100/100 CHALLENGE 81: when the sun beats down and burns the tiles upon the roof

Day 81

The sun beats down and a refrain, as usual runs through my head. I’m pegging out washing and feel the solar power through my clothes, the paving slabs almost burning beneath my bare feet.
I improvise… when the sun beats down and burns the tiles upon the roof, the ground so hot you wish your tired feet were fire proof…
The Drifters – end-of-term music, and scorching, energising, wonderful heat before it’s too much and you look for shade; then that stillness when everything’s too warm to move, the air sizzling, vibrating with summer happiness, the only factor is #feel-good.

April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
