CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

With the lovely weather we’ve had lately, my worry is that summer has peaked early!

It’s happened before, much to my bitter disappointment. Easter 2012 was glorious, but the summer was a washout.

Winter 2012 lasted deep into April as Easter temperatures peaked at 3C. Our weather ‘blocked’ several times, meaning the cold conditions lasted months.

The same happened in the summer and, hey presto, heatwave! But after the hot summer of 2006 came the floods of 2007.

Surely history will not repeat itself? No, say German scientists. An El Nino weather effect should mean a hotter-than-average summer. But I’m keeping the wellies and waterproof handy...
