We may have nude sunbathing in Hanley, but where's this blistering heatwave that was promised? It's been very nice the last twelve days, but nowhere near a heatwave. Today was supposed to be the big shocker, but no. Just pleasantly warm. I don't even need a fan on, let alone an air-conditioner. Same for tomorrow, with the run of warm weather breaking next Thursday. The real problem currently is the return of 'the stink' from around the nearby landfill at Silverdale. Last night was it was very strong, despite the stiff wind, and this time it had the added and faintly nausiating scent of sick in it. Lovely.
