I wished for sunshine and my goodness do we have sunshine! We also all have horrible Summer colds, all of us including my parents. These are not just sniffly little colds, these are relentless coughing, rib aching, head aching, asthmatic, nastiness! To top it all I have head to toe, itchy, prickly heat rash! Do remind me next year when I am wishing for sunshine! The only thing cheering me up is my box of Union Jack tissues! (I also have special Jubilee limited edition 'Loo roll'! Yep this Jubilee fever is reaching . . . . well. . . .reaching erm. . . .well. . . .fever pitch. I have Jubilee Jam, Jubilee Marmalade, Jubilee Clothes, I had to stop myself buying a mask of the Queen yesterday, I am regretting it though! Currently Britain seems to be just about Jubileeing whatever it can! I may muster up the energy to put bunting in the garden today. . . I may not though! I have still managed to lose weight this week but have struggled to find the energy to exercise. We cancelled swimming due to ill health. It has been too hot to walk the dog during the day I did take her yesterday morning. The air was thick with fluff, some sort of pollen, I really had to motivate my self to plod around the local pond, then meadows and then through an 'Arboretum'. The dog had the most fantastic time and was very happy chewing branches and chasing squirrels. I felt grotty. I forgot to take my camera. The wild flowers are pretty right now and the sunshine enhances everything. The birdsong was lovely, (I tried hard to feel uplifted)! I even stopped and 'hugged' a couple of trees, well I gave them a little pat! I took a shine to a rather nice Horse Chestnut Tree.
I have another observation at work on Tuesday so I have time consuming work work to do! If the postman delivers some books I have been waiting for, 'work' could involve reading in the garden with a sunhat on! Life could be worse. I also break up this week for a weeks holiday! Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I hope you are having a great weekend :) xxx
