It’s far cooler this week. I know that not everywhere in the UK has been roasting but London has. On Wednesday (32C) we went to the Bleeding Heart, sat in the courtyard and pretended that we were in the south of France. I had snails to start and then we shared the Cote de Boeuf.
I am rather relieved that it isn’t as hot this week – it might even rain today! My friend N (who is from Malaysia) sometimes talks about “candle princesses” (people who melt in the heat) and I may be one. Heat is super when you’re in the Maldives / Seychelles / you get the idea (although much about 25C and it gets a bit much) but it isn’t a whole lot of fun when you have to get the bus into central London.
