Rain and deep breaths


The honeysuckle next door is so orange & yellow (no scent though)

I woke up this morning and took a nice deep breath.

Doesn't sound like anything very spectacular, but it's 2 months since I was last able to take a full breath into my lungs, they've only been letting me take in about 1/3 of a normal breath. So I'm pretty excited about this, it means I can talk a bit longer and a bit louder without getting so wiped out. It also means I can start controlling pain again, I'm pretty reliant on good breathing for that, and without it I've been having to take a lot more painkillers. I hate taking painkillers.

The rain continues to fall here in Scotland, will it ever stop? Today, as yesterday, it is bourne on the back of a cold North wind. Mr P said my cheap plastic greenhouse was semi tipped over in the night. What happened to June? This is clearly April. I feel so sorry for my parents, they are opening their garden for charity tomorrow and all the flowers have been drenched in heavy rain all week. I suppose it's a blessing that it is only the plants that are suffering, in England they are having a lot of severe floods and have to keep rescuing people. Poor souls. I think it's partly this sort of thing that is finally making this country take global warming seriously, the previous attitude was that it was great if it meant hot summers.

I won't be posting tomorrow, I'll probably be deadheading flowers in the rain. Hope you have a dry Sunday to enjoy your gardens or local parks, or even just having some sun shine in through your window making nice shadows across the room, that's the bit I always like.

Cally, so glad that you are taking deep breaths, hope you get better soon. Isn't it mad that we're getting heavy rain in June? I am still waiting for summer to arrive...
