LET ME SLEEP
It has been doing so for the past 10 minutes, so I imagine some individual is attempting to escape capture.
This is not a happy thought when the entire county has its windows wide open just in case there may be a wisp of breeze somewhere. (Some hope)!
Not a lover of hot weather at the best of times, I detest the soaking sticky hot nights which inevitably accompany high temperatures in July.
Leaving windows wide is an invitation to every flying, scurrying, creepy crawly in the world to try its luck at a nocturnal house-move.
My bedroom windows have already played host to the National Collection of whining, and probably stinging insects. I have evicted a spider, and am currently debating the means of doing the same to a rather sinister looking winged thing with a long body. Don't ask, I don't know.
I've turned my pillows over, moved to the other side of the bed, finally settled after an hour, into an uneasy snooze and now this!
It is still over the nearby rail line so I imagine they have someone in their sights, but why oh why can't the criminal fraternity be overcome by the heat like the rest of us?
I just hope the marauder is not in my garden. Still, if he is, he'll get caught up in the jungle-like undergrowth then perhaps we can all get some sleep.
