Good morning all - a glorious morning here - the birds are singing their socks off - I think they appreciated the rain we had yesterday - it was a good gentle soak and everywhere feels much fresher for it.
It's going to get muggy today - before I go to work I'm going to make sure the tomatoes in pots on the terrace have got space for plenty of air to get between them - conditions will be right for blighty infections
A colleague was taken poorly the other day and I had to drive her home - when I got back to work I rang and suggested that she might be low on salt - she's got hypertension and has been following a low salt diet and has been drinking quite a bit of water in the heat - she had a packet of crisps and a few salted peanuts and recovered. GP confirmed my diagnosis Shall I set up shop and help the NHS out?
