The schools are quiet. Children and young people stroll along the High Street in my market town - often with a supervising grandparent in tow.
So it's time for a blog-break till the Autumn. I shall still be reading and writing. But I shall also use the long days to flop about in the sun:
To watch cricket:
And to play with grandchildren:
All of this add up, in my corner of the world, to the best sort of summer holidays! What about you?
