A few days of sunny warm weather, at last!
A week of having huge sticking plaster and then a grid drawn all over my back, having to wear tops which cover up to my neck, in dark colours.
Patch tests to discover if i am 'sensitive' to a whole load of things including dental things. Dreading finding it was my fillings, and more or less convinced it was.
Results yesterday - no reactors; not allergic to fillings!
now to get the grid off my back - big bath and scrubbing with back brush.
being at home more during this dental episode, as well as it being summer when i tend my window boxes, i observe more from my windows.
for example, i often see a yellow canary perching on the window of one of the opposite flats. Yesterday i observed a person putting a cage in place, opening its door for the canary.
the other morning there was a noisy curfuffle out in the street which turned out to be one of those large arms with a bucket at the end holding two men who were lifted right up to the top of the tenements to have a look at the roofs betwen the windows, gutters perhaps. Then they were lowered again and it all went away.
so here are pics of my window observations:

(forgot the ginger beer)
the closer we got the bigger the patch of blue in the sky became. we were watching it after i said my grandmother reckoned if there is enough blue in the sky to make a sailor's trousers, the sun will come out. eventually there was, and it did.
we set off for another island, where pals of some of our party had an old cottage. they were there and invited us up.
we had a bar-b-que with the food we'd bought and lazed about before heading out for some ski-ing.
