After a freak summer storm yesterday morning that included hail bouncing into my living room, we are back to beautiful blue skies and 40º temps. This is the hard part of summer because it doesn’t actually cool off overnight, might get down to about 25º, so you can imagine that sleeping can be difficult. I only use a fan overnight (no AC), which is mostly fine. But mid-July to mid-August in Sevilla are always the hottest. On the plus side my laundry dries in about 15 minutes…
How is it where you are?
So yikes! I am 62 years old today. Like, how’d that happen? 😉 It’s a total cliché and absolute truth about time flying. And especially with all the cancer stuff, ten years ago now and hopefully completely in the past, it’s amazing I’ve made it this far. Unlike a lot of people, I’ve always loved my birthday, even though the getting older thing comes with some drawbacks (KNEES for example) it certainly beats not getting older! So I do like to do something special to celebrate still being here.
I first met C & S in 2016, when mutual friends Phoebe and Ollie invited me to a rooftop dinner at their place in London. They came to Sevilla a few months later that same year, and are back for a quick getaway. After our cava I headed home, delighted to see the Christmas lights were still on! An excellent birthday.
