I have just watched the weather report on BBC Breakfast. The lovely Carol was showing the heatwave in Europe and telling holiday makers to be careful and aware of conditions that are potentially very dangerous.
I am green, with either envy or algae after all the rain that we are having.
Still rather wet than living in fear of wild fire. My brother is a fireman in WA and that is an ever present worry down under.
I had an early start today, wide awake before dawn and no inclination to sleep in me. The childs quilt self binding is now pressed and clipped in place ( love Clover wonder clips) and ready to hand sew.
I am taking a day off knitting as my neck and shoulders are a bit stiff and painful.
There are plenty of things clamouring for my time so eating chocolate and watching brain numbing telly is not on the agenda.
I have a parcel to wrap up, goodness only knows where the brown paper is, and get sent off to my sister. She fancies trying some patchwork and quilting and I am only to happy to send a pack of the basics. It is heartbreaking when you buy things for a new hobby only to find that you don't like it.
I don't think that I will be doing a long walk with Rufus again today although we did manage a half hour at 6:30 yesterday evening. It poured down again minutes after we got back home.
Dinner last night was a curry, tonight is undecided but will feature cauliflower and mushrooms. PING Lightbulb moment. I will marinade some thick slices of cauliflower and cook like steaks. Served with mushrooms and onion rings they will be just the job. I may cook some peas and/or broccoli as well, I like to see green on my plate.
That's all from me, nothing exciting to report. Just same old, same old, like most of us.
