Just a Little bit Crazy Right Now Again

Yep, I am just a little bit mader than usual. But then aren’t we all now. My post covid low seems to have lifted a bit  now but I am still fatigued and a prone to low grade headaches too. Its pretty warm again today about 27C and I really can’t say I am used to yet either. I am finding it difficult to keep my exercise routine going as well.  The heat is wiping me out.  A bit of lasting fatigue that I can’t really shake.  Neck ache too. I start the day OK but then I get so tired. Its definitely post viral. But enough of that for now.  The landscape is so parched now locally. The trees planted two years ago look more than half dead and there is stil no prospect of real rain. It’s a massive downer to be honest.
Everything is just shriveling up including me somewhat. I have just been for a walk down to the Great Ouse at the time of writing this nice but sad to see how badly the wild flowers are doing though its better by the river of course.  And its very difficult to keep the flat cool. One must be totally disciplined about keeping the blinds down and so forth. An hour too late and you are totally screwed.  Don’t let anyone tell you global warming is not a thing. English summers use to be interspersed with a few jolly good soakings or perhaps that just my summer holiday memories. Brain fog really is a thing.  My energy is going up day by day though.

I also did a bit of music practice and started recording a new song today.  I am working at a snail’s pace though at present.  It’s going to be hot for a while and its a bit too toasty for me.  Strange to relate there is a cool breeze  blowing from somewhere today which is very welcome. 

Here’s a song from earlier in the year.

Washing up time

Don’t take it all too seriously, you may not come this way again.  I have always been trailer trash really.
Just call me ‘Blanche’  ….. Somebody turn down the heat please.

This coming winter is looking difficult. The increases for heat and light are more than a slight squeeze.  Hopefully we will just about be able to hack it at Chez  nous, but a lot of people are really going to suffer. It’s unfair and the government is really not taking it seriously enough. Where this is leading I dread to think.
But enough of winter. 

And whilst we are wishing, “Peace in Ukraine”.
