What is the weather doing with you?I feel so sorry for people who are on holiday.Here in North Wales it is cold,wet,grey and windy and we have got the central heating on!Our son is at the Isle of Wight Festival which I understand is waterlogged.Such a shame.

No photos today.We have been to the funeral of a very dear friend today.She was our next door (but one) neighbour.She was 91 two days before she died and she was an amazing lady.A real role model for me and everyone.She had ovarian cancer when she was 84,I went with her when she was diagnosed because I was certain that would be the diagnosis.She got over that.A year ago she got breast cancer.She overcame it all until the cancer spread to her liver.Connie was in my reading group.She only missed one.She always knew all the characters,dialogue,namesetc ,alot more than many of us umteen years younger.She ran a writers group,was a member of a drama group,studied philosophy,could email,text and until 6 weeks ago was driving.I was very close to Connie and feel really sad tonight.She was always smiling and a truly remarkable lady.My role model.Tomorrow I will celebrate her life but tonight I feel sad.( I could have done with a phone call from my daughter checking I was OK!)

It was very quiet on the Costa del Sol.The beaches were empty.I don't think I would like it in July and August.The sun shone and we shared a brilliant holiday with the family.Lots of lovely memories for us to look back on.What a shame we couldn't bring the sunshine back home with us.Five weeks at home and then off to France for a week.Being retired is such hard work(not)!!
