Heave Ho Yonghy Bonghy Bo

The hottest day of the year and father and youngest son decided to rig the dinghy in a field. Well it was the first time and they did not want spectators which as it turned out was a good thing.

Feeling Old

This week sees the start of the world famous Glastonbury music festival just 1hours drive away. This has taken place for 40 years and I have never been .Each year I wish I had made the effort not for the music but just to soak up all the energy of 180,000 people . But I know that if I did ever get there my main concern would be the loos . As I suffer with IBS I know that Glastonbury is but a dream .
This year instead of the usual mud the crowds have to cope with high temperatures. We are a strange nation obsessed with the weather we are lucky we rarely have extremes but we still complain if its too hot/too windy/too wet/too dry/too cold . (and yes I am one of those who complain ) .And then I see the pictures of other countries with hurricanes/tornadoes/monsoons/forest fires the list goes on and on and I am ashamed of myself.
I think as we get older it is important to keep a young mind I thought I was doing quite well but lately I have been feeling old. This worries me because you can so easily get into the trap of not bothering. I am going to Bristol this weekend only 20 Min's away But I have not been for months I just cannot be bothered , I used to go every week.

I will add photos of Boxcar Bella taking part in the art class I attend and yesterday I found her sunning herself in the Buddleia bush .
