Up early and writing well this morning on my poetry MS. I am making daily progress. So good to have this time. 

It was unbelievably cold for the 22nd June, however. My study is cold in the morning at the best of times, but I was sat with two jumpers, a scarf and a hat on and I was freezing. Eventually I cracked and put the heating on. 

The usual walk this afternoon. Lorraine working late, and had taken food, so I binge watched a TV programme called Motherland, the writing of which is excellent and ate beans on toast. When Lorraine arrived home, and we and Jade watched England squeak another 1-0 against the footballing wizards of the Czech Republic.
