This is the Dayori from London .
It is the hottest day of the year with record-breaking 34 degrees as a result that it is expected to keep rising in the afternoon today. It is reported that it is hotter than Hawaii.
People go out of the house and are basking the sunshine in the garden .It is unbearable condition without the fan.
Having said that, however, according to the weather forecast in U.K. the forecasters have issued a warning that we may have the outbreak of thunderstorm in some part of England between 6:00 pm and midnight .
It is predicted that there will be a chance of flooding , power cuts and travel disruptions in some part of U.K. if it could happen . We need to be extra vigilant about the weather this time .
And also there is a warning from the local police that the burglars are on the lookout for those who keep the door open or leave the house unattended due to the hot weather .I bear in mind that if I slack a bit, the burglars take advantage of me .
I presume that the weather in Japan is in the midst of the rainy season now and very sticky .I fondly remember finding it very difficult to sleep at night .
I hope that the rainy season is going to be over soon
The topic of the conversation among people is reputed to be the weather .It is just because the weather in London is changeable every day. I have been fortunate to have a good weather today .
There is a small English traditional cottage where I live in the village .
This cottage is said to have been built in 1600’s and the owner of the house is still living here now
As it is the opening day for the charity , my wife and I have decided to drop in at the garden .It is said that the garden is being looked after by two professional gardeners . It is very beautiful .
I am going to send some of the pictures taken at the garden . Please enjoy .
This is regarded as one of the charity events for the disabled . It costs me £4 for the entry and £1. for a cup of tea.
Day 1 I joined the coach tour and this tour consisted of 42 people .
The coach departed at 9:30 am and arrived at 10:30 am at the Burton on the water . About one hour drive took me to the Burton on the water where it is one of the most popular destination for the Japanese guests
Every participant of the tour was very friendly and convivial although they are elderly . On top of that coach driver was funny and cracked jokes during the trip . I think that the coach driver played an important role in deciding whether the coach tourists could enjoy the tour . We were very fortunate to have good coach driver .
We admired the rolling hills and stone villages of the Cotswolds
This was the second time to visit the Burton on the water and as soon as I arrived , I felt that the atmosphere of the place remained unaltered.
I went to the Cafe in order to have a sandwich. This cafe is family-owned restaurant and the family was working so hard to make the guest pleasant during the lunch.
The coach tour took us to the “Stow on the Wold” . It was the enchanting local town . I was walking the town and came across the small Japanese group there . So I plucked up my courage to speak with one of the Japanese group guests in Japanese, but he dismissed me as he did not open his mind to speak with me .
So I was determined that I had a cup of coffee at the Cafe
The coach returned to the hotel at 5:30 pm via Chipping Camden
Breaking news from UK
I would like to break the news that Prince Harry had a boy early in the evening on 5th May 2019. The baby is a boy and both mum and baby are in good shape.
The newspaper mentioned as follows : “Harry is over the moon and the little thing is to die for. It had been the amazing moment that I have never experienced. The first glimpse which we can catch of will be in a couple of days when she is ready to pose for the photo.”
Ceremonial easel which informs us of the new baby was placed in the foreground of the Buckingham Palace on that day .
It was due to this news through TV that I made up my mind to go to the Buckingham Palace to see the easel and I went there the following day . But the easel was removed from the foreground .
I got the latest news . Megan and Harry announced that a new baby boy was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten -Windsor .
I took some pictures of the Buckingham Palace . So I would be grateful if if I could share the picture with you
PS. to die for means excellent, to be strongly wished for.
