I love the Shipping Forecast.

The Shipping Forecast may provide vital weather information to sea captains and sailors, but some of the most devoted fans are those of us who listen to it for its poetic quality.

The Shipping Forecast is a BBC Radio broadcast of weather reports and forecasts for the seas around the coasts of the British Isles. It is produced by the Met Office and broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. The forecasts sent over the Navtex system use a similar format and the same sea areas. The waters around the British Isles are divided into 31 sea areas, also known as weather areas (see above).

Phil Lester couldn’t help think something was wrong. I mean, his life was pretty damn perfect if he didn’t say so himself. But there was something niggling at the back of his mind as he lay his head against the window of the TAXI and breathed softly in sync to the playlist of sweet coffee shop melody’s he had put together to prevent him from stressing out.

6:30pm: the pressure’s mounting as I count down the days to my MCD exam! I’m still making notes, and while I am aware I need to set time aside to go over the material, writing out notes helps me remember anyway. I make sure to go outside once in a while and enjoy the sunshine and good weather; BBC Weather says it’s going to rain badly on Saturday, the day I’m moving back into halls! Great…
