Summer,Winter, Spring and Autumn.....

Well, it looks (and feels) as though summer is back again. We had quite a long wait for the real Southern France heat of summer to invade our area, although never really particularly cold or even out of the ordinary, it was certainly not the usual heat, and only into late June did it finally give a little taste of real warmth the area is capable of giving."TC" (aka "her indoors") suffered a little during the first heat, but it didn't last too long, and she developed her own system of dealing with it, mainly hunched up in front of the mobile air conditionning plant, which I personally usually keep turned off except for maybe a couple of days now and then.....mainly due to the noise the thing makes. She insisted on being used to this unseemly racket, something I find difficult to beleive, since I personally can't take more than a couple of minutes of it, particularly not in the bedroom!
Things weren't helped either, of course, by the situation regarding my health, suffering as I do with "vertigo" attacks, although not directly caused by heat, certainly not helped by heat at night time. I don't know if she has had any experience with "New York fire escape sleeping" - seems to be a common experience, but TC managed to get some sleep somewhere around 3/4am....Then the furnace was turned down considerably, and things became easier - now we're back to the heat, and the problems of sleep...!
Strange how bedrooms always seem to be the hottest places in an appartment.
The main thing is the avoiding vertigo whilst getting some sleep - just hoping now that my new medicament will help, once it has built up a little defence.
