No, not an Irish version of a suspect colonial wartime sitcom in India.
But a nod to the balmy and clammy weather we’ve been having here in Ireland this week… trust me to get the wind and the rains up in Royal Portrush at the weekend although nothing could dampen our enthusiasm at seeing Shane Lowry win the Open.
Things have been hotting up too across the water in the UK with highs recorded of hot air… from the new resident of 10 Downing Street.
Right across Europe the thermometers have been at boiling point.
Your intrepid blogger has been doing a bit of digging to see which of the European cities is the hottest and was surprised to discover that it is Valletta, courtesy of www.currentresults.com with an on average temperature of 22.,3. Today it’s 33.
Athens, which I had down as the hottest is only second on average according to that website.
Valletta, of course, is one of the great cities in Europe, nay the world. And when the temperatures soar as they are doing just now the thing to do is get out on the harbour.
And also get yourself out to the neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino.
