Scrimshank ((v.) to avoid one’s obligations/duties; to shirk)
Torporific (n.)) causing lethargy)
Think I’ve done a little bit of a Scrimshank as I’m late responding to this.
It’s been quite an operation reviewing mail, housework, walking the dog, shopping and blogging, this torporific heat leaving us all irritable and the poor dog constantly panting.
The potatoes have given up the ghost in the veg patch outside. Methinks they have roasted in the clay soil, so harvesting any is negligible, not that my food larder is bare.
Not wishing to malign anyone, but some are martyrs to the cause, religiously watering their gardens with the latest in sprinkler systems. Not us, we have a hose and be done with it. It’s not as if we’re likely to become cellmates with offenders during a hosepipe ban as we have a Get Out of Jail free card under the guise of a Blue Badge, not that there’s a ban here yet anyway.
