Good evening everyone!
I have been a bit quiet this week – well on the blog, Scope & social media anyway, as the hot weather has caused one or two faints and falls. The last one was worthy of an Oscar – flat on my back, double shoulder dislocations, shoulder & wrist and I think there might be a fracture in my hand, judging by the beautiful bruising and the pain. I know people will say I should go to A&E and hubby has threatened that he will take me if it doesn’t calm down…..but we zebras have high pain thresholds and I’m not sure I can face hospital. I did visit my GP last week, who told me off as I had self diagnosed the pain around my eye to be migraine related. She did point out that as an ENT/head and neck nurse in a previous life, it should have crossed my mind that I have a sinus infection – so I came away with antibiotics and finally some iron, for an ever decreasing haemoglobin. Six more pills a day to add my collection!
The lovely girl is having a great holiday and a week in we miss her more than she misses us – but don’t tell her, whilst the politics student returned from his music festival tired, smelly and very sun burnt!! They did manage to purchase a tent on arrival in Barcelona last week, but I think it was too hot to sleep in it, he had his money stolen by the second day and then at the end of the festival they were thrown off the campsite as their coach and flight weren’t until the next day. So where do you sleep with your mates aged 19? You got it, the beach!! Apparently an irate Spanish deckchair attendant is a wonderful alarm call at 7.30am……now he needs to get back on track, earn some money and find somewhere to stay in Nottingham when he takes his exams next month (missed due to illness!). Sometimes they might be officially adults, but I suspect that really there is a little boy lurking inside the body of a lanky man!
So onto some blogs for you and I hope that you will enjoy the summery feel to several of them. Whilst the oppressive heat might have broken here in the UK and the gardens are loving some long overdue rain, I think we can still enjoy the strawberry tequila cocktail, the fashion tips and the suggestions for coping with the heat!
Grab a drink, sit back and enjoy!
