Fairly late on this Thursday evening before I get round to putting on a post. I can't think why because once I returned from my weekly hairdressing I haven't done much really - it has again been too warm and I have decided the sensible thing to do is 'go with it' not to walk round the estate, to drink plenty of water and take it easy. I can't say I have noticed any difference in how I feel yet - but it is early days. I did go round all my plants in pots and make sure they were not thirsty and the weather man this evening suggests we might get some of the South's rain up here over the next few days. The sky is looking suitably black at the moment - so I live in hope.
Covid has become a bit of a problem up here over the last week or two. I think the vaccination programme is going very well but there are suddenly thirty cases in the village next to where I live - I don't think anyone is desperately ill with it but it is still worrying.
Following watching the first installment of 'Hemingway' on television last week (it got five star reviews) and realising I had never read any of his books I sent for a couple and am now absolutely hooked on reading A Farewell to Arms, find it almost 'unputdownable'. If you haven't read it I do urge you to give it a go.
Another thing which has concerned me this week has been the state of Centre Court at Wimbledon. I have forgotten just how much that roof cost but know it wasn't put on for peanuts. So I can't help wondering why so many of the players are slipping about and in the case of Serena Williams I believe she had to withdraw (I'm sure somebody will correct me if I am wrong). I watched the Andy Murray match and he slipped and appeared to badly twist his knee. Luckily he seems to have recovered. (Go for it Andy)
Well sorry to have bitted and bobbed about tonight but it is the state my mind is in at present. Derek tells me to keep putting controversial posts on as he enjoys them. I do too, I love to get a good response that makes me want to gather you all in a nice room somewhere and have a good chat over a drink (yes there will be coffee available for anyone who doesn't want anything stronger) but my brain has got to be in gear to think of the right thing.
Oh and before I go I see they have located the woman who flapped the piece of cardboard in front of a rider in Le Tour (I think it said something like 'hello grandma and grandad'- in French of course) causing a huge crash.
See you tomorrow when I hope I shall be in a more calm and collected state of mind.
