So my first week back in the day job has been one I'll never forget!
After a year away from my maps presenting news, Sunday was certainly a sleepless night as I prepared for my return!
But not just a return to the old way of doing things - this was a return to a whole new way of life!
Don't we look good? So... new building. And even more terrifying, filming in HD (high definition).
No - we're not broadcasting in HD yet, but everything we do is HD. And that means no more smudged make-up, no more hair of out place!
All in all, a pretty terrifying prospect!
And then there's the weather itself! A whole world of synoptic charts and pressure sequences! Would I remember how to do it? No more comfy news sofa or autocue.... Well, i'm getting there!
So I'm now firmly back in the weather family, and I have to say it's lovely to be back!
And what a week of weather we have had!
The week began with such promise. Flaming June was coming to an end, but the sun shone on all of us! Temperatures reached highs of 22.8C in Porthmadog - pretty respectable for the time of the year.
It was good weather for dogs - here's a doggy on the beach in Porthcawl, realising that sand really does get everywhere!
You sent me your pet-pics in the hundreds! And I'm ever so grateful!
And not to be out done, even cats were getting in on the act!
But you were warned to make the most of it! Because by mid-week, the wind of change was preparing to a dampener on our days.
And as we welcomed in July, we welcomed in some more unsettled weather.
Thursday limped in with a few drizzly patches, but by Friday, we were talking about proper rain! And in some parts of Wales, rain by the bucket load!
It was very much a case of rain stopping play in this football match in Barry.
But of course the big question is - will we be in with a sporting chance as far as the weather is concerned this weekend? Well - if you don't mind a spot of sunshine and showers, then you're in for a treat!
