queen of the may

Okay. The weekend was gorgeous and sunny. Yesterday was wet and cold. Today it's sunny, but there are clouds on the horizon, and my house doesn't seem to have realised that it's warm outside now and is still absolutely fucking freezing. This is the middle of May. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WEATHER?!

Gah. Usually we have a stretch of nice weather in May even when the rest of the summer is crap. But it looks like this year, we'll be denied even that brief pleasure! Unless the past weekend counts. It was particularly gorgeous on Sunday - I went to a garden party in my editor's house on Sunday afternoon that was like something out of The Great Gatsby. It took place in a fabulous house on Howth Head with a garden that basically ended on a cliff and the best view I've ever seen in Dublin - you could practically see across to Wales. But after that afternoon spent sipping champagne garnished with freshly frozen raspberries, it's back to earth with a damp rainy bump this week. Bah!

It's crazy! What happened to good oldfashioned exam weather?

I know! The students' loss should be our gain!

I felt very much that way yesterday when it was all grey and actually raining. But the second half of the week is looking so much nicer, that I've kept some kind of hope.

It's the same here. I'm really missing the warm May weather that encourages you to get out all your summer clothes only to hurriedly search for the woolies again once June turns up. Instead I'm huddled into a fleece and wishing I could be wearing my thickest jumper ever.

It's just freakish. Also, because the front of our house is preternaturally sunny, I frequently end up leaving the house in far too few clothes (as in, minus a warming layer, not that I go out pantsless or anything).

Mmmmm...champagne and frozen raspberries. Sounds delish! And sorry about the bad weather. Although, being from Texas--where the seige of summer begins now and extends through mid-October (and by summer I mean 95F+ temps and humidity of 85%+ with nary a cloud in sight for that whole time)--I secretly envy your gray, rainy days.
