    ah, the coast is truly paradise, isn't it? (When the weather is as nice as it is right now. We have violet-green swallows swooping over our house, checking out our nestboxes…)

    Paradise, Theresa – you lucky sod. EXCEPT WHEN IT RAINS CONSTANTLY FOR WEEKS ON END. The weather here is like the pain of labour – when it's over, what greets you is so magnificent that you forget the pain.

    Sort of.
