Reclamation, oil & gouche on board, 1944John Tunnard
It has been a pleasant, relaxed day, today is the summer solstice not that you can notice that it is.
Sadly the weather is overcast, cool, grey with the strong possibility of rain, not at all hot, summery and the middle of summer.
Even the nights in the last couple of weeks have not been as nice and bright because it has been so overcast.
We did need the rain as this spring has been very dry; it got quite warm middle of April, beginning of May.
I was really hopeful that we were set for a gorgeous warm summer, we are still waiting, Easter was gorgeous, since then it has got cooler and damper.
Good for farmers, gardeners not so for the rest of us, I am longing to get outside again in a t-shirt like I did on 24th April.
Who knows it could still get warm again, as it did last year when it was also cool in June, then we had a huge temperature swing from 20 to 30 degrees literally overnight.
Tomorrow is the appointment with Annelies and Welzorg to discuss Ruud’s suggestions for further adaptations that are needed to the wheelchair seat.
Annelies is pregnant so it might be that we do not see her again before her pregnancy leave, so we have a wee present for her, some shower gel, shampoo and body lotion.
