Much more mixed last week, with many days of sun and temperatures in the high 20s, a couple of overcast days – and even the first bit of decent rain in MONTHS. Plus a couple of thunderstorms thrown in for good measure.

Clothing suggestions: This year’s first guests largely wore shorts and T-shirts, and one sported a big hat. I should have worn my work trousers with knee pads instead of jeans while I was laying the bathroom floor, but that’s easy to write in hindsight.
