We Brits are not used to this wall to wall sunshine, temperatures in the high 20's (don't laugh you foreigners) and the heatwave continues!
Today I actually broke into a sweat without even trying. Well in my condition I can't do anything that would normally bring me anywhere near perspiring.
On that note I should quickly mention that I saw the surgeon last week and he put me on the urgent list for an operation on my back. I have since had a letter confirming a date on the second of September.
With my typical kind of luck, I suppose the weather will remain nice and sunny during these school holidays while I am more or less a prisoner in my own home, surrounded by an ever increasing number of shouting screaming kids. By the time I have recovered from my op it will be autumn or winter and the summer will have passed me by.
I guess though - fingers crossed that I make a good recovery - we could get on a plane and seek out the sun and for ourselves, then in that way the heatwave for us at least, will continue.
