Way-aye, Roscoe here.
I’ve got some pictures of hay-making and our late night grass time this week. But first I’m asking for Questions.
I was telling Mam how hard it is to think of something to say each week, and Mam said ‘why not interview the others?’
When I said I didn’t know what to ask them, she said to ask you.
So, please would you ask questions in the comments that I can ask Biggles and Neville. Then I’ll ask them and write each up on one day. Mam says she’ll think of some too, and it’ll be a Profile of each of us. That suggests I have to interview myself, too.
Mam’s put the hay up on a rack in the summerhouse to finish drying now, but this is how she dried it in the sun.
It’s been extremely hot the last few days. Mam says that, but we’ve been just the usual temperatures. Mam opens the door to the garden first thing, so the fresh morning air comes in, but she closes the curtains to keep the sun out. By the time we’ve been cleaned out she closes the door to keep the cool in. All day long we’re inside, and so is she. She’s been writing this week. There’s been a tall blowy thing wafting air across us too. It feels good, but I wonder if Mam is over-doing it. I mean, it looks lovely outside when she draws back the curtains in the afternoon.
But she goes outside for something and comes back in and says “ It’s terribly hot, boys. It’s 32!” Whatever that means, I don’t know. Apparently it’s got up to 25 at the highest in our room, which seemed fine to me.
Then we get to go out when the sky is starting to go pink. It’s a little bit warmer than our room then, but it gets cooler. On Saturday Mam was reading her ebook and didn’t realise it was nearly dark! She was better yesterday though.
We like it outside in the evening. It’s very pleasant and quiet.
See you next week, and please remember to ask lots of questions that I can ask the others over the rest of August.
