Not lazy, just lazing

Why is it that I do not seem to have much to say of late? I cannot remember the last time I had a good old rant about the Labour Party in the UK or Gormless Bush in the States, [thankfully his time is coming to an end and the people of the US have an apparent human to vote for].

I guess when you have something playing on your mind you tend to glance over issues such as those occurring in Turkey and its attempts to produce an Islamic State, or the Civil rights issues still being blatantly flouted by those governing China, or even the hike in fuel and gas prices currently being poured onto the British Consumer.

However, none of these things have gone away and some of them probably never will, not in my life time, but that does not mean I am going to ignore them, it’s just that I am on a break, as Ross Geller once said about himself and Rachel.

I am taking time out to enjoy the last vestiges of the GB summer, [whilst anxiously hoping for a late ‘Indian Summer’ to arrive in September], and have spent time relaxing in the garden and enjoying a few wins on the bowling green, [Back Pains permitting].

The Great British Summer

I have been missing from the blog scene for a day or two once again; my excuse this time is a genuine one – The Great British Summer has arrived, at last!
We have had several glorious days of hot, sticky summer sunshine

We have spent time at the allotment watching the produce growing, we have once again picked amble supplies to see us through the week. We have had the cycles, pushbikes, out again, this time visiting a local Water and Leisure Park, which was brilliant.

Pleasant evenings playing bowls and having a pint of beer afterwards with friends has been so much the better for the lovely weather.

We even had barbeque in the garden yesterday evening.

My back pains have withstood most of the minor physical activities they have had to endure over the last day or two, so life has been good.

The current sunny spell is due to break-up again tomorrow according to the analysts, oh well, it was good whilst it lasted.
