    It's not doing much. Not cold nor warm. Not wet. Not bright, just cloudy!

    Grey and drizzly here at the moment, but that means nothing, as it usually clears up later

    Turned out a lovely evening yesterday, where we enjoyed chatting and having a few drinkies outside until it got dark

    A bit dull and overcast at the moment, but not at all cold. Just about to go out with my dad, Del and David for Sunday lunch at our favourite pub in Wrexham:

    As is usually the case here, the weather has changed drastically in the afternoon and early evening... Currently 25C and as sunny as a very sunny thing!

    Just back from my usual six-mile power walk, and sweating like a pig, so into the shower now, then an ice-cool Peroni awaits!!

    Raining this morning but got better at lunch. Now clear skies and very warm. Been to the monkey forest today. Saw some monkeys, owls, kookaburras and a tarantula. One of the owls was massive with eyes the colour of the power on light on a proper power amp. The children were leaning over the fence talking to it and it got very pissed off and went for them, sent them scattering. I mean it was on a very short tether so it couldn't actually get to them but you should have seen the fear on their little faces. That was probably the best bit actually.
