Britain has something to look forward to at last – the nights start drawing in soon, meaning winter is finally on its way.
The longest day is on June 21, fewer than four weeks away, and after that we can look forward to cold, dark evenings with crap weather.
Thankfully, after going through the year from hell, we have all been basking in glorious long, summer days recently.
We have a glow about us that comes from lovely sunshine and time spent enjoying ourselves outdoors.
So, the reality of the nights drawing in and winter approaching is a welcome relief.
Sun-parched Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “We’ve all got a bit bored of the heatwave, quite frankly.
“After COVID and lockdown misery, it was nice at first to have months of relentless sunshine.
“But it’s getting a bit boring now. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a drop of rain? Our gardens are crying out for it.”
Steve Walshe added: “I can’t wait for the nights to draw in. I love it being cold and dark – it’s the real onset of another winter to look forward to.”
