‘Tis British Summer Time. No, really.

Today was the first full day of British Summer Time; we did our springing ahead overnight Saturday-to-Sunday.

Working with the weather means being flexible. So when Friday afternoon looked like this, we jumped — walked, actually — to Portobello, which is an hour’s walk from our flat.

Not before this caught our eye:
