Because of the excessively warm weather I have not been able or inclined to do any work at all both indoors and out. My energy levels have been kept low as a result. My muscles don’t feel up to exertion for I am more used to working in lower temperatures. Anything I have been able to do has been done very early in the day before it began to get too warm. I have been wishing for a cooler period to enable me to do at least something and I have a couple of things waiting in the pipeline. It is Sunday on the first day of July and according to the weather forecast one of or the warmest day so far. We are to expect temperatures to reach 29 deg C here. It doesn’t feel that hot as I write this but hot enough for me to once more take a break. When will things change? I am not sure but it will be days before we begin to see it returning to a more sensible temperature, well sensible to me. I will be watching some more football today, two games, Spain vs Russia and later Denmark vs Croatia. Yesterday I watched Argentina get knocked out of the games by France and later Portugal being dismissed by Uruguay. I had favoured the two winning teams so I enjoyed seeing them win. The host nation Russia, might be eliminated by Spain who I also favour to win. As for Denmark and Croatia, it’s anyone’s game. These current matches are for places in the quarter-finals. I wager many of the teams playing will also be wishing for cooler weather as over there in Russia it has been even warmer and stickier than it has been here. Roll on Autumn eh? Perhaps not yet, let’s enjoy it whilst we can, both the weather and the respite from work!
