Well we don’t yet know who did it, but some kind soul has clearly lassoed our little Rock and dragged us closer to the equator for us to enjoy a REAL SUMMER*
All those really nice pictures of the Island from the 70s of the jam-packed beaches are suddenly relatable. Everybody has had their legs out for a good two weeks, and people are walking round sans cardigan after 9pm.
We can pretty much guarantee someone in every office around the Isle has googled the question; ‘When is it hot enough to legally be sent home from work?’
Evening BBQs and al fresco dining are now just a way of life, the winter duvets have been cast aside, the butter has actually had to be put in the fridge and we’re all constantly sweaty. And we’re fine with it, because there’s really nowhere we’d rather be when the sun’s out.
One thing this weather has given us (apart from freckles and some sick tanlines) is some insanely beautiful pictures from around our glorious Isle. People are getting out and about, and documenting the process. And we’re forever grateful, as it’s a reminder of how lucky we are to live on such a gem of an Island…and there’s nothing we love more than a good showcase of the best place on Earth.
*we will not take any responsibility in the demise of the weather after we publish this article. Jinxing is real, but we’re crossing fingers the sunshine remains until at least September.
