I haven't posted or commented much or done much at all the past few weeks. It's just been too hot, most of the time. Plus there was Wimbledon and then I got a bad cold afterwards. This weekend has been 'cold' (low 20sC) so I'm getting everything in now before going back to mostly just watching TV and reading because that's all I have the energy for (plus being on a hot laptop is hot).
I did go to Wimbledon (probably where I got the cold from) for the first time in five years. Our seats on Court One were really far forward - usually we're at the back. Of course the back was in the shade and we weren't. Fortunately it was a less hot day ('only' about 25C) and cloudy, so the sun did keep going in. But I struggled in the sun and had to miss some because I couldn't concentrate.
We did less than I expected because Federer vs Anderson went on so long. After that we had dinner and a walk and then got Centre Court tickets to see the last set of Nadal vs Del Potro. That was a very good set of tennis and we were even closer to the court! At least by this point the sun had gone down enough that I needed to wear a jumper. Although it was annoyingly on the side, so I had to move my eyes to follow the ball, but managed to move them as little as possible. I was on TV, because I found me on the iPlayer, but it was in the background as the camera panned across. We weren't sitting far from where Nadal ended up in the first row of the stands or from where someone caught a ball that he mishit up into the air.
I have nearly 90 photos on Flickr, although it's helpfully put them in a slightly random order. I can see it's random based on how bright the photos are.
I am going to post about Never Seen Star Wars for this month, while it's not so hot. I'm just skipping the saying what I'm doing part first. I had a plan for August, because I have less going on, but it's not something I want to do in the heat, so what I do for August depends on the weather. So I might well not be announcing that beforehand either.
I umm'ed and ah'ed about signing up for remixrevival because I really like Remix, but if the weather stays hot all summer I don't want to have to write something during that time. So I decided not to, but if it cools down and something strikes me in Madness, then I might do that.
