It is hot here today (already 33°c/92°F) and it was hot all day yesterday and last night too, hence the lateness of this post. After a day working out in the garden my brain was nothing but cooked mush and unable to do anything other than direct me back to the fridge for yet another cool drink.
How lucky are we that we have fridges filled with cool drinks, and, in the case of the kids, a freezer full of icy poles.
Of course they had little to complain of. The boys spent the afternoon out in the shade with a large bowl of water trying to design a Lego boat that would float weighted down with heavy artillery. Judging by the amount of water on the grass afterwards their plans changed to submarines and doing battle!
Look at this hardworking wheat farmer from 1934. I’m whingeing because I had to walk all the way to the fridge for my next bit of refreshment, and a cold shower awaited me once I finished my self-imposed jobs.
I think this bloke had a little more hard work to do than I did, and had no chance to pack it in once he got bored in order to put his feet up and watch telly in front of the fan… We have it so easy, don’t we?
