      It sure is!

      I recall driving in to work down the A1 into London. During term time the queue of traffic would start around the picnic area just after the Borehamwood junction. During the summer it would start about 10m from the roundabout where the A41 joins the A1.

      Is it surprising that children now are considerably larger than their Mums & Dads were at school age?

      Well, it guarantees one thing. After a wet summer, the first 2 or 3 weeks back in school were always hot and dry.

      Mind you, that was a long time ago and before climate change . . .

      Sounds like a good time to book some hols. Might be cheaper too if I can get them in before half term.
