Wise Words

 A quote from George Fox, founder of the Society of Friends [aka the Quakers] which seems particularly apposite on what is expected to be a Very Hot Day...

  7. It’s so hot today in mid Scotland and we’re not used to it. I have been indoors most of the day and will lie in our darkened living room at 4pm and do a blissful hour of Pilates online. I’m deconstructing shirts for the fabric and buttons in the coolest room I can find in the house. Catriona

  9. I do hope it cools down for tomorrow and the rest of the week! We had 33°C yesterday which is enough for me but this afternoon it is comfortable at 21°C. I could live with this temperature year round!
