly.

    To be fair to the much maligned GFS, it did have the cloud cover about right from the middle of last week onwards. I just didn't want to believe we would have this lovely fat high parked on our doorstep with unseasonably warm temps, but no sunshine.

     

    It's really beaming here now so fingers crossed the rest of you will see it soon.

    Autumn? Sunshine says it's still summer: Britain basks in 23c as trees shows signs of next season

    [*]Today's Autumn Equinox marked by fantastic display of gold, red and brown 

    [*]Forecasters say unseasonably warm weather to continue for beginning of the week 

    [*]But will turn more changeable and chilly towards the weeken

    It may have been the official beginning of autumn yesterday, but summer was refusing to go quietly. Much of Britain basked in glorious sunshine over the weekend, despite trees and plants showing signs of the next season. Thousands took to parks, rivers and woodland to enjoy the first of the stunning autumnal colours while the sun was still shining.

    Yesterday marked the autumnal equinox, nature’s first day of autumn, when the sun passes directly above the equator and  day and night become nearly equal in length. But it felt more like summer across most of the country with blue skies and highs of 23C in some areas of the south east. The sunshine was perfect for brave skinny-dippers who stripped off at dawn yesterday in a world record attempt. They failed to break it, but 180 people took part, jumping into the North Sea off Druridge Bay, Northumberland. And the good weather is not quite over yet. 
     
    The Met Office said temperatures will be unseasonably warm today. Even parts of Scotland can expect the mercury to rise as high as 23C, while parts of England could  feel even warmer.  A Met Office spokesman said temperatures are currently about six degrees higher than average for September. He added: ‘That [warmth] will last for the next couple of days  but will begin to become more changeable by the end of the week.’  Aberdeenshire should expect temperatures to rise to as much as 23C, while parts of England could feel even warmer.

    I'm working from my windowless office today, so not got a clue if the sun has broken through here yet (although I am leaving work in 40 mins so should find out soon!) 

     

    However, if the sun has broken through both south and north, fingers cross it has for me in the middle too Posted Image

    Grim and grey from the word go this morning. And unlike yesterday, no sign of the sun breaking through late afternoon.

     

    So what happened to the "30C" temps this week?

    Blimey, the Seven Dwarves have undergone some changes and seem to have lost a member as well! I don't like the sound of Eggy or Oily in particular.

     

    Did you hear about the MP who parked in Speaker Bercow's parking space at Westminster?

     

    Bercow to MP: "I'm not happy..."

     

    MP to Bercow: "Well which one are you then?"

    Sing if you're glad to be grey

    Sing if you're happy that way

     

    I'm NOT singing!

     

    As it's 21.5c back in Reigate I am assuming that the sun is out there....  can anyone confirm?
