It's amazing how warm 9 degrees can feel after such a cold snap recently. Whilst today's temperature is only a degree higher than average for this time of year, it felt almost warm this morning.
Make the most of it though because next week looks cold. Nowhere near as cold as some doom-mongering tabloids are forecasting but around London we'll see daily highs of just 3 degrees. On the plus side, the start of the week will see some lovely clear skies and winter sunshine.
That suits me just fine. I've got the next two days off and my Christmas shopping to start and finish. I quite like mooching in and out of warm shops on a cold crisp day - far better than struggling with an umbrella and all those shopping bags.
Enjoy the milder temperatures today and the sunshine tomorrow.
