What a lovely day

Into October and I'm out walking in shorts and t shirt...
Racing Teatray

It is isn't it? We had some Spanish friends around for lunch and we took them for a walk before lunch down to and along the Thames and it was most pleasant. Now collapsed on sofa after vast lunch including my first ever attempt at blackberry and apple crumble, which worked out well (not exactly haute cuisine after all!)...
TreVoR

It has been lovely up here but too cold for shorts!  I took the TVR out for a good blast around the Lake District. Sadly the Kirkstone Pass was rammed with runners and cyclists.

My heater fan packed in shortly after I set off and I had to stop and put on another layer!

Just guessing, but I reckon it was around 19░ earlier. Off up the pub for the quiz now.

We've been in Scotland today and it was glorious weather there.

Yes indeed, excellent flying weather!

We were at St Mary's Loch for the Newfoundland club fun show. Smug shot of best puppy:

It's been lovely although the wind this morning was quite cutting at times whilst I was watching FB Junior playing Rugby at Cambridge, this afternoon was similar with it getting very cold when the sun went in. I've put the heating on tonight!

I'm aiming to wear my shorts at work until at least the end of November. I've been in shorts and t shirt today because I've been grafting away at the bathroom.

A lovely sunny day at Croome Court today, with a picnic by the lake and we drove home with the sunroof open. Heating not going on for a long time.

Gorgeous!

Must confess to having to google St Mary's Loch. Will have to return to its' webpage too, as it refers to its sister loch as Loch of the Lowes; which is fine, but that's in Perthshire, not far from Dunkeld! We've been to it often to see the ospreys.
Michael

It was near a place called Moffat, its in the borders.

Great shot of the puppy!

I was outside washing the "blue" part of my fleet and polishing the 'TurD  which has come up like new apart from the scratches and chips inflicted upon it by others. Also discovered a parking ding that someone has added to the rear nearside door :-(

I then attacked some of the greenery that's grown a bit wild in the front garden, and finished the outside activities off by mowing the lawn, firsr time for over a month due to the crap weather we've generally been having.  Yes, a glorious day weather-wise and the CH is still set to "off" !

Just coming to the end of three days golfing in Alicante, glorious weather, slightly sunburnt, now sitting in a bar watching the Ryder Cup, one of sport's great events. Doesn't get much better, albeit we're going to lose.

I rode through Moffat on a (motor)bike run some 35 years ago! It won't come as any surprise to learn I remember precisely nothing about it!

Oops. I let it slip.

Our eldest was at Guide camp over in East Sussex and we were a bit early heading over to get her so stopped off in Bexhill and had a nice walk along the front. It was just the right balance of a cool breeze and a warm sun.

Quite the contrast to yesterday, had some really heavy rain.

Back to tshirt weather today, but no need for shorts.

We may have passed each other on the seafront! I was there between 2&3pm, pushing the girls on their bikes. Where was the guide camp?

Out with the dogs yesterday at Box Hill, it was indeed a lovely day, walking up the hill was an effort and I got bloody hot, I could've easily got away with shorts and a T-shirt.

Daisy was struggling a bit too, wheezing away, I felt a bit bad as we didn't have any water on us, when we set off I didn't realise how warm it actually was, fortunately there are plenty of dog bowls at the end of the walk at the visitors centre.

Up at Herstmoncieux. We were there about 5ish so a bit later than you by the looks of it but there were lots of parents with children on bikes still around. Do you live round there?
Martin

It was pretty cold when I left home this morning, 3.5c.  Heating didn't come on.

Result of yesterday's efforts:

This morning: Ice alert warning when car was started at 7:10am !

Shiny.
Nice Guy Eddie

Put the heated seats on for the first time this morning and had the classic drive off and then the glass steams up 1 minute later and you can't see shit.
Frank Bullitt

4C according to the car this morning and I've given the instruction to put the heating on at work, probably the earliest for a number of years, on account of daytime temperatures not reaching 18C regularly and night time under 10C. My utilities bill is going to get a hammering this winter!

A weekend of everything weather wise. It absolutely pissed down all day on Saturday and was so cold and miserable that we lit both the wood burners (in lieu of the central heating going on).

Sunday morning was damn cold - we had ice in some feed troughs and the hi-lo gauge said it had reached -1 overnight. Then once the sun got up it glorious all day.

This morning was 2 degrees when I left home with that misty, wet mist that covers everything in near freezing water.

Autumn has arrived!

I drove through it yesterday and even now the only thing I can remember is it's called Moffat.
The countryside around there was stunning, must explore it more before they build the wall.

Lovely day - slept on the boat so I could wake up to sunshine, harbour views and a flat calm sea then spent the day fishing - one of the best days of the year.
