There was a spectacular sunset on August 18th, during the height of the hot spell. Jack and Sidney (cats) posed for some snaps and Sidney became a regular visitor to my man cave (the garage, basically) where I was pleased to finish my latest book, with Sidney's help of course. It's provisionally titled Circus Girl, but I think that may change.

There was a dramatic visit to Cleethorpes beach from the coastguard helicopter, bringing a medical crew to attend to a woman who was thought to have been stabbed. And a visit to the antiques centre at Hemswell led to the purchase of a 'new' winter

coat. It's probably 1960s vintage but is in great condition and weighs a ton.'John Collier, John Collier, the window to watch'.

And last, but not least, the birth of our first grandson. Welcome, Ted.
