Yes, I have been to see my doctor this morning and he thinks my 'attack' was probably a faint in the hot weather. He advised me to up my liquid intake and said I could drive as long as I didn't go too far. Good news indeed.
After the almost unbearable hot weather we had a pouring wet day on Saturday and a few showers yesterday. When I went out this morning to water and feed my pots they were absolutely bone dry, so I must keep up the watering. Luckily the really heavy rain has filled my water butt to the brim so at least I am not having to use mains water. Today it is sunny but there is a sharp wind blowing from the west so it is quite bearable typical English Summer weather again.
Because I walk Tess morning, lunch time and evening on most days, everyone around knows me so that wherever I go people speak. It is so nice. This morning, unsure whether I could drive or not, the lady who cleans for me ran me to the doctor's on her way home and my son promised to collect me. As I sat waiting on a seat at the Medical Centre a lady offered me a lift home. When I asked how she knew where I lived she said I passed her house every morning with Tess so she knew I lived along the road somewhere. A dog is a good defining feature. And what a neighbourly road I live on.
Cup of tea time calls - doctor says I must drink more - so until tomorrow ---
