Cover up cardigans

Yeah, we know it was sunny last week, and we all thought it was summer, but we should have known. What’s that saying again? Never cast a clout until May’s out. (It’s something like that, if you want to know more, look here).

The clout in the saying, is a coat, a cover-up, a cardigan. So, for the whole of May, keep those cardigans in your bag! You never know in this country when you need one! But, according to the old saying, you need one for the whole of May.
