What happened to global warming. .

 Last week I spent a few days north of Barcelona in Spain with friends.  We had a great time despite the cold front that blew in.  We were expecting bikini and suntan lotion weather...but oh non my little paella....it was, "I'm keeping my socks and thermal undies ON" 
It may be late Spring but it feels more like early winter. . .
Lots of yummy Sangria helped keep us warm and we braved the arctic conditions. (Slight exaggeration on my part but I'm only warm at around 30degrees C).   I did walk barefoot on the beach and I did stick my feet in the sea. Just can't help myself.  Instead of basking like an anemic beached whale hoping to transform into a cooked lobster, I put on my woolie jumpers, jacket and scarf and walked along the rugged coastline and discovered some beautiful little coves...

Am now home, back  in SW France where the weather is just as bad and the wheatbag is warming as I write this.  Off to Paris next weekend...fingers crossed the weather warms up....
To all those goggle eyed, hairy, smelly, scientists that have been banging on about global warming and drought for years...I stick my tongue out at you. 

Was hoping for a warmer Fun and Nonsense this week.... xxx

I think we had better luck with the weather and even managed a little tan. We were only there for a few days and I know the weather turned then. It sounds like you had a great time anyway. Great to see you back with a fun drawing ManonX

The scientists try.... I'm sure they do... in their own little ways.
But Mother Nature is not to be hemmed in with lengthy algebra calculations... she's a fickle ole girl, and I think she enjoys toying with the scientists. :)))))

Dare I ask how Paris was?

Love your girl ~ despite the chill... :))))
