You didn’t realise we had a little piece of the Med right here in Blighty did you? Yep, just down the road from me there’s a street where it’s always sunny and everyone’s happy and friendly all the time. Ok, I’m clearly fibbing – that place could never exist. But the one above does – only it’s in Malta ( a few weeks back). But if you look at what today’s weather was like (the view from my window), you’ll understand why I wanted to post something cheery. Mind you – there is a piece of the Mediterranean in the UK – look here at Portmerion in South Wales (official site here ) – built by a wealthy bod in the last century (and used for the TV series The Prisoner ). Mad as toast but funky too… Anyway, after this sweet sunny sojourn, we'll be back in Cambridge tomorrow.
