The summer has shown herself at last and we can shed some clothes and stroll in the warmth of her breath. We got up early and I showered and walked Louis out in the early morning sun. The world was so quiet and so a new morning was just beginning as the sun was rising. The rays were so warm even this early.
A Sunny Day
The sun was shining so bright,
having beaten the clouds in fight.
We wanted to go out for fun,
I wish the clouds could beat the sun.
Evening came and the sun went down,
We all went for a walk in the town.
Water was flowing down the stream,
While I was licking my ice cream.
The stars shone brightly in the sky,
they finally showed all their might

Where are we now?
First of all, all the amendments made in the House of Lords, which won over the support of the Lords, remain.
Second, there is much more time available now for MPs to debate the Bill. We are not faced with a looming general election and we are at the beginning of the new Parliament. This means that MPs can debate and amend the Bill.
We know that government ministers support the Bill, as does Labour’s shadow health Minister Andy Burnham. So, it has a good chance.
But there is, as you know, genuine opposition from some medical bodies, including Royal Colleges and the BMA. Many have changed their positions over the past two years and we hope we can persuade them to change their minds back again to supporting the Bill, as it develops.
Lord Saatchi listened to his colleagues in the Lords and amended the Bill and now MPs will have their say – and through them, so will all those – patients, doctors and lawyers – who have an opinion.
This is democracy and we hope all will join the debate and make this Bill a success.
