The link is to a song that’s appropriate for the day. Sunny by Boney M. A 1970s disco classic, and a summer hit.
It’s a roaster out there in London today. Clear blue skies and temperatures around 80F. Lovely. But there is always a downside. Today’s peer support group attendance suffered as a result. There were only five of us, including two facilitators and one newbie. The regulars saw the day and the idea of sitting in a small, stuffy room with the sun beating down outside was not for them. I can quite understand.
If I had that opportunity to go and do something else today, I would have done so. It’s too nice out there and it does lift everyone’s spirits to have the sun on their back and to enjoy the glorious warmth.
To be fair though, it’s been a long week, and the fact there were only five of us made it a lot more intimate and cosy. There was no pressure today to get everyone to tell us how they were feeling, as normally we are under some kind of time pressure. Relaxed, informal chat, as per usual, but without old Father Time to beat us.
It’s been a long week, but I can qualify that by saying it’s been a good week personally. All in the Brooks garden is quite rosy, apart from a few weeds! Nice to be back, doing a little bit of work here and there. Next week is somewhat quieter, so it’s good to look forward to the weekend and more umpiring duties.
Enjoy the weather
