WHY IS IT SO HOT????????????
Really it's just NOT British. I've just got back from my run and I thought I was going to expire from heat exhaustion, this is not the sort of weather to be unloading wholefood in, or driving an (un air conditioned) truck. You can forget anything I posted a few weeks ago about how comfortable my bunk is, last night it was MUCH TOO HOT (until about 2-00am when it cooled down enough for me to consider actually getting underneath the duvet). I know that there are people, unnatural people, who think that hot weather is a GOOD THING, but I feel compelled to disagree MOST STRONGLY!
Okay, I'm glad I've got that off my chest! I've had a shower and changed into clean loose clothes, opened all the windows so that I have a breeze (of sorts) blowing through the house and I feel almost human again.
I'd like you all to think positive thoughts for Ro who has developed an ear infection which has left her in a swollen and lumpy state and a significant amount of pain. I said I'd mention her so that you can all think positive thoughts so she gets better quickly 'cos if there's one thing worse than having an ear infection it's having an ear infection and having to look after yourself and having no one to whinge at except an absent sister.
(She says that Gracie is being very sympathetic though, which is nice!).
