    It was 34 I think that’s why I feel chilly, still got shorts on and the door open though!

    It was overcast this morning and cooler. We also had a few drops of rain but it wasn’t enough to wet the soil and this afternoon the sun came out and it is lovely now with a slight breeze.
    We could really do with the ground having a good soaking but it doesn’t look likely over the next few days.
    Apart from that wet Sunday a couple of weeks ago, we’ve had no rain since before I went to Launde Abbey in the middle of June. The showers seem to pass us by.

    I feel so much better now its cooler. One foot is still swollen but at least I have managed to get velcro fastening shoes on again. The skin soreness has eased.

    The garden has been well and truly watered so no worry about new plants.

    Its Folk Week in Broadstairs so I hope it stays dry for the visitors and the traders. I hope to be attending during the week.

    This afternoon I'm going to see Mama Mia! Here we go again. I'm sure I`ll be singing ABBA songs in my sleep. :)

    Thanks Izzy. I`ll be making it part of my exercise. ;)

    I saw the west end show Mama Mia in 2010 with Helen33 , BeckyJan and Gigi It was the first time we met up and we were all at different stages of caring. It was the first time Dhiren had been in respite care and I was a wreck.

    The show gave me a few hours of joy before the anxiety returned.
    For what its worth, He was absolutely fine.

    I have a feeling that Bill and I were in London just after you and we went to see it too. I seem to remember you all telling me about it and me sharing how we had found it. I think that was then anyway. I do know I had a hard time keeping Bill in his seat!

    Have a lovely time.

    I've always envied Izzy's skyscapes but am never up early enough for mine. I had to post this one. It was even better in real life.
