A bit of quiet…

April is usually a strange time here on our islands. I guess the weather plays an important part. The greenery all around us is still lush and verdant following the February rains, but the heat starts to set in at a most inappropriate manner.

Yes that’s it…the weather. Sometimes in April it can be so cold and windy as to really bother you, and at times it so hot that it makes you wonder if we are already in summer.

The first week in April was surprisingly hot, with temperatures reaching up to 25 degrees, while what followed was a ten day period of dull weather with strong winds..VERY STRONG winds.

It is now a really nice breezy warm day that makes you want to grab a bottle of wine and a traditional Maltese Ftira, and make your way to the beach.

Speaking of which, me and my family have officially launched the swimming season. Every year we advance the time in which we take the plunge…and this year the date has been forwarded to the 13th of April. HAve written this down on our calendar, so maybe next year we can advance this too!
