11:52 pm

11:53 pm
of training aspect of going into the national curling academy every single day and travelling the world and living out of a suitcase and there is left on the side of curling, isn't there and that's what i want to explore. there's been so many eyes, two olympic medals, three road medals there's been so many eyes, two olympic medals, three world medals and ten european metals at senior level. i think but the favour highlight is so many fantastic to my career and standards and top of that podium at the olympic gold—medal was the highlight. they have got the gold. i think my emotions definitely showed that. years ago, winning the world championships was also one of my big highlights but, then again, winning four world junior titles as well. it is well in the list is go on and there it is well in the list is go on and there are times as well that i realise how lucky i am and ended up i realise how lucky i am and ended up competing in the games with my two

patches dotted around. for most of you, they will clear. and for the vast majority, again, it's going to be another day of blue skies from dawn till dusk. a few exceptions, though. eastern coasts of england, from lincolnshire northwards, we could see some mist and see fog patches just drift ashore — not many of them. certainly more for eastern coasts of scotland, and in the far north of scotland, our weather front�*s still there. not producing as much rain or drizzle and the better chance of some brightness, so maybe a little bit warmer compared with thursday. but elsewhere, away from these eastern coasts, where the mist and fog rolls its way in every now and again, it's going to be an even warmer day — temperatures 36 celsius potentially through parts of the midlands. and then into the evening, a warm evening in store. most will be under clear skies again, but mist and low cloud becomes more of an issue, eastern scotland and through the central belt, towards the glasgow area. it means temperatures won't drop as much here compared with what we see into friday morning. and a warm night elsewhere, particularly so west wales and parts of west cumbria, to the west of high ground. we'll see really temperatures hold up. could see temperatures above 20 degrees for some. and that sets us off to a very warm start to saturday, lots of sunshine again,
