Key points noted in the last couple of days include:
- The man who walked past me in Soho, clad in a black leather jacket and black leather trousers. Temperature in the street? 31 degrees How he was not melting, I cannot conceive.
- The large hole in the ground in Greenford, West London, where gas and/or water works are taking place. Or rather not taking place. There's a big sign on the fencing, reading:
WORKS SUSPENDED TO REDUCE DISRUPTION DURING COLD WEATHER
How thoughtful of them....
