The sun is shining in Edinburgh. The birds are singing. There are flowers in bloom in my garden and butterflies floating around. The dog is lying in the sun. I have been in the garden, magazine in hand and sunglasses on, cool drink to quench my thirst.
It may not be 90 degrees and I may not have a pool in the garden in which I can lay on a lilo and float but the sunshine has cheered me up no end.
