DATELINE MONDAY 18TH JULY 2022
Good morning on this Monday morning, but it is not any Monday morning it is a hot Monday morning and at last I can use my favourite Sun Newspaper headline Cor what a scorcher!
Greetings from the sunny, sultry, super sun drenched streets of North West London, I hope you are well.
OMG I just love, love, love this weather, the sun is beating down through my open office window there is a light breeze and as they say in McDonalds I am loving it. However the news channels are putting the wind up everyone saying OMG its going to be very dangerous it’s going to be hot, hot, hot, for the next two days. OK I get that elderly and vulnerable people need to be warned but they need to take care whatever the weather if it is too cold or too hot. Oh an another thing millions of people that live in the UK go off every year in search of sunshine and 40 degrees C to Spain Dubai, South of Turkey, Israel, Cyprus, Greece, etc so what is the problem? Train companies are cancelling services just in case there is a problem, I guess there will be other challenges with regular public services as well so hold on tight enjoy the sunshine, its summer in the UK.
Europe seems to be ablaze at the moment Spain, Portugal, Greece and France are all experiencing wildfires, they happen every year, it still makes the news.
Congratulations to The Lionesses OMG 8 – 0 win over Norway opps, poor old Norway I think they call this a drabbing.
That’s it, you are up to date from a David point of view .
