    So,

    Anyone else enjoying the extreme weekend heat?! I'm inside local library and it's over 21 degrees inside, let alone outside! :eek:

    I'm absolutely dripping in sweat, and the more I squash, juice and water I drink, the more thirsty I feel! That can't be right!

    What's the betting that come July / August, we'll be in the middle of the worst snowfall or floods the county's ever seen?! :rotfl:

    I know what you mean, it was quite warm this morning when Claire and I got to the cinema (Batman Begins) but when we left the cool, air-conditioned theatre just after lunch it really hit you...it's really muggy, reminds me of Mexico. Off out to mow the lawn now, should be a sweat festival out there!!!

    Been ruddy intensely humid in Edinburgh today, and grey skies. There's that feeling in the air that makes me think a wee bit of thunder may be on the way soon.

    Not pleasant normally, but after a 10 bottle San Miguel session last night, it's a ruddy nightmare!

    I always close the windows at night to try and stop the pollen getting in (hay fever is bad at the moment) and so there was hardly any air to breathe at all last night. Is there such a thing as a quiet, small, cheap air conditioning system for small houses ?

    Just seen the weekly forecast on Countryfile. Looks like it will last into next weekend, apart from some thunderstorms in Mids & NW today.

    So do mine - the motors are fine - but it lets the heat in!

    Yup

    Air con, elec sunroof & windows, electric seats, adjustable head lights tons of toys - not bad for a Vauxhall (from Russelheim)

    Morning All,

    Well despite yesterday being cooler (and more tolerable), it looks like the weather's getting hotter again. :eek: or should that be :cool:

    I'm barely sleeping more than 2-3 hours a night, because it's so balmy... even with my bedroom window wide open! :( I just can't seem to relax.

    Ah well, I guess I should enjoy the hot weather whilst I can. I bet the folk who've managed to get hold of tickets for Wimbledon and Glastonbury are chuffed-to-bits! :clap:


    Pooch

    P.S. On a more sensible note, does anyone have any tips on keeping cool at night, please? I already sleep on top of my duvet, and au naturelle, but they don't seem to help! :thumbsdow I need to be feeling more :cool: so that I can get some :boring: , because all that's happening at the moment is :mad: and :eek: ! :rotfl:

    Try a hot shower before you go to bed - then the outside world seems cooler. :)

    All this rain has done for me is to wash down all the pollen from the skies and make it so I can't breathe :( Another night of staying awake wheezing.... or maybe I should just get really drunk !
