Crazy Weather/ Achill Island
It’s been a Roller coaster here on Achill Island, with crazy weather.
The week started off cold enough 10-12 degrees celsius, overcast, grey, then midweek it went in the morning to 18-20 and then up to a hot day on Thursday of 24 degrees celsius to come down again today to 12 degrees.
Our poor bodies don’t know what is happening. Its been a jacket or jumper, summer dress, fleece jumper scenario.
This is what I mean about crazy weather on Achill Island. It always changes a lot, living by the Atlantic makes sure of that. But this week has been extreme. Full of energy one day, sleepy and dull the next.
My animals don’t know what they are at, running around in the sun and back to sleeping in front of the fire.
They are looking out going ‘Oh really’.
But what can we do about the weather? Nothing much, just get on with it. Irish weather world famous for its changeability. I see in the shops all the summer clothes are going on specials, it is just so risky to stock summer clothing with this kind of scenario.
So yep if you are buying clothing, think of what you get most use out of. We all have to start taking responsibility for the future, and our planet. Cheap quality clothing that will end up on landfill the environment can’t afford anymore.
We need to change our thinking and invest in clothing that will last and that we get wear out of.
Here’s to a future for our kids. [maxbutton id=”4″ ]
