Busy bee

Apologies for the lack of posts here over the last few days. My laptop is out of action, so I'm having to borrow Wayne's. I don't have access to any of my files or software, and it's driving me nuts. I don't really like Wayne's computer. The touchpad is weird - it's too close to the edge of the laptop, and I keep resting my hand on it, so the computer then does weird things. Also, it has an Intel Celeron processor - yuk! I much prefer my AMD Turion dual core processor, even if it does get a little hot on times.

On the subject of hot - I thought the warm weather was wonderful when it first arrived. Now, I'm just so sick of this stupid heatwave. I can't sleep because night time temperatures are so high. To add insult to injury, it's absolutely peeing down outside, yet it's really muggy, humid and oppressive. I really wish we could have an almighty great thunderstorm to cool everything right down. But it's not all bad. My strawberry plants, salad crops, flowers and herbs are having a whale of a time, and have put on an impressive spurt of lush growth almost overnight. I've put down organic-approved, pet-safe slug killer, so hopefully, none of that lush growth will get chomped by slimy little beggars.

Poor little Jake hates the heat. Luckily, I took him to the groomer last week, just before the weather really heated up, so his coat is nice and short now. Look:

Please click to enlarge, so you can see how gorgeous my boy is. I've been taking him to work with me at the Llys Nini Animal Centre, and he's a big hit up there, even if he does try to guard the office.

Oh well, that's all for now. Hopefully, I'll have my own laptop back soon, repaired and ready to go.

It's a great life if you don't weaken...:)
But seriously, I loathe humidity. The next few days are looking much cooler here.

I used to like hot days but the last week has not been nice at all.

Where I work has been 34c, totally oppressive and it's not nice seeing patients when you feel woozy from all that heat - if only we had air con!

Jake does look very cute, he must be great to have around!

I think Mabel might have appreciated a fur cut this week lol
