May moan

Last year, I posted about having to wear boots in June. Well, this year, it's even worse:

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.
Never thought I'd ever see the day
When I would wear
A vest in May.

Suddenly, weather's not the way it used to  be;
There's a raincloud hanging over me
And I am wearing a
A vest in May.

( I'm sure the Beatles will forgive me.)

    1. It's the putting back of clouts that upsets me, Adrian.

  3. Just a few days ago, when I felt so sick & tired of my padded winter coat but knew I still needed it, I happened to come across one of my own blog posts from May 2012 and found that it had been way too cold for my liking back then, too.
    Let's hope this year won't be a repeat of "summer" 2012.

  4. I'm sure the Beatles will forgive you. We are having up and down weather here in southeastern Alberta. It's been cold, and it's been hot, and it's warm, and windy (scary windy) and the forecasts that say rain are all wrong.
    I always say "whether there's weather, or whether there's not..."

  5. 'Changeable' certainly describes the weather this spring.

  6. Hey! We had freezing temps over the weekend but the warming trend has begun (70s today) and I'm sure it's coming your way.

  7. Love it, Frances - your song, not the weather! I had to get my thick dog-walking jacket out again and it should be hanging up gathering dust by now! x

  8. Love it! It's right up there with that other seminal Beatles track: Hey, you've got to hide the Chardonnay!

    1. Why hide the Chardonnay? Get it out, I say!

    2. Oh - I get it now. I blame anno domini! Very witty!

  9. Perfect sentiments - the sun brightened me up in every way this morning and now it's back to cold and rain. Weird everywhere.

  10. Trying to be positive - I would much rather wear my winter wardrobe, especially as I get older and more wrinkles appear. My feet are much cosier in socks and comfortable shoes. Now, the sun is bound to come out!

  11. Why she had to wear her vest she wouldn’t say

    I said it’s too cold to divest your vest this May


    Sorry Frances, couldn't resist it.

    (And I loved 'Hey, You've Got to Hide the Chardonnay')

  12. It's now June and I'm still wearing heavy clothes. In fact yesterday in the garden on a day with hardly a cloud to be seen I was wearing heavy trousers and a heavy bodywarmer because the North Easterly force 5 wind was so bitterly cold. Summer? Hmmm.
