There is no end to this hotness. I must say, it saves on the washing because around the house I wear minimum clothes. I feel sorry for the people caught up in the fires in Greece, everyone is desperate for rain at the moment. I haven't heard any more about the fires in Yorkshire here in the UK, so I presume they must have got them under control. There are some very brave people working for the emergency services in appalling conditions all over the world.
Yesterday morning I presented my talk to the members of Probus (Professional and Business) people, in the local pub. I was pleased to see that Bob, our very helpful newcomer in the village, brought Geoff with him, our 90 something well regarded war veteran.
Seemed strange to start the week with that, I had to give the Crafty Club a miss. We started off with coffee and cake, good start, the gentlemen, (yes all men), were all ears as I rattled on about my brilliant life on a pension. I skipped past a lot of arts and crafts, men are not interested in sewing, and told them about my money saving tips, the summerhouse, and my walking trips.
It all went down very well, and I was asked if I could go back at a later date with more stories. As time was limited, I can never get everything into a 45 minutes slot, it would be a good idea to go back to fill in the gaps. I could probably split the topics up into three or four separate talks, looking more closely at each one.
No more talks booked at the moment, but you never know, the phone might ring, or an email might appear. I don't go looking for bookings, I'll do them if I am asked, and available. I don't need to do more, it's just a hobby.
Looks like another hot one today. My walking is done later on at night, it's still hot at 9pm, but it's impossible to walk earlier, I would rather stay in the shade.
Next job, framing a picture. ilona
