Quite a week

A week when temperatures in this dry neck of the woods have reached the sizzling level of 37 degrees.

After a few days of barely being able to move without being drenched in sweat, aware of smelling less than fragrant (even five minutes after a shower) and when trying and failing to cool my hot little house I am praying for rain and COOL.

How anyone can actually enjoy this sort of weather totally defeats me.

Add to that the acquisition of a new Prime Minister and cabinet with all that that implies and we have a page for the history books.

It has been a week for all the 'dark horses' to come galloping out of the shadows to joust for their places in the political circus.

The new ringmaster fills me with dread and fear for the future of this battered country.

Words have been spoken which might encourage hope in anyone less cynical than I, but, words are the easy part, what follows will decide our future position on the world stage as well as in our own country.

Boris and his Greek chorus have the unenviable task of seeing Brexit through to the end, with the risk of  leading us out of Europe without any form of agreement being reached.

It will be interesting (and terrifying) to see how the UK looks in November.


  1. It's good to know someone has noticed Jean. The heat has all but finished me off, but mercifully it is cooler and there is some rain today so head above the parapet again.

  2. It is a bit cooler now, Ray. That Thursday was unbearable! New blog for me, but unlikely to be kept regularly.

  3. Welcome back Sue. Yes it is cooler thank heaven.
    Today we have some rain and very welcome it is too.
    As for your blog, whenever you feel able to post you will be welcomed by old and new friends.
    Have I slightly overdone the use of 'welcome' do you think?
