Good morning all
Hot and clammy yesterday, but no rain. Had to put the sprinkler on the beans! 21.9C here at the moment.
I'm lunching with a former colleague too, to help her celebrate her well-deserved First in her BSc Hons Social Work Apparently it's not just an ordinary First, it has Stars, Bells and Whistles on!!! She's worked so hard for this in some difficult circumstances, supporting her daughter through the loss of her baby (and her first grandchild) whilst working on her dissertation, so we're all so pleased for her
However, feeling a bit shell-shocked as I've just heard my pensions advice chap died a few weeks ago - he was a fascinating chap, a Dane and a former professor of botanical sciences at the UEA and John Innes, who had made a second very successful career for himself as an IFA - meetings with him were never boring. I shall miss him. Plus I've got to find someone else to do his job ...
