Australian weather forecast

The weather forecaster last night said that we would have a hot day today with temperatures of 28 or 29 Celsius. OK, that's pretty cool as far as some folks are concerned, but for us here in England it's HOT. But the sting was in the tail: heavy showers would sweep across in the late afternoon or early evening.

I can only think the forecaster had been standing on his head or something. The rain started at breakfast, and I got soaked taking the dog out. But it cleared during the morning and this afternoon has been glorious.

That is actually quite surprising. Today, the late May bank holiday, is the day when Hove Lions hold their carnival. It is also the day when the next club along the coast (Adur East) used to hold their Vintage Transport Fayre. I say used to because they were so fed up with being rained off that they have moved the date this year.

Brighton Lions took the racing pigs to Hove and while I was manning the stall this morning we did a reasonable trade. Here is a clip of a couple of the pigs.


And don't ask me what they were doing!

I can see perfectly well what they were doing.
