How's everyone's summer been? If you're in England like me then, on the whole, it's been pants. Summer's over now (really...) and it's been announced that this August is officially the worst (weather-wise) on record with the lowest number of hours of sunshine and the fifth wettest on record. I did, however, manage to get some fantastic sunburn in the only weekend of sunshine, a month ago. Also, we're in a recession (a fancy word business's use to put prices up) so everything costs an arm and a leg. Oh trains take over 4 hours to get to London from Manchester now because of engineering work, I'm getting fed up of that. Right, there's plenty more but i'll stop moaning now. On the up-side, Stoke got their first win in the Premiership. woop!
