I saw a seal again this morning. That's every morning this week during my walk to work (Monday was a national holiday). Still cold on the hands but forecast to warm up over the weekend, there was a lovely cotton wool sky this morning.
I visited my brother in the Midlands for his birthday at the weekend. The weather was bright and warmer than here. I'm less than 200 miles south of him, but closer to the sea which makes quite a difference; I reckon this morning here was 3°C (16°F) cooler than it was when I was there yesterday.
