My eyes feel itchy too Redhead, I feel for you and Mike, hope things improve soon. At least today there's a bit of a breeze here but it still isn't pleasant - can somebody please turn off the heat!
Got to cycle today. We have another sprint tri on 2 August, probably the last of the season, unless I can persuade John he wants to do Remagen Olympic in September,that's my favourite event, it's the one where they take the competitors on a ferry up the Rhine for 2.8km and then we all jump off into the river and swim back to an exit point where guys in wetsuits are standing in the water ready to pull us out. The current is so swift I can swim the 2.8km in my normal 1km time!
No, it's hot and sticky at night once you're inside. I've heard a neighbour and his family have started sleeping out on their balcony, maybe that's the way to go! It was cooler first thing but now the sun is out again and not a cloud in the sky.
I am on Facebook, as we have a private group for our dog club members to keep in touch on where/when we have training (ior no training as it has been for the past week). I really hope it cools off soon, Nemo and I need to go to another club where we plan to take an exam in a couple of weeks - need to get him used to differences from our grounds. It's always best to show a dog the field he is going to work on otherwise things could go wrong during the test. For instance, the first thing he will have to do is run round a "hide" and then to another on the other side of the field. He is used to our hides which are green plastic and temporary, some clubs have permanent wooden ones, some even with hedges. If he doesn't go round them, we will be disqualified before we've hardly begun! And the baddie he has to stop may move differently from what he is used to.
