Quiet on here yesterday: we are missing OG and her input. LOL! AQ, re the ice comment! Sunny here but pleasant. Everyone you see seems much happier, except a woman in the front of me in the Aldi queue yesterday, when I popped in for milk - "I love the heat!" she announced. I thought, well you're on your own, there..... My OH has renewed some insurance over the phone, and then gone off to the allotment. He looks better today but its no good asking him how he's feeling, as he's one of the "Don't complain" brigade and might only mutter. I feel much better myself and am hoping for normality by the time I've had my second cup of tea today. (Incidentally, for those not in UK, last Tuesday has been announced as the hottest day so far this year. Most places had about 30 degrees in the shade.)

Limpy and I would be very hard to kidnap, then!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
LINDA – We have heat-lovers here too. On the hottest days everyone in our street closes windows except one lady who has the hot wind blowing heat & dust inside.
Our state had no new covid cases yesterday and our lockdown will end 12.01 am tomorrow (Wed), changing to Level 3 restrictions for at least next week. My shopping list of forgotten items ready & waiting! I shall defer camera outings & lunches (School-Friend & I had to cancel yesterday’s lunch). Victoria will end their lockdown too but NSW numbers continue to rise.
