    Certainly was a warm one today! Best strategies are plenty of water, a good sized hat, and loose clothing. Lots and lots of suncream of course and if you possibly can, stick to the shade. ;)

    pmsl :biglaugh::biglaugh: nice one!!

     

    I'm not coping too well with this heat at all. Today I was walking around the house with a wet tea towel around my shoulders (would recommend that inside your own house, not a good look on the streets). :cute:

    Holy moly, it certainly was, and still is a real scorcher! That bloomin' wind, like you had opened the oven door! Poor old Matty had to cut a hedge, so additional blast of comforting warmth from a petrol hedge trimmer, just to make sure he didn't catch a chill...poor bugger!

     

    Mind you, a chilly 37 tomorrow, so maybe time to break out the jumper and socks eh? :goofy:

     

    Enjoy it, drink plenty of water and stay indoors if possible. Suzer, if you want to drop over for a cold beer under the aircon, just give us a shout!

    LOL LOL ive been stuck in a bus all day at 18.5.

    It was 41 when i finished work, yes it was a bit on the warn side but still would rather its like that than freezing my ass of in the UK.

    On the plus side if your a bit like me and want to lose a few pounds; what better weather.

    Hope theres more to come

    The highest I saw it around the pool was 41! Great ain't it?

    9.35 pm just got out of the pool which was a very hot 34 degrees and the outside temperature is currently 31.

    Bring it on, love it. Just missed last years 14 day heat wave as we got on the plane when it started so I wonder how much we will get this year.

    Not nice to work in though, I was hack sawing through some metal in the garden not a fun job I can tell you.

    I need a west end draft or two!!

    We went and had a swim in our friends pool straight after getting off a stinking hot train that had no air conditioning whatsoever and had to endure it for 50 minutes! It was a wonder no one collapsed in the heat. When we got to the car, the temperature inside the car was no different to what we were sitting in inside the train! Not pleased about that at all! Note to self: Don't get in the middle carriage again.

    wait till we have a few days in the 40's with the lows down to around 30 at night, you soon get used to it. When the humidity is up then its not good all you do is drip and as for those who say they love it, the hotter the better well I can only assume they dont work for a living
