August 27, 2008

Back, back, back

My blog’s been withering on the vine for a few weeks now. I’ve been a bit busy at work acquiring scary new responsibilities – our email service, our training team and some other stuff – and I’ve also been on holiday in Italy, which looked rather different to the way Coventry looks right now:-

Cattolica, Aug 08

It was hot and sunny with blue skies, and just about 30 degrees every day, and while I’d find 30 uncomfortable in the UK, with our slightly rubbish, clammy feeling 65% humidity, 30 degrees combined with the delicious dryness of just 30% humidity, plus a breeze blowing in from the sea, is just about perfect. I think that what temperature counts as too hot for you is defined by humidity as much if not more than by the actual temperature.

And even though I’ve never thought I was bothered by the lack of sunshine in the UK, I found myself, slightly to my surprise, loving the climate in Italy and wanting to be somewhere like that more of the time. I wonder where a good place to retire to would be if you wanted as many sunny days per year as possible, but dry, not humid, 30 degrees rather than 40, and no droughts or flash floods. The north coast of Italy could be a good bet, I think. Ancona maybe?

Anyway, I’m back in the grey murk for now, and I’ve been thinking lots about email and other things, so I’m hoping to get back into a more regular blogging groove. But then I’ve hoped that before. We’ll see.
