Looks like summer

Today we woke at 7 am to 17 degrees, with 27 degrees predicted for this afternoon, fingers crossed that summer has arrived at long last.
Needless to say that our pool heat pump broke a couple of weeks ago, we are awaiting a part from the UK for our French pool man to fit. At least with temperatures soaring the pool will heat up on its own, so maybe I will be able to have a swim at last.
We put up our new shade sail yesterday to finish off the improvements to the terrace in the expectation of eating outdoors more often now.
