Intent

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew and shows two views of the town of Boston in Lincolnshire. It was another hot day here today, with our local weather station recording 29°C, and our friends Mike and Alison Tinker saying that their garden thermometer got up to 30°.

After our hot and humid day yesterday,Continue reading “Fairly calm after the storm”
