Change in weather has got me feeling all Christmassy

CLIVE SMITH: Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn about Valentine’s Day

Have your say

Gosh, doesn’t it feel like winter is almost here? The weather has gone from being gloriously warm and bright to cold and autumnal – I feel like I should be out Christmas shopping or something!

Thank goodness last weekend the weather was lovely before the bank holiday Monday rain came.

Imagine how much more awful it would have been if the heavens had opened up over the whole weekend.

Although evenings on the seafront for the Victorious Festival were cold and everyone commented on how you could feel the change in the weather, it was dry – we were thankful for small mercies.

I don’t want to alarm anyone, but it really isn’t long until the festive season. Whoops, sorry, I’ll shut up now.
