You’ve probably heard people say it before, when the sun shines in London it’s the best place in the world! And I believe this to be true. When there’s sun, we celebrate. Everyone gets their lily-white legs out, shimmy’s into their favourite summer outfit, grabs their friends and heads outside.
I watch the weather forecast like a hawk, and when I saw 25c and sunshine predicted for last Saturday, I Whatsapp’d my friends and said ‘Get yourself to Franks Bar in Peckham on Saturday afternoon!’.
They were awfully obedient and all turned u at my favourite rooftop bar for some Pimm’s in Peckham. Franks has the best view of London, being on top of an old carpark building, the views spread far and wide and your iPhone snapshots become Instagram masterpieces.
We soaked up the sun, we drank Pimm’s and Aperol Spritz, and we celebrated a perfect London summer’s day. We don’t take that sh*t for granted, hot and sunny aren’t two words that are regularly put into the same sentence here in London (here’s looking at you global warming!).
It seems we’re on a winning streak though, and this weekend looks set to shine again! Hooray! The friends have been Whatsapp’d, the plan has been made, and we’ll soak up that sun again and celebrate the best city to be in on a perfect summer’s day.
Happy Summer Londoner’s x
