It’s June 21st the longest day of the year, so there is less time to cry when going to sleep tonight. Strange how that is what comes to mind. But, of course, tonight is not that sort of time for going to bed. Tonight is another fundraising night and will see me out til the early hours rattling a bucked for the local Pride festival.

It’s midsummer and it’s pouring with rain here. So not the best day to go out for a nice drive or anything – and even when I get home I’ll not want to do any of the tidying that is so seriously necessary. Maybe I will find some willing assistance from my friends during the week. It was funny yesterday I was clearing out mouldy food from my parents’ fridge and larder but suddenly thought that i would probably need to do this at my house and would likely not be as quick at doing it there.
