I lost count of the times I went up and told them off, but in the end I just sat and watched a detective story on iplayer. Their Mum soon settled them when she got home, and the next day, I bought them both some summer pjs, in case it was the heat keeping them awake. We had already discarded the duvet, and had cotton satin sheets on with a very thin cotton bedspread.
The next day, I got a phone call to say the rector had seen an ambulance outside Mum in Law's house, had gone to investigate and was told she was being taken to hospital, as she had been found confused in a road at the other end of the village. At the mention of the word 'ambulance', I'd had a massive adrenalin rush, then palpitations. It was going to be 6 years the next day since her husband died.
I managed to tell husband, and he phoned the A&E dept and actually spoke to his Mum. She said she was ok, but had some sort of fall, and they were going to keep her in overnight. She didn't want us to go down. She actually ended up staying till the Tuesday morning,as she needed to see a physio,and they don't work weekends. She had various xrays, a brain scan, 3 ECGs, but they couldn't seem to find anything that had caused a fall, and she has no recollection of the accident other than that she was on her way to the hairdresser's, and was taking a short cut through the car park. so how she ended up cut and bruised, in a road about a quarter of a mile away, remains a mystery. Perhaps the memory will come back later.
On the evening of the 3rd July,we'd had a couple of really hot days ,and then we had a huge thunderstorm, which went on for ages. That weekend we went over to Aylesbury for shopping as there was something I wanted to buy. I didn't find it but we saw some very interesting people.

Our Daughter took the children to the dentist for the first time, so I went with them to help out whilst Daughter was being examined. July was a fairly wet month, but we also had some very hot days. The front garden really flourished again, there were loads of raspberries and blackcurrants,and we ate lots of them, I froze some, I made 2 lots of jam.
