Here in the UK we had some really warm weather in July, but lately it’s been a bit mixed; we’ve had some sun but also had a lot of cloudy, rainy days. And today I went out into my garden quite early, sniffed the air, and said to myself, ‘I can smell Autumn’, as there was quite a chilly feel to the morning.
But I did wear this hat out and about during the hot July weather. It’s not a charity shop hat, but one bought from Peacocks over four years ago for the huge sum of £3.99, and still going strong. I love it as it has a big floppy brim that suits my face.
Mind you, perhaps I should show you a hat I will be wearing soon. I’m going to the Faroe Islands on a cruise and have been looking at the long-range weather forecasts. I’m sure you all know that the Faroes are above the Shetland and Orkney Islands (where I shall also be going) and below Iceland. And the weather! Apparently you can get all four seasons in one day. Temperatures on the day we visit may be anything from 9-13C (that’s 48-55F) and rain is expected so I’m taking a stylish and waterproof rain hat! I’ll feature it next month.
In the meantime, I’m off into the garden today as the sun is shining.
That’s all for now
