Summer faires that aren't so fair

Walking down to Portobello Rd this past Saturday for a haircut, I passed by a school that was holding a Summer Faire. There was a jumpy castle, bbq, games for the kids, etc. Nobody really seemed to be having that great a time, however, as it was POURING down rain.

Summer in England doesn't necessarily mean summer weather. There was however, a bit of sun on Sunday between 1pm and 2:15pm, which has thus far counted as "summer".

I have, however, discovered at least redeeming quality about summers here - Pimms with lemonade (which is fizzy here, like Sprite but more lemon-y). It's best served in pitchers with orange, lemon, mint, strawberries and cucumber slices. Alcoholic AND refeshing. Yum.

In other news, our next trip is booked for early July. This time, it's beach-flavored.
