It hasn't been the hottest of summers in this part of France France this year. There have been one or two very warm days, but it's never really been properly hot for more than two days at a time. It's times like this when people start asking if we miss Australia and sunshine. The answer is we don't miss Australian summers at all - they can be far too hot - and besides, Australian summers aren't all sunshine, either.
