Some people have been saying things about the English.
I'd just like to share a spot of evidence that I may very well have reassimilated.
We have recently been enjoying some absolutely splendid weather, "Shirtsleeves weather". Temperatures in the high 20's centigrade (70's, almost 80's Fahrenheit), clear blue skies, calm air, simply wonderful.
Today it clouded over and tomorrow threatens a shower or two.
I heard myself say to someone at work "I'll be quite glad to get a spot of rain again".
