A Spring in the step…

It's been threatening to spring for a couple of weeks now, but finally, gloriously it's here. And the the sign? The guarantee that it's the real thing? The London equivalent of the first swallow? Today we saw our first sunburnt office worker. Fearsomely lobsterish from brow to chin, he was an example to us all. To get that burnt, in that little time, he must have spent the entire weekend staring solemnly at the sun, swivelling minutely to catch every last degree of its effect, while lathering himself in chip oil. Truly a hero for our times.
