It’s mid-January and I’m actually sitting in my office…. sweating. I’m wearing only a pinstripe Paul Smith pencil skirt and Thomas Pink blouse, tights and a pair of boots (new, Prada, completely unnecessary but absolutely gorgeous). I can’t recall such a warm winter’s day since I moved here over 30 years ago and although it’s nice not to have to wear layer upon layer, it does freak me out. It seems only a few years ago that I was moaning that my warmest wool winter coat wasn’t warm enough. On the weekend I actually saw someone wearing a t-shirt and no jacket.
“Climate change scientists predict that 2007 is likely to be the warmest year on record globally, beating the current record set in 1998.”
The other day a friend of mine was actually bitten by a flying ant.
