What they say about the English is true

We have really got a thing about the weather. Take me, for example. When I got home from work this evening, I went to look at the weather forecast. I've been doing this twice a day for six months. This is what the Met Office said for Sunday:
For a moment, I genuinely did not take this in. I sort of thought the forecast for Sunday was part of the page border or something. Then I looked again. Then I went to look at the other weather forecast, the one on guardian.co.uk (always good to get a second opinion and this one's always better) and this is what that one said:
Then I hopped round the sitting-room (still got a sore foot) laughing like a maniac.
Now I'm just off to plan a wonderful walk for Stonecot and me. It will be short, because of my sore foot but we will be looking for spring flowers, fleecy little lambs, warm breezes and blue sky.
You can all look forward to photographs of the glories of the English countryside in spring.
Don't even THINK about mentioning how changeable the weather is this time of year.
