I have reached the stage in life where the years seem to be going quicker.
And so it was that today I was back at Headingley cricket ground for the annual 364 Club Lunch with, amongst other regulars, John "John Kettley Is A Weatherman" Kettley (white shirt)
He even signed me a copy of his book (available on eBay).
And, thanks to John, this year I have a White Stuff weather exclusive for you.
Between the roast beef and the vanilla creme brulee, Steve (pictured left) asked John if this summer was going to be "shit."
John said no.
Don't forget folks, you read it here first.
