Sunday, May 1
We got up late to discover that the weather had changed completely. It was now blazing hot and the forecast said that it would remain hot and dry for at least ten days. It was time to get the garden furniture out.
Irma had bought a Super Mario Vappu balloon, tied it to a stick in the garden. Today the wind was very high. At some point while I am doing this Mario will sail into my face at full force, cut my lip, and make my nose bleed. This is not the behaviour that I expect from a helium-filled balloon.
Later I will go for a long walk. Later still I will have a shower.
