Great post Venuscat, you deserve it.

No air con here either as it would be uneccesary for 360 days on an average year. Living in central-ish London I cannot leave my bedroom windows open either as it is too noisy. Never mind, it does not happen very often.

HAPPY WORLD EMOJI DAY!

Morning Weekenders...

Gosh what a night. I woke up shaking and covered in sweat. I had dreadful nightmares, violent and nauseating.I dreamt of being hurt or tortured, and it felt so real and kept waking me up.

I’m back at work today FINALLY... First I was on holiday for a few days because of my mum visiting, then they didn’t have any shifts for me for another week... I never thought I’m gonna say it because I hate my job but I literally cannot wait.

Sao LOL emoji day

Venus, what a lovely post and thoughts to wake up to this morning. Thanks for that.

I have to get up really early to pump cool dawn air into my condo for a couple hours otherwise it is too hot all day. Windows open, large fan on the deck, sort of air conditioning but not really.

Is it Fall yet?

Well let it be a warning to those who decide to buy a used refrigerator. I saved a lot of money, but it's taking a while to sort through the bad apples.

I can't imagine the business I bought it from are liking it much either. A lot of money spent to send two guys out three times.

First World Problem.

I hope the latest fridge works like it is supposed to bim, this is turning into a refrigerated version of War and Peace.

I do have an "antique" looking fan on a stand Venuscat but it is more show than go. It has art deco look to it.

Here's hoping for a better night tonight Snufkin.

In line with the glamorous circles I move in I am looking forward to the start of a three-part TV documentary tonight called "London's £5 billion Super Sewer. I will be hoping to sell some of the company I work for's products over the next few years, I have already sold some. It may be crap to you but it' s my bread and butter.

(((MantaLady))). AV flare-ups are normal. Try to remember that AVs are the most proficient and consummate of liars- believe nothing they say.

One thing for certain is that it hates how well you are doing.
