It rained most of yesterday. Halfway through the trip we stopped in Solihull for lunch and to lay in some groceries. There's a very big Tesco there, just off the motorway. The M6 was congested, as it so often is, between junctions 15 and 18.

When we arrived the temperature in Oldham was 5 degrees lower than the temperature in West Kent.

Sam's kids were bouncing around last night. It sounded like party games. That's one thing you don't hear at my mother's- children's voices.

What you do hear is birdsong- and the continuous drone of traffic from the A21 and the Maidstone Rd. I'm sitting here in our back room, the neighbours aren't up yet and it's remarkably quiet.
