I hate this uncertain summer weather, when it’s neither warm nor cold, overcast yet muggy, and susceptible to last minute changes from bright sunshine to pouring rain. I’m finding it very difficult to dress myself appropriately.
I’ve nothing to tell you this week I’m afraid! Dapper wasn’t feeling100% over the weekend – a rarity in itself – so we had a very lazy couple of days, only leaving the house to walk the dogs. We are trying to incorporate some longer walks into our weekends anyway, to build up a bit of stamina before we head back into the North country in August. I am grateful for my walking trainers after weekends such as this one, particularly as I watch Dapper plastering up his blisters…
Speaking of injuries, I had a moment of stupidity on Saturday night, a run-in with a pan of hot oil which has left me with a rather sore and blistered forearm. I get so frustrated when I incur an injury which is entirely and inarguably my own fault. I have become slap-dash with my cooking, far too self-assured by half, even cocky about my heatproof fingers… What I’m really getting at is that it serves me right!
Still hurts though.
Anyhoo, I’ve got about a dozen items to list on ebay tonight, so I’ll love you and leave you, with some pictures of… thistles! And busy buzzy bees!
