AS WE head into the completely uncharted territory of week four (or is it five? Who even knows what day it is anymore at this stage?), we are beginning to think the unthinkable.

Is it actually possible to get bored of good weather? Even more unthinkable, we are starting to wonder if it is possible to get bored with talking about the weather. There isn't much for us to say about the weather now is there? Like happy families, good weather is all good in the same way.

But bad weather, like unhappy families, is all bad in different ways. So normally we can compare the weather in different parts of the country, and marvel at how it was different just 10 minutes down the road, and how it was like summer this morning and it's like winter now.
