'summer' loving

At the start of every summer, Londoners go crazy booking in events to celebrate the fact the temperature might push over into double figures.

Despite one disappointing summer after another, somehow you still see that festival / outdoor gig / rooftop bar / sporting fixture / open air theatre listing and think, 'great! let's book it!'.

And so if you're anything like me, you may well find yourself on a rooftop in Hoxton, wrapped in blankets, wearing a winter coat and a hat, watching a very charming film, whilst dodging the occasional rainstorm.

Despite it turning out to be quite the opposite of a summer event, it still reminded me again why love London.

Roll on actual summer and the extensive list of outdoor events I've managed to line up.

maybe you'll get a summer like the one we had here. In which case all the stores will sell out of floor fans, cocktail glasses and sun umbrellas. And within days you'll have tan lines on your feet from working to work in a pair of sandals.
