Four pm and I haven’t stepped out the door all day — hot and humid weather, yet again I’m lying on the couch reading my cousin’s novels.

Eight pm and I head out for the evening….

Ten pm and I’m home gain. Three cheap pints while sitting in the evening sun and I decided I’m just not in the mood to go out alone on a Friday night. Instead I sat around the house feeling melancholy and thinking about the nine days until I’m home again.

Oof, I just saw the evening weather report! 32 °C here in the South and 37 °C in Cheltenham — lucky Mike!. No wonder I thought it was warm today!
