....in the summer time you will see me wearing this hat a lot (see photo below). It is my friend I keep permanently on the back seat of the car. I take it everywhere. I never liked hats but I grew to love this one as I dislike blinding sunlight more and I've lost my sunglasses. I feel about as comfortable as I can get in 90 degree plus heat and then have to head for an air-conditioned building as I can feel myself turn into a patchwork quilt, usually just before Gregg says, "Denise, you're turning all shades of red and white. This is usually a sign I have overdone it. Fortunately it was lunch time and we headed for the nearest restaurant, which didn't exactly have the wonderful blast of cold air as we walked in the door. I was just too hot to feel anything other than a furnace and it took me half an hour to get back to normal when I actually felt the air-conditioning and had downed two very large glasses of water. Before that I had complained to Gregg and had asked "Where's the flipping air-conditioning? I can't stand it in here." Well, it turned out that it was just me, the Patchwork Quilt. And I've either got to find my sunglasses or buy a new pair tomorrow.
Do you notice the Union jack on a plaque on the wall behind me? You can take the girl out of England, but you can't take England out of the girl so the old saying goes.
And above the Union Jack, London?
I wish we had found out about Justine's a few days ago. We saw an advertisement a little too late, that said they make afternoon tea's but by reservation only. It looked a lovely little place.
