You know it's September when

You think your road bike is making funny noises, and you've lost some fitness suddenly. Turns out the roads are just covered in grape juice... ;)

I've stopped gate-crashing my French friends' holidays to La Grande Motte and Palavas

We have the same problem in Burgundy, grape juice and tractors everywhere. This morning was just 3C for the morning school run then flaming 22c in the afternoon - no wonder we're all coming down with colds!

You are too hot in your dressing gown and too cold in just your nightie in the morning. Ditto too hot with a duvet and too cold without. And what the hell to wear when the morning school run is 15c and for picking em up its 26c
