On the weekend it felt like spring had finally arrived. Today, with the temperatures in the early 20s, it felt like summer had come early.
I took a longish lunch-time break from my freelance editing work to go for a quickish scoot around Richmond Park. It was perfect weather for cycling. The sun was out, the sky was blue and there was a gentle breeze.
For the first time this year I didn't have to bother with layers. I didn't even wear a cycling jacket; I just wore a t-shirt.
That turned out to be a lot more than a lot of other people were wearing in the park — I saw far too many overweight men walking about with their man boobs and their beer guts fully exposed. If a woman did that they'd be arrested! Cover it up, please!
