For Sue Hayman in Hong Kong, sponsoring my walking efforts, I think the summer holidays might put paid to regular walking until kids are back in school - although I have to say that having navelbine in the morning, seeing assorted children off to camps, back from sleepovers, and so on during the day, and then ending up at five in the afternoon at Finchley Lido, our local wave machine swimming pool, feels like quite enough walking. But anyhow, will resume regular walks with the new term. May have to give up the holy grail quest for the perfect shampoo and blow-dry until then as well...although I'm getting so addicted to helmet hair I may just sneak out for the odd bout of rollers.
On the plus side the Guardian quick crossword does seem to finally have given up the obsession with flower names. Hurrah! For a minute there, yesterday, thought they were substituting a fish obsession, but that seems to have passed.
