The English

Good Morning!

Today it really is a good morning! Two days ago we had a miserable day, very cold, drizzling rain, a really grey day. Your immediate reaction is “No, I’m not READY for winter yet”. Ready or not, when it comes it’ll come!

I remember being on holiday once in the Maldive islands and the thought of having permanently good weather never-ending sunshine was very depressing! The accusation  always laid at an English person’s door is that we always talk about the weather. Of course we do, We HAVE weather! Here in the north of Italy, there are just two seasons, unremitting heat, unremitting cold and  damp!
