A friend has recently posted about using a parasol, which inspired me to order one. Well, it's also an umbrella but it claims to protect against UV. It's light coloured and much prettier than my utilitarian black umbrella.
Of course just a minute ago it started raining and by the time it arrives, we'll probably be back to normal Welsh weather, but... it's an umbrella too! :)
Anyway, if these hot summers are the new normal, I'll have it in good time for next year.
