sexual assaults, from kissing to the repeated rape of a girl,

have understood how serious it was.

Thank you it has been a pleasure. I wish I was ending my forecast with
gorgeous clear blue shut skies and plenty of sunshine but alas we've
hit the nail on the head with this photograph. Grey, overcast skies
with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and that is sadly how it will stay

than four or 5 degrees. There won't be a frost tomorrow morning. But it
will be cloudy, grey, overcast. The winds will remain light on the

with things turning much colder. That's it

day or night from the rather grey routine.
That is because we have a weather front, albeit very weak and very
little wind to move the cloud and the mist on. Those areas furthest
