Yesterday I spent the morning volunteering in the local Hospice shop and walked home in the hot sun to find the tree surgeons had managed to take down the dodgy Ash tree and were just tidying up. I didn’t envy them working in that heat. P said the nosey neighbour's curtains were twitching a fair bit. We are anticipating another visit from Mr Snoopy with his notebook on Sunday morning.
Today I walked to the library first thing and did my shopping early. It was still an effort walking back with the full shopping bags and I have spent the rest of the day in the cool of the house. These thick stone walls are a godsend. We are "only" at 27-28C here and I can only imagine what everyone is feeling in the sweltering heat across the water.
Tomorrow sees the IOM Marathon take place and P will be going to help out. He is not taking part thank goodness. I am not sure it is a good idea to run a marathon in that heat on a route with hardly any shade.
I shall stay at home and consume lots of iced tea.
