So far so good, I am only testing every other day but I was alright yesterday. This morning, after my carer had gone, I went to sleep and slept all morning in my chair. I have no symptoms - no throat, no headache, nothing - just very tired. I have made myself be a bit more active this afternoon.
It seems as though we might have had a very wet night because there were great puddles of water in the road this morning and everywhere looked wet - we can certainly do with it - as much as anything to wet the ground enough to discourage wild fires breaking out. Plants and lawns desperately needing water is one thing but farmers needs and wild fires are in an altogether different league.
England's Ladies are playing Sweden in the Football semi-final tonight. I shalln't watch it. That kind of tension is too much these days for my fragile frame to bear. I shall watch for the result on the ten o'clock News bulletin.
I have never planted Antirrhinums in my garden. From somewhere they have seeded themselves. Now they do it every Summer and they are haphazardly dotted about all over the garden. At first they were all yellow. Then they were yellow and a few dark red. This year there are also some pale salmon pink ones as though the colours have mixed on a palette. And I welcome them freely and wonder what colour will emerge next. Thought I might run a sweepstake on it! (if I am still here next summer!)
Also in the garden the crocosmia (montbretia as was) are out. I have four different ones - three red and one yellow - the yellow one nothing like as rampant. They remind me of my childhood - it grew like a weed in our garden. Talk about being a reliable plant.
Until tomorrow friends.
