Have been busy checking through the edits of a couple of books coming out as e-books but had to break off that for a trip to London. Sitting in the sunshine at Lords for the opening day of the test match against Sri Lanka takes some beating and it was a wonderful day. Persuaded next day by my son to go up to the viewing area at the Shard – 68 floors up – but a fabulous view over London on a clear sunny day. London Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral looked so small way down below. We followed this with a visit to St Paul’s and we climbed up all the steps (no lift this time) to the Whispering Gallery. Great day but, after all the hustle and bustle of the city it was lovely to be back in the calm and quiet of Devon.
