Quite literally hot ‘n’ sticky….
Sunday, 2nd July
After working all day in the garden under a blisteringly hot July Sun I decided to get a very long drink of ice cool water. I strode towards the french windows, brow beaded with honest toil, gnarlied hands with the ingrained hue of home made compost, my white cotton shirt, drenched in sweat stuck to my skin like sticky glue. I began to muse. What figure from literature did I currently resemble?…..
Perhaps a brooding D’arcy, after his lake swim in Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice?…..
"Do you think I look a bit like Mellors the gamekeeper from Lady Chatterley’s Lover?"
"More like Stig of the Dump"….
