I shall probably take it, out of habit. There are two EE masts near me so I might pick up a signal, albeit a weak one. Plus, doesn’t calling the emergency services allow you to connect to any available network? Maybe not, can’t say I have ever tried.

Indeed. Still, acts as an incentive to leave it at home when out for a walk.

Yaay, rain. Boo, still no mobile signal. Not had one for about a week now, during working hours. The story is always “maintenance” or “upgrading”. Sometimes at the end of the day a 4G signal reappears, sometimes only 3G. But it’s fine, just use WiFi, though that kind of defeats the point of having a “mobile” phone. 🤷🏼‍♀

It’s horrid today, isn’t it. Even with the slight breeze we have it’s just draining. I can hardly stay awake and I have another headache.

Some friends of mine went on a cruise that included Greenland. They said it was spectacular, but that the people were living a pretty subsistence-level existence. They said they felt a bit uncomfortable there; obviously the money from tourism was welcome, but the poverty was hard to see.

It does! Though I think I’d prefer Norway, or Iceland. I don’t even mind fairly hot weather as long as the humidity is low. I just feel permanently grubby & unclean in high humidity.

I think if they fit closely enough… Though I agree, I couldn’t run in them. But then I can’t run anyway…
My preferred footwear in summer is Birkenstock Gizeh sandals & sandals by a local company which is called Gumbies. Toe-post sandals are the only type I can wear, as anything else totally shreds my skin on the arch of the foot. I like clog-style shoes, too (Birks’ Boston). Other than that it’s hiking shoes/boots.
I do want to go somewhere where there’s a Dr Martens store, so I can try a pair of their boots. I had a beautifully worn-in pair which finally died a few years ago, but I want to double-check their fit before I get a new pair.

Too hot. And so humid!

I never water my lawns, only my flower beds & pots. Though that will be a more onerous task assuming we do get a hosepipe ban. It’s much easier easier on my damaged shoulders to point a hose than lug large watering cans around. ☹ But that’s the price I pay for other people’s hot tubs, paddling pools etc.

Therein lies the joy of sandals. But really you should give your feet time to heal!
