Engelbert Humperdinck and a heat haze of nothing.
Normally at this point in the day having not given it a single thought I can sit down and ad-lib an exciting and interesting story (OK maybe not) out of thin air, not that I am aware that the air is thin here, just normal regular air like the rest of the UK. But tonight I have sat down and well nothing, not a thought just a heat haze of nothing, the result of several days of having my brain fried by the sun. Yes it might be true that the solar panels on the roof have produced enough energy to heat the house for two years in the last couple of days, but that is not exactly what we wish to do right now. So here I am frazzled with a hot brain and unable to function normally.
Taken about fifteen minutes ago at the back of the house
YES it has finally gone PHEW
Taken at the front of the house this morning still pretending we are in the tropics
The only heartening thing was some cloud drifting over the sun about an hour ago so maybe it’s a sign, I am due to drum with my colleague tomorrow night all being well and top of the list is the rain rhythm. What is more worrying is the Cultural Olympian has also hit a mental block, well not at a personal level, I think he prefers hot to rain, he has not got fond memories of rain, or anything else as it happens but deep within the DNA of cardboard is a built in desire to avoid rain.
I did built a small obelisk for sweet peas to grow up, out of hazel pruned freshly out of the hedge, otherwise I spent most of the day complaining it was hot (just for a change). Several hot days, then Eurovision and then more heat is more than a normal mind can cope with. And if I see Engelbert Humperdinck standing on Buckingham palace playing air guitar next weekend then I am sorry but I will have to set the dog on him……… ……… AH the dog likes Engelbert Humperdinck, although mum has added IDIOT, she is referring to the dog not Engelbert Humperdinck.
OK I must try and do something constructive even if its only complain about the weather……. Have I told you all how hot it is…PHEW it is HOT.
