Sometimes I wonder about the British weather. For the past two weeks, it’s been unusually hot and sunny, and you’d expect it to be fairly constant. However, after two weeks of staring out at the glorious weather from my office window, it finally rains, on a bank holiday. Typical.

However, undeterred, a few of us braved the elements to meet up with some other brave souls from churches around London to meet up and chill and Battersea Park. Given the rather damp weather, the morning was spent wandering around the V&A museum, which was rather cool, especially looking at the modern design exhibits.

Eventually, the weather cleared and we met up in a warm, sunny, albeit rather pollen blanketed, Battersea Park. The sun even dried the ground and made it possible to sit and chill on the grass and play football and volleyball.

The day finished at Nandos in Elephant and Castle. It was good to be able to spend the afternoon catching up with old friends and meeting new friends.
