The heatwave of the past week hasn't ended here yet and we've not had a single drop of rain. My days have consisted of an earlyish walk with Tilly to the local park and trying to keep her off the hot pavements as much as possible. I've spent time in the garden with her with me sitting underneath the parasol above the garden table and chairs. Having heard the neighbour's little girl enjoying herself in the paddling pool I ordered a doggy pool for Tilly and went to collect that yesterday. I'm hoping she will enjoy it as she does love jumping up and getting soaked with the water from the garden hose.
Thinking it would be cooler yesterday I took her to the big park and we were just in time to see the cricketers breaking for refreshments and a couple of them telling me it was too hot for cricket. The circus is in town and thankfully these days it is an animal free circus show.
Tilly is not comfortable in this heat and unfortunately the mobile groomers are fully booked and not taking on new clients. So while I've been trying to book an appointment poor Tilly has had to wait but thankfully she will have a good trim later this week.
I've not mentioned as well as staying indoors in this extreme heat I've had a toothache for a couple of days and thankfully discovered it was a raspberry seed stuck in my tooth but I did eventually manage to dislodge it much to my relief. I really didn't want to have to visit the dentist as that could potentially delay the six monthly infusion I need that's been arranged for next month and that's exactly what happened last time. Lesson learned not to enjoy my own version of Eton Mess made with raspberries, meringue and cream and kidding myself they are good for me as part of my five a day :)
