Nettle by a wall

The warm weather continues here in the UK. I intended staying indoors all day, but had to go out with my wife to fetch some paint, which was enough to feel the heat. Yesterday evening we went out for a meal and the heat in the restaurant was intense – the place had a communal setup with a number of kitchens serving different cuisines to a central eating area. All the food and drinks had to be ordered via an app and would be delivered by each individual outfit, meaning that meals would arrive at different times for different people. As we ordered food from five different places in total, this took a while to sort out. The place was pleasant enough – in an old industrial building beside the river that has been converted – but there was no air conditioning and very little breeze to be felt through the open windows.

I enjoyed my food – a triple-patty buger on a charcoal bun – despite the heat, but my wife wasn’t particularly impressed – probably because she was practically melting!

Anyway, two people from our party had some fried chicken that they were unabe to finish, so we got the remainder to go and I ate it today. As some of it had a spicy coating, this hasn’t helped keep me cool…

A picture of a nettle today, bane of the bare legged walker.

Walk through the nettles
And then you will see, red lumps
Grow on shins and knees
