So after the rare excursion into Salisbury on Tuesday, I did my regular drop-in yesterday up at the hospital. Of course, I looked again at my number of steps: 5000, only half as much as Tuesday, but still quite significant for me these days. Most of those steps were walking between the house and the bus stop, and of course the heat too is swelterig at the moment. No respite from the sun. And at the hospital, where it is always mega-hot anyway, I saw lots of electric fans.
But after two "active" days, I'm now looking forward to a few more restful ones. I haven't even bothered to put my watch on yet today, so I can confidently say that the number of steps so far today is zero!
So, quiet days planned. There are a few things I'd like to get on with. I'd like to get one of my bikes out (I'll get the thing out OK, but there's a high probability I won't be able to ride it) and, I bought a weatherstation a couple of months ago which is still in its box. I have a pole to stick it on, but I need to cut a small groove into the pole, to stop the station from moving around. Then, of course, I need to align the thing toward north, just so it can give a vaguely accurate wind direction, but that should be easy enough. But maybe, just maybe, it is too hot for all that?
