Confidential : Bank Holiday blues - Plus, are men pulling their weight? - Today News Post News Post || Euro News:

Every week Frank Leavers our man with the dirty Mac and half empty glass of inexpensive vino is looking at what lies just below the sophisticated gloss of island life. Come on folks; tell our Frank what’s really happening in Mallorca.

We have just completed the August Bank Holiday weekend here in the United Kingdom and as you might expect nothing much changes at all over the years. As usualPatrick Osler, 43, gets his COVID-19 AstraZeneca shot a, the weather has been nondescript (I can’t think of a better wordcaptionPosition!) where a sort of grey murkiness abounds, well – in my part of the world anyway.

It seems to me that unlike the Mediterranean, where I have been following your weather with growing alarm as it switches from a broiling 40oC to torrential rains and quite possibly back again. Here it is always grey with a hint of blue in the late afternoon with the temperature fixed at between 17oC and if you are really luckyThe virus could be in a few weeks, the giddy heights of 20oC and this is in August! However, in that most annoying of modern phrases – “It is what it is.” However, for those of us who live (or have lived) permanently in Mallorca what strikes me on every visit is just how green this island remains all year round.
