With the weather forecast promising Sahara-like temperatures here today, the priority was to get all the chores out of the way, as quickly as possible, and then take up permanent residence on a sun-lounger!
So, it was over to Peterborough first thing to put some distance between my eyebrows and my fringe (a haircut in other words!), before popping into town with Ann and Lee to get a few bits and pieces for a lazy meal tonight with our friends Jo and Janet. We parked in Sainsbury’s car-park before heading into the centre of town and M and S. It was good to see the sun shining, but as a consequence, not-so-nice to see so much un-ironed flesh on show - welcome to Kettering!!
The weather, for once, lived up to its promises, and the day turned out to be a real scorcher - it was almost TOO hot!!! Ann and Lee slaved in the kitchen preparing a full three-course Italian themed meal as the temperatures rose there as well as outside! Then, about an hour before Jo and Janet arrived, it rained, albeit for only about three minutes - but it cooled everything down nicely.
As expected, the meal was nothing short of fab and with the cooler weather, we all sat outside until about 11.30.
All-in-all, a GREAT day - and what Summers are all about!
