Walk down to the main road to catch a bus to Lincoln. Only five minutes to wait, assuming bus running on time. Hopped on an earlier bus running late.

Mild, but very strong wind blowing. In the High Street it was blowing straight up the High Street.

Sincil Street very busy. Demolishes the myth people prefer High Street chain stores. I have yet to find anyone who thinks demolition of Sincil Street is a good idea. Typical, a dysfunctional local council lacking vision is not listening. People see a council out of touch and on the take.

Revival in Sincil Street very busy, especially when I looked in after lunch. Not just people popping in for tea, coffee and cakes, but also meetings, activities, workshops. Very warm from the winter sun.

Revival is earmarked for demolition for a soulless shopping centre.

River Witham was almost back to its normal level. Monday it was a raging torrent.

The Witch and Wardrobe, once a 16th century merchant’s house with features typical of the period, now a pub. Tacky banners outside, widescreen screens inside. If a pub landlord is so lacking in taste, he or she should be kicked out.

I did not fancy lunch at County Restaurant. Tried lunch at Café 44. Great for tea and coffee and cakes, but not for lunch, though the fresh mushroom soup was good.
