london 8.09pm 23C sunny sunday 2019

as forecast, the hot weather did not last, and it is dropped a lot today to highest 24C.  it is quite strange for the hot weather to just come for one day, it makes me wonder what is causing it to do that. 

quite a cloudy day today which partly explains why it is cooler.though now it has cleared up and is a cloudless blue sky. there are a few free fetes to go to today, but i decided to give them all a miss, and instead go to the paddington library as usual. haha. its a habit that i am so used to now. though i did digress from my usual route coming back, by continueing on the 36 bus to vauxhall, and happen to catch up with the 196 to the tesco in kennington.

that tesco store in kennington is closing today. i went about 1.30pm, but allready they were all sold out of the fresh meat, so they must have reduced the prices from this morning, so that only vegetables are left to reduce price… iceburg lettuce for 15p each.i got 3 of those, and pak choy 35p, chinese cabbage 31p. not a large haul, but it was exactly waht i was after; this hot weather is great for eating vegetables. 

the place looks like  it is being cleared up, with empty shelves, and even no shelves, they are allready dismantling it.

i googled it and read that they are putting a temporary structure in the carpark, using the fridges and shelves from the old store; and it will be smaller which they hope will be done in 3wks; not sure if it will be as well stocked as it wont be a superstore, but more like an express store. and be used for 30months while they intend to pull the present building  down and build a new development with a supermarket on the ground level and flats above it.   and two full grown trees in the road side will be chopped down. 

there are allready so many luxury flats being built just down the road ,around the us embassy, near the river.  they seem to think demand will continue, just who will be buying these flats i wonder?

when tesco bought the land, (dont know how long ago that was)it must be quite cheap, because it  is a lot of land they have bought, they got a huge carpark as well as this huge single storey store on it at present.
