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.
