Life on Mars?

See .


Well, today we probably saw the last of our warm, sunny weather. Tomorrow rain is forecast. We have had very few settled period  this year with mostly low pressure systems and maybe a few sunny days. In the last few days we have had warmth and sunshine and the garden has really come on.

UPDATE 2220z:  It has been raining here now for several hours.  Ho hum - was that it? Spring and summer over?

Sepura Shares

Shares in my old company Sepura (SEPU) ended the day nearly 5% up. They fell heavily a few weeks ago.

Garden Shed
Yesterday I did most of the re-sealing of my garden shed. I still have a bit to do in the sunshine later as well as the garden bench, a gate and the bird table. I am taking it in easy stages as I get tired easily these days.

At least the last few days have been sunny and warm - ideal for these sorts of jobs.

Stroke update

2.5 years after my cerebellum brain bleed, I am still suffering. The worst are the poor speech, the profound exhaustion I suffer after most mental or physical exertion and feeling drunk all of my waking hours.

To others I look fine. This is part of my frustration: everyone thinks I am fully back to normal, whereas I know different. It is very very hard to accept.

RRS Sir David Attenborough

The new polar research vessel has been named after Sir David Attenborough and not Boaty which was the outcome of a popular vote. I think this is the right decision.
