What is your weather like? (2)

Thank goodness the heatwave is over, fed up with 34°, can't sleep when it's 30° in the bedroom. Yesterday was cloudy and today is sunny with a nice little breeze.

Have a good day out Obelixx, sounds as though there is lots to do near you.


I am mobile, thank you. The trapped nerve untrapped itself. Have been weeding but the phone kept ringing this morning so a bit of a late start. Sunny but not so hot, nice cool breeze.

What's happened? All I've got are little black squares with white crosses on them.

Obelixx, you asked about my scans. They weren't scans, they were X rays, this is what I posted "Went for X Rays this afternoon. Arthritis in right knee and bottom 3 vertebrae. A pinched something in hip, but need to see Doc for translation, all in French medical speak." I will see the Doc early next week, but it was just a pinched nerve, ouch, and arthritis.


Getting exciting DD. Let us know when you are open and we'll come for tea. If you want some perennials in autumn or spring I could split some for you.

Haven't read back yet, page keeps sticking.


What I would have said earlier if site had let me type - A tree had fallen on the fence in the top paddock - yet again! Had to replace a load of white electric ribbon and OH banged in a fence post. Horses now grazing there. I was surprised to see water in the pond after all this heat.


I looked at my emails at lunch time and I'd had one to say a French friend had died on the 21st and his funeral was at 3pm in the Cathedral. When you die in France they like you to be buried in 3 days. So we went. He was only 66. I didn't know his cancer was only diagnosed 4 months ago. I last saw him in April. It was a 2 hour Catholic Mass and lots of people were there.


When we got back everything needed watering and dinner needed cooking and eating. But it's been much cooler today, so more comfortable.


Now to read back.

Morning all.


My sister and OH's great niece are going to Glastonbury as helpers. Sister runs a lost children tent.


Much cooler this morning. Was 18° at 8.30am and cloudy. Shall go and inspect the horses' paddock and probably move them into the next one when I've checked the electric fences.

Wish I'd seen about Gardener's World being on tonight earlier. Managed to record half of it. I'll have to look for a repeat.

Internet has been a pain in the neck today.

Have picked more raspberries and broad beans and given raspberries to a friend who has given me eggs in return.

Went for X Rays this afternoon. Arthritis in right knee and bottom 3 vertebrae. A pinched something in hip, but need to see Doc for translation, all in French medical speak.

Been 34°, 30° in bedroom now, have opened the windows and put a fan in there now the temp has dropped a bit.

Lovely, Papi Jo, no wonder your open garden was a success. Thank you for your message on the Garden Visits thread.
