My eldest will be delighted to hear about this.   She often teases me about the number of emptied and carefully flattened boxes I have stashed away in hidden corners.  Alma and I make models from them, or use them as play houses, or 'dens' in the garden.etc.  But I will, reluctantly, admit the supply is slowly and inexorable outstripping the need.

I have an occasional purge on green bin recycling day, which probably makes the bin men think someone else has recently moved in with me.

Now she will be able to tell people her dad is a secret cardboard trafficker, which does sound a bit more interesting than being a mere hoarder.

Which sounds eminently civilised.  Every day should have a portion where you do nothing but read.

But would you parcel up a bit of your heatwave and send it to me?  In return, I'll send you some grey skies, drizzle, and a regular maximum temperature of 20 degrees.  Fair exchange is no robbery.

1)  Absolutely. ;-) I had to smile when I read someone saying they set themselves a target of reading fifty books a year but rarely manage to meet it.  She obviously has too many distractions in her busy life.

2)  If I could I would, Jo;-)

I've often joked about this estate having a micro-climate of its own,which I half-jokingly blame on the fact we live on a small hill.  It's only about sixty feet higher than the surrounding area, but sometimes a weather pattern seems to get stuck here whilst it's cycling through the changes around us.

Makes you wonder about the mules employed to get the cardboard through customs.  :-\

Yet another derogatory epithet applied to Kaiser Wilhelm II.
