Here is a little free piece of advice from a seamonkey that has spent 5 years in the UK:
The weather here really really does suck. It is not exaggeration or whingeing. It bites.
If you are a person who appreciates the sight, the hint of sun (ie a normal human/sea monkey) then do not live here. It's not that the sun never ever shines, but it is not worth the suspense, hope and begging with god of choice, because the chances are you will go an entire summer without its cheery presence.
Just a warning.
