FOOTNOTES: The British summer is a tenuous thing. Startled from my post prandial snooze the other day by the most enormous crash of thunder, which was then followed by a monsoon-like downpour, I thought dolefully of the journey I had to make to London that evening. The company I was doing a voice-over for had arranged a car from Victoria, but I still had to get to Lewes, dry, preferable, in order to catch the train. I began to remember other excursions I had made as a child from London to the seaside, when my mother and I always seemed to choose the one day of the summer that it poured down. We spent most of the day consuming fish and chips, and sitting under cover on the pier, before squelching our way back to the station or coach, for the journey home. Those immortal lines of Edward Dowson floated into my mind. ‘They are not long, the days of wine and roses’. How very true. The rain stopped, the roads dried out, the sun poked its head out for a brief while and the journey I was dreading was in fact comfortable and dry, so the day ended well.

Enjoy your week and go safely.
