So many feelings.

LOOK AT THIS rainfall radar. LOOK AT IT!

What a thing of beauty.

Temperatures around the country are set to hit 21 degrees today, there’s no rain forecast and it’s looking good for the coming days too.

Here are some feelings it’s okay to feel.

INJUSTICE

You’re at work, inside, in an office/school/home/factory/pub while outside the sun blazes away, wasting its precious life-giving rays on ungrateful tourists and undeserving teenagers. How is this fair? How?

This, dear readers, could be the catalyst you finally need to start doing the Lotto.

JEALOUSY

What about those people who are at work but are outside anyway? Gardeners, zookeepers, traffic wardens. What you wouldn’t give to swap places with them for just one day.

DISTRUST OF MET EIREANN

Met Eireann has let you down before. Who’s to say someone won’t glance out the window at 4.52pm and say with a resigned sigh:

Ah! There’s the bloody rain.

Or at 5.58pm, just as you settle in a beer garden with your first pear cider of the season, someone’s bound to hold out a flattened paw and exclaim:

Did you feel that?

Of course you felt it. You’ve been expecting it.

DISTRUST OF YOURSELF

You knew it was going to be warm today, and yet you went ahead and applied those tights/that wooly jumper/those roasting trousers. Will you ever learn?

LEAVING MENTIONITIS RAGE

All it’s going to take is one more person, just one more, equating the good weather with the Leaving Cert for you to snap.

JOY

It could be 8 degrees and torrentially raining this day next week. Wrap your gob around a Loop The Loop and enjoy the moment.
