When I got up yesterday morning, it was still stiflingly hot indoors, especially upstairs. However, when we went shopping around 9 am, it was noticeably cooler outside, certainly much cooler than inside the house. Having most of the windows open all day and a strong breeze blowing did cool the house down a lot by the afternoon. We had a few very brief showers during the day, but not enough to perk the garden up.
Both the top up shopping and the fuel husband put in the car have gone up again. It's getting totally ridiculous, as well as concerning - when is it ever going to stop? I dread to think how much our energy bill and heating oil are going to cost during the coming winter. Fortunately, we're able to cope alright currently, I don't know how long that will last if prices keep going up the way they are though.
By late afternoon I felt decidedly unwell - in fact I have done for 2 or 3 days. Covid levels are rising again, apparently, so I did a test - negative thankfully. I suppose it could just be the heat of the past few days - I don't cope well with heat, and especially humidity, at all. Or maybe a virus, I don't know. I went to bed early anyway. Not feeling much better this morning.
I'd made a meatloaf yesterday, to have with salad and home grown new potatoes for dinner. I only had a small portion as I didn't feel hungry at all. Husband pronounced the meatloaf "very nice, very beefy". It was lamb, mint and apricot actually.....😒
