Things are heating up a bit around here - yesterday was hot and today will be hotter, and right there in the middle was last night, which was unbearably humid, so I didn't sleep a wink.
However, having the doors and windows open and the garden seat cushions out is good. Summer! The sun umbrella will also have an outing later. And, going to a BBQ this evening with loads of friends (visiting children from Canada are a great reason for BBQs!) should be excellent, without the need for 47 layers of clothing and a fire roaring in the fireplace.
Yes. I know. Ridiculous. I have no idea what happened, but I think I twisted my foot, and fell forwards down the steps and onto the tarred drive, rolling onto my back as I did. Wearing a skirt. You have no idea how elegant I looked. I live to entertain the neighbourhood. Thankfully, unlike a couple of weeks ago, I managed to protect the bad leg and land on the good one. So now I have no good legs. Just wonky ones.
So there I sat with blood dripping off elbows and knees, totally bemused - what the heck just happened???
Anyway. It took a while to get up, get cleaned and get the drips to stop. And you know what just came through the letterbox? A leaflet advertising zimmer frames, mobility scooters, and other such delights like sticks and wheelchairs.
I think I am just going to go and sit in the garden and do nothing. Providing I can get out the door without falling on my face.
