Hot now, summer

in the city  town.

It's  lovely and sunny here in rural England, but I'm now housebound because it's too darn hot.





The town, nevertheless, is looking very pretty



















and summery.















Last week, we went into town and had lunch at Lusssmans the new restaurant in Sun Street.

The meal was a little pricey but well worth it for MWNN's freshly-made Sussex pork rillette starter and fishcake main course. My beefburger was beautifully cooked, tender and fragrently seasoned.









There was a Kids' Day in the Market Square, with the town train,


















a carousel,


















and a couple of Dennises













Hitchin TV, once again, caught the town in all its beauty, in the sunshine










In other good news - I have new summer walking shoes, that can be worn without socks..











Sketchers Go Walk 2










Amazon was great. The first pair I ordered were size 3 and wre tight across the instep. A free return (via Amazon Locker) and the second pair, size 4, arrived 24 hours after arranging the return.
