hottest day in april

19 Apr

london thursday 4.06pm 30.7C sunny (highest temp so far) 2018 virgin lounge

certainly very high temp today. you might well ask why i am indoors in the virgin lounge when i should be out there soaking in the sun. but actually i am glad to be indoors, it is hot out there… and i have noticed much as i like the sun for the vit D, i cannot stay out sunbathing for long. yesterday i tried to do it, but had to give up and go indoors after only less than 5mins. it is just too uncomfortable. i dont know how people can do it, sit out for long baking in the sun.

i think the the best time to do sunbathing is during the early spring, when the temp is about 11C and the sun is actually warming, so that lying in it  is really pleasant. 

my friend john who lives in bournemouth sent me some pics of the beach and it is very nice. it brings back nice memories of that beach with its colourful beach huts, the white sand and blue sky and sea; and makes me joyful.  but i dont envy him because i know it will be too hot for me to enjoy lying there. its enough to see it.



enjoy the beach. from my friend john’s pic of bournemouth beach yesterday

i went to the meeting of the ex east- west club members and it is lovely to have that excuse to get out and enjoy the sun  as i make my way to central london to the pub we are going to meet. just walking about in the sun is enough for me.

    Great to hear that London is having good Spring weather. I prefer cooler temperatures too. Maybe for me as I grow up in a country with summer all year round, the cold is alluring and nice to me. I read in the papers that the Queen at 92 is still heading the Commonwealth openings and helming it, but this time she hopes for her son Charles to take over. He has been waiting so long and at age 67 years, I hope he gets to do it though it was rumored that he might not be King (?). If and when he gets to be King, he will really be older than most who ascend the throne.

    i for one will be glad when we trade more with the commonwealth nations… and get rid of the tariffs that the EU impose on goods from there. their meeting here in london is quite low key… in fact there used to be lots of flags of the nations participating in any meeting in parliament being hung out in the field outside parliament… but this time, nothing. maybe too many flags to put up round that small field. i googled it, and it seems there are 53nations in the commonwealth.
