Last week, this week, sorry I’m late (42.20)

I’m a little bit late catching up on last week. I was on holiday, and it took me a little longer to get my thoughts in order when I got home. This ad is old news now; I think they have been pulled when public reaction went so strongly against them. It’s so wrong in… Continue reading Last week, this week, sorry I’m late (42.20)

The end (of summer) is nigh (38.20)

I'm finish this week with a small sense of panic building. We've been spoilt for so long with mild weather, and this weekend it was still possible to sit out in a t-shirt and shorts.

The thunderstorm on Thursday night may have interrupted my sleep a little bit, but as it brought the temperature down I didn't mind so much, and when it was done, it was cool enough to sleep. My cat was not very happy during the heatwave. He had pretty much stopped eating and we were having… Continue reading 33.20 – the heatwave breaks

32.20 – the heat goes on

This week's sleep: Noctus interruptus. It's been a difficult time for sleeping over the past week. Last Friday night it was Eid fireworks at 11.30pm, followed by a helicopter hovering for an hour at 3.30am; Saturday night there was some kind of altercation further down our street and a window was smashed, with more arguing… Continue reading 32.20 – the heat goes on
