It’s 36 degrees here in Perth, the first really hot day and I am so glad of the air conditioning. The cats are both lurking inside, and while I’m outside, it’s in the shade where we have a breeze. I bought some hats yesterday !
They were from the markets, which were packed with tourists from all around the world. So wearing the mask seemed like a sensible option, based on my blood tests I only need the mask in very busy places or where someone may be sick.
We went down to Margaret River this weekend, for a really quick trip, as I was getting restless at home. It does seem a bit extravagant to go all the way to Margaret River for just one night, it’s 3 hours away, but the change of scenery was really needed. I also got a fair bit of Christmas shopping done as there’s some lovely gourmet food shops there; the best chocolate, awesome olive oil, the venison farm and we didn’t even get started on the bakeries and cheese places. Lunch at a cafe by the beach and dinner in the hotel were pretty good as well !
While it was great to get away for a night, and see different vistas, spending today quietly at home has been lovely. I had been starting to pack activities into the day and have to remember that I need time to be quiet.
Lots of time being very peaceful is still welcome. I slept all the way home yesterday, and late this morning, a good reminder that I still need to build resilience.
Recovery – still seeing tiny improvements, so I am seeing that as a very positive indication. How much this is due to the treatment, the MSGym, plentiful time to rest or attitude I just don’t know. I suspect it’s a mixture of everything, with the treatment being the strongest contributor, however I don’t really care. A slow windy path down still gets you to the bottom of the mountain.
One thought on “First hot day of summer”
So often we only know we’ve gone too far in retrospect. I like that you mostly think ahead 😸
