Heat is across large parts of mainland Europe - set to get up into the forties over the next week - I just hope that John (Going Gently), who certainly needs and deserves a holiday, misses the over the top heat due to arrive in Spain.
Here the temperature this afternoon peaked at a measly thirteen degrees and it rained all day. I hardly dare say it but I succumbed at six o'clock this evening, after returned from a gruelling session at the Physiotherapists, to putting the thermostat on the central heating up to twenty - and it has been on all evening. Now, at a quarter to eleven, I am warm at last.
Why am I so late going to bed you may ask? My son bought himself a banjo today, brought it round and we have been playing banjo and ukulele duets. He has gone now and I need to get on a more even keel before I go to bed. At the moment I am having a bad attack of tinnitus, which has lasted since last Friday, and the duets have helped it not one little bit!
