I have just returned from 12 days in Scotland/England. It was bloody freezing! We landed in snow at Glasgow and the last 4 days down south there were flurries of snow all the time. Which leads me to my question...... WTF is going on with all these knob-heads wearing shorts? I live in Spain and it was 16 or 17 degrees today, but I'm still in 'long trousers' ffs. So are the tourists. But in Glasgow (Braehell to be precise, say no more) every day there were numpties wearing shorts...... in horizontal sleet! WHY? Is this a fashion statement, a nails statement or has the recession bitten so deeply they have had to resort to their old 'summer' clothes? Sent from my steam driven 'puter with gloved fingers, under a 13.5 tog duvet.
