Spring is back (again!)

Walked in really hot sunshine this morning with the dogs. Met lots of other walkers and joggers (think they breed in the hot weather.) Met two pairs of horses too. One pair was local, the other had come all the way over from Weston.

All this spring sunshine has once again emphasised the dust and grime of the winter, so MWNN has declared this to be the start of the Great Spring Clean Week. I notice though that, he's been remarkably silent in his endeavours downstairs, and have just spotted that he's busy watching the Semi-Finals of the European Rugby. So, having done the windows, mirrors, curtains and surfaces upstairs, I'm now off to have a soak in the tub.

ETA at 18.10 Listened to The Hollies Greatest Hits while in the bath. I remember being distraught when Graham Nash left to join Crosby and Stills (and later, Young). But the group's sound didn't change radically, although I missed his high harmonies. Listening to the couple of tracks (from the '71-'73 era) that are without the voice of Alan Clarke, however, is something else. They are just another group, ordinary, no magic The sound of the Hollies is Alan's voice. It's a bit like thinking of Simply Red without Mick Hucknal, The Rolling Stones sans Mick Jagger, The Kinks without Ray Davies Roxy Music without . . . well you get the picture! - Just sayin' -
