It’s another scorcher. I was awake at 5.30. but managed to get back to sleep after a restless night watching the clock at 45 minute intervals until around 3. The heat is too much for me, and I am flagging within a couple of hours.
I did the washing this morning, then after breakfast and putting it out, went up the road to do a little shopping………….. and wish I hadn’t.
Just gone 9.30 and it was manic, drivers coming at you from all directions, and nobody giving an inch. Nowhere to park, though I was lucky and as I was waiting for a car to pass me coming the other way, someone moved out. Couldn’t get what I wanted in that shop though.
On to the supermarket, and they had three deliveries in. Again nowhere to park, and I had to go round twice before I found somewhere, then nearly got carved up in the process.
Inside it was bedlam. The foyer and shop floor were filthy, and stocks already depleted. They are doing their usual summer trick by only stocking the more expensive packs of dry goods like pasta and rice. I got the last two yogurts I like, the fresh fruit was going fast, though I did get strawberries, grapes, 2 kiwis and bananas. I also got some tomatoes to go with my prawns today. My neighbour brought round a little gem lettuce this morning, nothing like freshly picked and fond memories of picking apples for crumbles and sauce, and lemons in NZ for G&Ts.
Hubby is still resting up, and getting more crotchety by the hour. He hates being ‘idle’, even more so as I have to do most of the work at the moment, not that I mind.
So, we’re in for another quiet day of sweating it out and hoping for rain.
Hope you’re all having a good day though. Take care and keep safe.
