Today was extra super warm for the time of year: 21.7 °C, a record in the country and in our garden which is filled with birdsong, the scent of flowers and the croaks of amorous amphibians (oh and a hell of a lot of banging and drilling from the renderers working next door).
Today is also booktally day. In the last 6 years we have read 1536 books between us, 256 since last year, which by a strange coincidence is also our exact average number.
