Another hot week here in Essex, like really, really hot, so hot it felt quite tropical, especially after walking outside from an air conditioned room. I cant actually remember it being this warm, for many years. Love it, although I'm glad I have an air con unit that cools me down.
1. It was my birthday and I got a butterfly tattoo. I had some work done on my sleeve by a tattooist who I used to babysit back in the 80's. I'm very pleased with it. Lovely birthday treat from Papa Syder.
2. We caught a privet hawk moth. We found it at the bottom of the garden along with a small swarm of them. At first we screamed a bit, as they were massive, at least 6 inches long. We managed to catch one so we could get a better look at it. Fascinating, and very pretty in an ugly kind of way.

3. I picked up another retro bargain. After decorating our lounge we were in need of some new furniture and I wanted 1960's retro furniture. Last week I managed to get my hands on a retro dresser and this week a sideboard. I love it. Bargain for £15. It really made me smile.
4. It rained and the garden loved it! We had a noisy, thundery storm and the following morning the back garden felt lovely and refreshed. It was so needed and cooled the air down beautifully.
How has your week been?
