First and foremost, and most exciting of all, is the news that DS. and FDiL. have got engaged. They were in Paris for the weekend, spending time with FDiL's pen pal when DS. popped the question. Exciting times ahead!!
Driving home yesterday, after a massage, the temperature on the car thermostat (after it had cooled down from 36C) finally registered 32C. That was far hotter than predicted. Mind you, as my massage lady had moved out of her working premises to a log cabin at her home, it was very hot in there as well. Made for an interesting massage cum sauna!
The predicted thunderstorms arrived here around 04:30 and the garden has been sucking it up ever since. Our water butts are currently half full again with more rain to come.
Outside our dining room window, is this beautiful hydrangea. It was wilting yesterday but looks lovely now.
