This is an atypically chill image: I'm not sure how to register heat and humidity and loud crickets. But we are very grateful for our air conditioned new loft - and we were delighted and touched that our contractor had been round, and had left us some flowers and ornamental grasses from his garden. These are now on the mantelpiece (out of the way of LucyFur's flower arrangement destructive impulses), by the sheep that we must have left in the alcove above the fireplace. It's very peculiar returning after three months - rather like coming to a rental property, where one thinks one should be able to find things but can't, quite - and yet it's great to re-encounter all one's familiar objects - even if (like the sheep) their whereabouts is quite unpredictable.
