Too hot to do anything.

It is just too hot these past few days to do anything, i got up at 4.30 am today as i couldn't sleep and decided to try and clean up my garden & do some much needed weeding and planting, i was going to do it last night, but decided i would just have a lie down for half hour and then do it....Big mistake, i just went into a coma and couldn't bring myself to move after that......trouble was i had brought some plants from the garden centre on Friday and STILL hadn't put them in, so in all this heat the poor things were almost keeled over....i felt so guilty....but i have given them a good soak now and stood them in water and they are rewarding me with straight backs and healthy leaves and flowers again.
I will have to put them in tonight now as it is just too hot to do them this afternoon.

I have got to take Jimmy and some of his friends to Coventry today to see a band called "the Red Hot Chillie Peppers" ...as anyone heard of them ???...i am informed that they are famous, but i must be really old as i have never heard of them...but at least he is getting out now and doesn't seem as withdrawn as he was.... i think this time it may really be over with Polly...but you never can tell, i just wish they would either stay together or make a complete break as the wound is never allowed to heal when she keeps ringing him up all the time and he goes back for a week or two and then its all off again...and each time he is lost for a while......he's 30 now, but its strange when they are hurting they will ALWAYS be "our kids" won't they ?

I loved your picture of the Rose Kerry... i too love roses, was that one in your garden ?..... i especially love the scented ones, but there are not many of them about now, the real old fashioned scented ones that are intoxicating... (nowtheres a big word for a Sunday afternoon) !!!, i have one called " The Mayor of Casterbridge"...and it is wonderful i can smell it right down the garden...Gordon brought it for me the year before he died and it always reminds me of him... i do not know if you can get over there but if you can it is special.
I hope Howard is still doing well after his surgery and i think every day about your brother Mike Kerry... how is he.?

I am going now to have a shower and a cold beer as i am melting again, the heat in this country is so muggy and damp at this time of the year...some countries it is a dry heat and it is still bad but at least your not melting...i love the brightness of the sunshine it always cheers me up...but why does it come with its own damp as an added extra.
Talk soon Joy
