Summer in The City




Here in Old Blighty we're enjoying the first of the summer sun, with temperatures soaring to 76F today in London.

Usually the Weather in April is like this for about a week to ten days and then goes back to being a little less balmy until the Summer starts proper. 

So, whilst this may indeed be a 'False Summer', make the most of it and get down to the new pool side in London City North and enjoy the swim balls and floats.   There is even a bar for those of you who need a beer whilst relaxing!

Spring in the air!



There is a feeling of spring in the air in London City as many shops remerchandise for the Spring Season.

With just a few days to go until March is here, warmer days and lighter evenings are just around the corner.

Check out this Springtime kit!

Let there be light... and there was!



Today is the Winter Solstice.
That means that it is the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere with a sunset at 3.53pm or seeming even earlier if its cloudy.

So that's the bad news out of the way.  The good news is that for those of us who detest winter and darkness,  just hang in there, things are about to improve!

Sunset will be a minute later each day now.

By New Years Eve it will be just after 4pm, and by the end of January we will start to enjoy an extra 2 minutes a day of light and the sunset won't be until 4.40pm. 

By end of February the daylight will increase by an hour a month, with sunsets at 5.40pm. By the end of March you simply won't care, it will be 6.30pm before night time and when the clocks go forward on 30th March, we will be basking in sunlight until 7.30pm.

The beauty of virtual worlds is that you can stick two fingers up at Mother Nature and roll the seasons a bit earlier if you want to. This year will be no exception in London City, where we like things as sunny as possible.  In fact, there is already a couple of daffodils sprouting shoots which would indicate a very early spring!

A spring in your step



Enough of the bleak winter and the snow and the wind howling at your door.

Get some colour to those lily white legs in London City and shake off the misery of Winter.  Thank heavens for the immersive experience of Second Life.   Who needs a light bulb for Seasonal Affective Disorder when you can bask in the sunshine in London City.    Spring has sprung and in London Seaside...  here comes Summer...
