Today is dragging.... it's another glorious day and I should be out there enjoying it, but it so hot! There's no breeze and I'm still suffering from my previous sun burn. I've started to peel now too which looks unpleasant and shows off how stupid I was to go out for a day without any sun cream.
I have no energy for anything and I'm feeling ratty. I've done all the work that has been sent to me for the day already, I've read my fave blogs and scouted around for some more and I've collected the last of my avon money. Now I have nothing to do - well nothing that doesn't involve getting even hotter and rattier. I don't even have the energy to play any of my games.
I am concidering sacking everything in for the day and lounging in the back garden with my book and a cold drink. And sun cream! At least in my own back garden hardly anyone will see my scabbie peeling shoulder, and in admidst the general shite we have lying around the garden (old bits of table and shevling which were supposed to go to the tip when I still had a car big enough to shift them, but we never got round to it) my flacking skin will be the last thing the neighbours will bother raising an eyebrow too.
I'm into the last book in a serise of 5; Earths Children by Jean M Auel and it's brilliant. But I've got so attached to the characters that I am feeling loathed to finish this last book. It's a long time since I have been gripped by a book (well, serise of books) and I don't have anything of equal calibur to follow them *pout* I do have some V. C. Andrews books that Jacquie has bought me over the last couple of years, but I'm missing the first two in that serise so I don't feel inclinded to start reading them. The last ones I have are from the De Beers serise. I have got some horror backing up, a few Dean Koontz and the like but I'm not in the mood for horror right now. I want some thing a bit friendlier, maybe something sweet and silly like "The Undomestic Godess" that I read a couple of months back - not my normal stuff at all but Fay gave it to me when I told her I'd been baking etc.
I'm just waffling now for something to do. So I shall go and get myself some sun and some nice iced water, and read my book.
