The 26th & 27th; I would have gladly stayed all day for the air-con.
The 26th of July. Oh boy it is so hot. The wind is getting up now, so it looks like the predicted rain is on the way.
I had a pretty quiet morning - did a blog post, then more wool research. Still having trouble finding something appropriate, so I messaged the writer of the pattern for some suggestions.
After lunch, I went back to the gym because I could move quite freely again. The difference between the oppressive heat outside and the air conditioned gym was extreme. I would have gladly stayed all day for the air-con. So glad the only time I have ventured outside was the journey to and from Wyndley. Loads of teenage boys in today. Including the one that smells bad.
When I got back, my blocking mats and pins had arrived so I pinned out the doily from the other day, then Becky came over to receive birthday cards and presents. She told us about the wedding she and James had been to this week, and some of the children in her class next year and we are looking forward to hearing more about them. It doesn't sound like it will be as bad as this year. Hopefully.
The 27th of July.
I think today is the worst it has been. I have drunk so much iced water, I've had to refill two ice cube trays.
I was woken by the carpet fitters next door, although I thought it was the window cleaner so I didn't open my curtains until after I'd got dressed. I did very little this morning, apart from completely unravel the skirt I had made and paint my nails. It's really too warm for any proper activity.
This afternoon, I have sat with Dolly, although I'm not sure how much good it's done because she stayed asleep on the windowsill for the whole time. I watched some more of Zoo, so now I only have four episodes left. Get that finished this weekend. While I watched, I started work on a cardigan, using the wool from this morning. Hopefully I can turn it into something I will actually wear. Then I did some writing, finishing a piece that I've been thinking about for weeks, ready to go up on my transplant anniversary on Monday.
