I knew we were in for a change of weather when I got up one morning last week and saw this view out the window.
The summer seems to be fading fast. We had a lot of rain at the end of last week, and on Sunday it was cold. When we went out we all wore a jumper or a coat. But my toes were cold in my shoes and I wished I had some gloves on when I was pushing the pram and couldn't put my fingers under my arms for warmth. I've heard there is even fresh snow on the Belledonne mountains that we can see across the valley from our house. Actually I can't see them today, which is why I can't confirm the snow report; but on a clear day we have a beautiful view of the mountains.
Do they have Indian summers here? I don't know. But while I don't like the heat I wouldn't mind a few more weeks of being able to wear sandals.
