Hi all, down under another kilo mark so very happy. Although looking at it in pounds it has hardly made any difference. I will continue as I am so glad I didn’t give in last night so just tonight to get through. I never bother about a drink during the week but when the weekend comes it is like a little treat but I can go without. This will be 2 weeks so almost a dry July.
I agree Arctic, the weather situation has a lot more effects than just being too hot or sunburn. In France a lot of people are aware of self sufficiency and preserving water etc although I doubt the Parisians (and other townies) really give a monkeys or even know. There might also be another reason, if there is a shortage then the farmers want more money (and they deserve it) so the supermarkets rebel by refusing to pay and therefore, no milk. Besides foods we have to be very careful about water as I can see that being a big cause of conflict. Although there are water restrictions all around us, in our small area there are none. That doesn’t mean we go mad and we now have 4 water butts all around the garden which are doing fine for now. Now all the gardeners have gone I can sort out my little planter. I have plenty of land but as our house was built on a farmers field growing maize and it is mainly clay, it can be like digging concrete so my planters are just 2 small raised beds with debris in the bottom and fresh soil on top. Not sure what I am going to put in yet, possibly some soft herbs to start with. Any ideas Arctic.
Had a nice relaxing swim yesterday and might have one later today. Not too hot at around 26. Have a good Sunday.
