Sunday 5 August hottest day of the year?

Up to sunny skies and a promise of a hot day. Where have we heard that before. Said goodbye to one B&B couple and turned around the room ready for the next guests due to arrive later in the day. Bakewell was busy when we went to get the paper. Lunch was not until nearly 2pm. We were also expecting a colleague of Chris, together with his wife and young boy. They were going to stay the night in our spare room breaking their journey from London to Scotland. They had stopped for lunch in Bakewell before coming here. If nothing else it meant we had a few hours of during the afternoon and evening. We also had a BBQ – our first one this year!

Our next B&B guests arrived on time and it looks like we did have the warmest day of the year so far – in fact the warmest day in over a year! (more please!) Max temp 24.7.
