Thursday 2nd-Sunday 5th July Overheating Issues!

Morning…what a hot night. I was tossing, turning, throwing the covers on and off and couldn’t tell if it was the weather or a menopausal issue! Today my new Reception class for September visit and the fan in my room might be my new best friend and never leave my side! I’m not talking about a child here, but an air cooler to aid my overheating body.


My son and girlfriend face timed us and their hotel is indeed a palace..chandeliers and marble staircases.

Egypt palace

It’s Friday. My back has gone after a terribly challenging day yesterday with the new children. I had to be driven home after my back went into spasm and I couldn’t move. Instead of attending an Inset day I am now having to dose up on painkillers and rest in bed. Good luck to my brother who moves from his nearly sea view, two bed flat in Southbourne to a three bedroom house with garden near Boscombe. It’s taken a very long time to complete, so hope it all goes well.

Being laid up in my bed has had it’s advantage today. as we managed to get a FREE black leatherette style three seater, two seater and arm chair from a local facebook site, as I spotted it quickly and husband got in first. I only thought there was one sofa but when husband went round to collect, there were two, so we’ve squeezed them in and were given the cushions as an extra.


It’s Saturday.I was just wondering if the sun and heat was causing a problem for my husband or perhaps forgetfulness is catching! I have just watched him walk downstairs in his boxers and a t-shirt. When I ask “are you intending to put on any shorts today?” the answer was “oh yes, I don’t seem to be wearing any, I forgot!” Thunderstorms and dodgy back kept me awake all night…back to sunny, but breezy this morning.

It’s Sunday. Son is full of how wonderful Egypt is and how very HOT it is! Rain here. Our kitchen floor is still concrete so yesterday we went to the Carpet Trade Centre in Basingstoke to have another look and ask for a second quote for Karndean flooring. It was a tricky place to find, but is apparently a lot cheaper than other places. so fingers crossed…he is coming round later this week to measure up and give us a quote.
