I too am sorry to hear about rik mayall dying. My type of humour.....such a funny guy.
Hmmmmm! About the sun. It's all true folks. We do seem to avoid the rain........just having light rain now and boy do we need it? But it won't amount to much and dry weather is forecast . St Ives Bay ....I'm in that zone......often misses worst of rain yet a mile away there can be a thunderstorm. So, sorry again folks, hand on heart, it's been a very warm day. Little bit cloudy but so humid, hot. (help me out here folks on Cornish coast)
This morning got roped into helping a friend with her garden. Firstly cut about half an acre of grass, weeds, nettles, etc. sweating......er, perspiring ......like a tap. Bloomin hard work. This after I had to remove junk entwined in the blades that someone else caused. And after her garage door was jammed by a bolt that slipped down. After some silent curses, bruised hands and cut fingers I managed to get the flipping thing open. Like I said, it was hot. Then she offered my a cuppa. A cuppa??? Lager I begged. Anyway a Guinness was delivered then a second so life improved
Picked up a large, superb specimen of hosta Gold Standard for a fiver. Straight in a terracotta pot on my return. Delighted with that.
Took my mum for a drive and an ice cream and then a push on promenade at Penzance. Bit cooler but still warm. Cornish ice for my mum with choc flake but a double, double coconut and cherry for me.
Still pretty tired from my exertions this morning......it's ok, folks I think I'll survive but if I don't I give my gold standard hosta to..........................
