Looking out of my window at 1.20am as I often do and I was lucky enough to catch the International Space Station flying overhead, beautiful clear night for once and eerily silent, a few minutes later and it is long gone somewhere over the far east - mind-boggling! I do like my night life.

Night walk

Hi, just had a lovely night walk back from a friend's house, totally quiet, fragrant too - roses, honeysuckle and mown grass, just beautiful. Just the lightest of breezes to cool things down a bit, supposed to be hotter again tomorrow though - boo. Anyway, onwards with some work!

Loud night in Ludlow

I am aware that for some reason football turns normally sane people into fighting, shouting idiots but last night was ridiculous. At one point I felt like shouting out of my window to the group of shrieking women outside the pub up the road to either get on with killing each other or kindly move along...thought better of it though.

The problem with being up during the night is that for a lot of it - especially at the weekend - the peace is gone until about 2am, after that I can enjoy my time a bit more until I go to bed in the early hours, btw the dawn chorus started at about 3.30am this morning I think, beautiful!

Yesterday we had the most amazing thunder storm. It went dark and humid then the rumblings began, then the flashes of lightening, then torrential rain - and I mean torrential! I feel empowered by a good storm, the smell and energy in the air, the freshness afterwards all add up to my favourite kind of weather, closely followed by snow, at least I have a weather-love for winter and summer!
Anyway, with the cooler air I have found it easier to work, washing done, ironing left to do though, off to cook tea now before sitting down with Springwatch later.
