Living in Ireland has its ups and downs. To be fair, a lot more ups but there’s one thing that always seems to let me down here. What is it you ask? The weather! It’s generally a country plagued with rain, cold and dull miserable days. Usually throughout the year! But every so often we get a spell of good weather and it’s delightful. Today is one of those days! It’s absolutely gorgeous outside, with the sun belting down and lighting the place up.
It’s currently 21 degrees, which to a lot of other countries is nothing. When I lived in Barcelona, this was considered a normal day come summer time. Anything under 30 degrees seemed to be a disappointment! But to us, anything over 18 degrees is considered an extremely warm day and a shock to the system. I never understood though how 21 degrees here in Ireland feels like it’s 30 degrees in Spain! It’s obviously something to do with the climate and humidity difference, but all I know is I’m about the pass out from the heat right now! Getting weather like this really does make my day, it lightens up the mood and makes for a productive mindset. I live in the countryside too, so the scenery is fantastic when it’s sunny. The birds are chirping and the colours are dazzling! I’m surrounded by fields of grass, hills, animals and flowers. It’s almost therapeutic!
Sunday’s are usually my lazy day. I’m presuming this is a common theme for most people though! Chilling on my bed has now been made even more enjoyable, as the sun is shining directly on me. As you can tell from the photo, it’s very relaxing. I can’t think of anything more enjoyable right now. Writing blog posts, reading your creative posts and connecting with new people. It’s only a matter of time before I fall asleep though, this is a bit too relaxing! Unfortunately, I know this weather won’t last so I’m having to make the most of it today. Hopefully it sticks around for a few more days or weeks! A man can hope.
How has your Sunday been so far? I’m also intrigued to know what the weather is like in your country? Let me know in the comments below!
