Cor blimey, we are having a bloody good summer thus far.
Good in the sense as in "its not raining".
Bad in the sense that you feel like you have to shower 40 times a day to stay fresh, drink what feels like the entire contents of a swimming pool (hell yeah, including people!) to keep cool and lay in bed without a stitch of clothing on and hoping that there is no call to evacuate the house in the early hours of the morning; thus scaring all the neighbours to death or worse, being harpooned because the RSPCA thought I was a beached whale.
This poor thing cannot get comfy. He sprawls all over the cool laminate flooring or in dark corners of any room to try and take respite in a less sticky spot. He gives us such pitiful looks and other than bathing in him luke warm water or putting ice cubes in his water bowl ...... whats the Wiseman family to do?
Mum, help me...Im so hotIm wilting, look........I can't cope, Im going to sleep it off with the fan blowing in my direction and hope to wake up to rain!
Today has been great. We went to town with belle to buy her a new book. Mark was desperate for a new pair of jeans and I just wanted to mooch. Before we went though, I had a quick card to make to give to Ellies sleep over buddy, Beth. Beth and Ellie were as good as gold last night, I didnt even know I had two teenagers in the house.
We gave Beth a handful of craft supplies (crafting is her favourite thing; wish that would rub off on Ellie!) and she loved her card. This was really quick to make and is a template for future last minute heart attack cards that I all too often find myself doing!
Before I go, I just wanted to wish my American friends a happy 4OJ xx
