It was so hot here yesterday, it has been for a while now… I know hot summers in the UK are something of a myth but they do actually happen. This is two or maybe three in a row now and we also had an exceptionally mild winter 2013/14… I can get used to this Mediterranean climate for sure and my plants are simply loving it.
We didn’t stay out long on our ma and son wander, I didn’t realise until about 2pm that I hadn’t slept the night before… my nocturnal habits are not waning… I just don’t feel tired much these days. I think I’m so full of goodness and so pumped on my exercise that sleep isn’t required to repair my body at the moment. Naps seem to do the trick.
I’m like a new born, I eat every 4 hours and take long naps and have yet to find a routine.
The heat and the lunch and the walking and the lack of sleep all put paid to my efforts to spend a whole day on the move and I didn’t want to let my son down so tried to soldier on. Eventually I told him I needed a slush to cure my unquenchable thirst and as we sat drinking them I admitted I was feeling like I needed to head home for a while.
I’ve never seen anyone so pleased, turned out he’d had friends texting him all morning with all manner of teenage boy activities on offer and he’d been kindly turning down requests for his company so he could be with me… awwwwww, he really is an angel, if ever he falls from grace it will be one almighty clatter.
So I dropped him off at the park to meet his mates and came home and put my feet up and the unquenchable thirst struck again.
I finally conquered it though… a delicious concoction of frozen berries and cherries thrown into the smoothie maker with some icy cranberry juice! Yummmmmy and super thirst busting at last! Look gross tastes delish and so much more refreshing than the slush I had out.
