What a scorcher!!

Today is the hottest day of the year so far with temps reaching 26 degC, far in excess of May's usual temps of around 16 degC. I got up early today and yesterday and walked the dogs before it got too hot. Today I have also done 6 loads of washing and got it all dry, and I cut the grass - by hand with shears as it had been neglected for far too long!! Yesterday I also did 2 loads of washing - I don't think I have a stitch of clothing, a sheet or a towel that hasn't been washed this weekend!! Next on the list I need to clean out the rabbit, and then I need to get the spare room ready as I might have a visitor tomorrow for a few days.... my friend from Guernsey is over here and was supposed to be on a course, but her van has broken down. She should have been travelling home tomorrow but is now stuck until her van is fixed.

I have got a dog from work staying at the moment. Her name is Gretel. She's not one of mine, a colleague is training her but isn't able to take her home herself so I've got her. Gretel has been dirty overnight with the boarder which is a concern, thankfully she's been clean here with me so hopefully a few weeks with me will re-establish a routine and it won't be a problem again. She's a really sweet girl, a black Lab x GR.
