After my sudden unexpected fall the other day, a fall which was totally unexplained, I have decided not to drive my car again until I have consulted the doctor in case it turns out to be a T I A. I know how common they are in older people. I must get to know the bus service into town (there is a stop at the end of my road) - I already have my Bus Pass but have never used it. Also there are several good taxi firms in town so it would be easy to use them too. I have rarely gone further in my car than into town for a long time now, so it will not be too much of an inconvenience once I get used to it. I would never be able to forgive myself if I had one while driving (they are usually only momentary).
On a happier note - for about an hour this evening we have had quite heavy rain. We really need it to rain heavily all night as we are really desperate in our gardens,but even a couple of hours is better than all the watering with a can and there are still enormous black clouds overhead so hopefully a bit more to come before next week's threatened heat wave.
This week end is our forties week end here in the town, when ladies and gentlemen take over the town in their military uniforms (always officers strangely enough) - we have ATS girls, WAAFs, Yanks, Army, Navy and Air force personnel, Air Raid Wardens, Nursing Auxiliaries - you name it; they are an enthusiastic bunch and stall holders abound to sell them new items of gear and clothing. So I hope it rains overnight and then clears for the weekend as it promises. Next week promises a gigantic heat wave. I can do without that, I am not a hot weather person.
Lunch today as usual and we both had the same - salmon, fennel and saute potatoes in a butter sauce. I have had no appetite all week but it is slowly coming back and I really enjoyed my lunch.
