Hello and good morning.
It’s another warm and humid day on the East coast though we do have rain forecast for sometime later today.
We had fireworks at 10pm last night which we had been expecting at 9pm. This is the ‘Summer treat’ for visitors, and lasts for about 10 minutes, always finishing with a pop-pop-popopopop so residents know it’s over!
Hubby had another interrupted night but did manage to get some sleep, though ended up in the lounge. I was restless, too hot, cramp in my legs and feet, then I got too cold and needed a wee! Old age sucks. I still couldn’t settle so got the suduku book out and was doing those until 4.30. I slept until 6, then went back to sleep until around 8.30.
We both had showers, which is just as well as our water pressure has dropped off again so I’ve raised a job with the water board. They had been working in the area but work was completed at 10am, so this is something new. Our neighbours have low pressure too, so it’s a local issue, not us. There is a lot of repair work going on here but the water board is usually very good and on it in a couple of hours, if not immediately in the case of water leaks. I’ve got a job number in case there’s any change and someone should be with us within 24 hours.
Picture: with Kela in July, just how we like it!
We’ve been out for a walk along the prom and it wasn’t too busy. I guess this was because it was cloudy and bit breezy, though there were some brave souls up to their knees in the water. It was very pleasant as we could keep our distance from everyone and didn’t have to rush which was good as Hubby appears to have twisted his knee in his sleep again.
It’s been a positive day though as I’ve lost 2 lbs! Don’t ask me how as I know it’s nothing to do with the naughty cakes we had last week, and I did read the scales right. Hopefully I can keep on track now as things had gone a little ‘south’.
Breakfast was a slice of melon with some cinnamon, and lunch today is a spaghetti bolognese which I shall begin making shortly.
The blood pressure was also good at 128 over 76.
