Another very hot day with a lack of air.   I have not attempted to take Tess for a walk today as if I do she lies down every few yards to recover, so I figure she is best left quietly to rest.

I had an afternoon playing ukuleles with the group and we had a jolly time. For getting together with other people there really is no better way than playing music together. 

Since coming home I have done very little - it seems airless and movement of any kind is an effort.   No boxes packed today.

Events at Finsbury Park I find so distressing.   Why can't we all live together in peace and harmony and respect one another's way of life and religion?   Is it so very difficult?

Events this year so far have really made it a dreadful year as catastrophe after catastrophe heaps up - not just here but throughout the world. 
Where will it all end.

I have to agree with you about it being a dreadful year.
I can't bear to look at the news for fear of yet another catastrophe. But, yet, I find myself drawn to it again and again. I keep hoping to see some wonderfully positive things happening.
I hope the weather cools off so you and Tess can take a pleasant walk!

I'm frightened to turn the news on in the mornings now, just waiting for the next horror story. Hot weather is not good for dog walking is it!

Yes, Weave, this has been a horrid year. Onward and upward. as they say.

I have a view but I also know that life goes on at home and we still laugh here. It is like when war was declared in 1939, it was in the middle of harvest.

The only news these days seems to be of the bad or absolutely dreadful variety.

I have to say I know how Tess feels - it's too hot for me and I was soon dripping with perspiration today whenever I tried to do anything in the garden - I had bought some Marigolds on offer in B&Q (£1 a tray) and I planted them up in planters to go in the greenhouse to encourage pollination. I am glad that at least the house is cool - we have very thick stone walls.

It is important to hold on to what is good in life as very often that will continue.xxx

It has been a tragic year, I don't understand my world any more.

" I had an afternoon playing ukuleles"
The best line ever today!

The Chinese year of the Rooster must be accurate. It called for catastrophes the world over. Going to start paying more attention to the Chinese zodiac. I am a rabbit and it describes me to a T. Sounds like a day to sit with a fan.

Typical British, a couple of hot days and people are saying it's all too much, that's after enduring a long cold Spring - short memories! It was 32 degrees here in Kent today, it was great and when I took my dog out this morning it was cool and slightly misty because I didn't wait till it was hot and steamy.

We've had incredibly toasty weather here as well (although I guess for us it's sort of just par for the course). A trip to the beach cools one down, fortunately.

I'd say I were shocked to read about what happened in Finsbury Park, and area of LDN I enjoy visiting, but I'd be fibbing. This sort of thing is becoming all too common place.

Thanks for the comments. Rachel makes a good point. Things go on as they always have done. Perhaps we get too much news thrown at us - any kind of terrorism thrives on news coverage.

Or rather the media thrive on IT.
