Excited Or Sad, You Decide

I've just pre-ordered the 3CD box set, Before The Dawn by the lovely Kate Bush.  Am I understandibly excited or just plain sad, beyond hope so to speak LOL?

To be released late November, this is a recording of her live shows from a couple of years ago that I didn't get to see. Due to not having a spare £400. All the cheaper seats having been snapped up it seems in a nano-second or pre-sold.

Just had my Meds tripled, my BP hasn't come down anywhere near as much as my GP wants. Get to go back for more tests next week. Ho hum.

A Bit Tatty

I'm still waiting to get my hands on one of the new Polymer £5 notes, which came into circulation last week. The old paper ones are looking a tad shabby now...

The Aussies have used Polymer for years and their notes are next to indestructible dontchaknow.

Awesome Performance

Let's take a look at the final Paralympics medal table, courtesy of the BBC News website. I think it's fair to say our sports women and men have once again done us all proud.

As of today Great Britain has won 31 bronze, 28 silver and 49 gold. An incredible achievement from our talented sports stars.

Not Summer

The UK's Met Office seem to have fallen in line with other similar weather forecasting bodies and have started declaring the beginning of a given month to also be start of a season, rather than using an equinox or solstice.

For example Autumn officially began on 1st September, and not later this month. How come then the weather has been so glorious, with temperatures yesterday in the UK in excess of 30 degrees Celsius? Feels more like Summer than the "official" Summer did.

Do you think maybe Mother Nature didn't get that particular memo LOL?

Come Into My Parlour...

Following my recent post regards Spiders, I found this splendid specimen in the garden today and just had to share an image or two with you all LOL.

Seems my blood pressure is extremely high. My GP has been brilliant and has acted very promptly, starting me on medication with immediate effect. Probably for life but then again I want that to be a long time.
