Just watching the Anniversary Games on TV. I can’t believe it’s nearly a year since this: Paralympics
Yay! Summer holidays. Not that I’m going anywhere (well, I’ll be going to Yorkshire, hardly some tropical island, but I love it, I’ll post pictures of the third peak, don’t worry), but I still love the holidays.
And we’re having a heatwave, but wait a minute, what is this?…
Haven’t seen those white things for a while.
But they’re not spoiling anything.
I’ve been sitting in my garden, pretending to be on holiday, which means doing – well – nothing. That’s what people do on holiday isn’t it?
Having a fantastic time.
Check out the cakes a student gave me:
Just off to enjoy one while watching the proms (another great summer tradition).
Last night’s prom was a delight. I love most instruments, but I have to admit that I think the piano is probably my all time favourite one.
The pianist yesterday was superbe, and, as the BBC proms tweeted – you could hear a pin drop when he played his encore.
I’ve found a version of it here. See what you think…
My hours have been cut down at work, meaning that I’ve actually had five days off in a row! Of course, I haven’t done very much, but I did manage to finish reading my book. Sitting outside for hours on end reading, seems so decadent, but I did enjoy it. Forgot to take a picture of the book (actually it’s on my Kindle, but still forgot to record the image.)
I did get a picture of the cup of water, though, (I know, I know, this is riveting stuff!)
Fancy a New York related video?
