So, the summer is upon us. Parliament’s in recess, school’s out and everyone’s off on holiday.
We had a couple of weeks in Orkney last month, lovely but a bit cold (although actually, we were quite glad to miss the heatwave).
It’s supposed to be the silly season just now but there doesn’t seem to be a lot to laugh about in the news.
But what happened on the blog last week?
As it sounds as if responses may not be read by anyone in government I thought I may as well put it online here.

The next post in my series on tenancy agreements
Another post by Ben on the tricks of his trade
