We had an unexpected text and email this morning from our younger son who is now in Penang. He said it was hotter than ever. I only wish we could get a bit of the "hotter than ever" here in Southport where we've been dodging showers all day. It was the Ainsdale show today and just a glimmer of late afternoon sunshine saved the day - for the rest of the time the tents rattled in the wind and the show-goers got a soaking. I spotted the traffic wardens in the village this morning - the first time for ages, and on show day too - no wonder they get a bad name.
