The temperature has been around 31 C all day today and I have decided I'm just not programmed to cope with that kind of warmth at this time of year! [That's typically British - never being content with the weather.] Even a Sicilian acquaintance I bumped into in the supermarket this morning said she was ready for some cooler days now.
When I returned from Britain I think I did the cambio di stagione [season change] of my clothes a little too enthusiastically: I donned my autumn and winter blacks and then a neighbour asked me if it was for il lutto [mourning]. It was nice of him to be concerned but it made me change back to lighter coloured clothes! I think a lot of the women here don't quite know what to wear at the moment: denim ensembles seem to be a good solution until the weather makes its mind up.
