It's 30 here, which is unheard of for this part of the country.
Yes, Ludlow is a lovely town. I am over there at least twice a year, having my car serviced and MOT-ed (bought the car from a Skoda specialist just outside the town some years ago, and he's so reliable I've been going back ever since). I have run through it, walked through it, mooched around the shops and the market, visited the castle, and been for walks on the Common.
I'm with your wife, John B, - playing with grandchildren is vastly preferable to sitting in a car on the M25. Or even, than shopping.
Knee not so good today. I went out soon after 7 this morning (not so hot then, and some shade being cast) to run 3.8 miles (I am trying to increase the distance by 10% each time). Outward journey not too bad, but knee became really painful on the return; I was limping by the end, and very slow throughout. However, I have my X-ray appointment now, so hopefully that will clarify things a little.
