I know I’ve been writing this for the last few days but summer is officially here! A heatwave has hit and today it was 27 degrees outside. I know, I should be doing some more job hunting but I had an interview this morning and I have one tomorrow and one next week now. So I thought I’d take a break and enjoy the sun.
The garden wasn’t was quiet as I was hoping though, all the flies were out and being loud. I watched a butterfly for awhile and I saw some bumble bees and honey bees and they were all quiet, so why do the bluebottles have to be so loud?
I read a few chapters of my new book – the supernatural detective one. No way am I going to finish that before I go on holiday. The words are a lot smaller then the last two books though the thickness doesn’t look increased. Anyway, it’s a good enough book to take away with me and I ordered the next one today, so I can go straight on with it.
The heat got too much for me and I had to come inside for lunch but then after answering some emails and some texts from the job agencies, I went out again. The new next door neighbors’ cat was drinking from the bird bath. We both got a start!
Then he came over to sniff me and say hello. He’s a really nice ginger tom, I bet he’s a Casanova with the ladies though! After a few minutes of petting, he went under my shed and into the shade. I didn’t see him again after that.
I long for a paddling pool! Some place nice to dip my feet into. Maybe I’ll go and get one tomorrow after my interview. My brother won’t mind. He’s not due back until Friday then he’s off to visit our parents and girlfriend then back again to fly off to Germany. I was wishing I could fly off some place but with this weather who’d want to do that?
I had a quick look at some more jobs this evening but I didn’t really see any I liked the look of. Everyone keeps tell me not to be so picky, but I want to find the right fit for me and I’m okay for money right now. My part-time job keeps giving me more hours. Also, I just can’t imagine being able to work in this heat!
I might go out for a walk now as it’s not so hot. Though there might be more bugs out there. Have to put some anti-bug spray on. It’ll be nice to get out for a bit though. I might see if there are any cute men around! If not there’s always the internet!
