Disability Talk / Re: Heatwaves, good or bad for you?

Another TV tip went a little further and put ice in the hot water bottle. I don't have a hot water bottle, but so far I have been managing reasonably well at night.

I had my haircut this morning so that might help.

I bought myself a nice big bag of large ice cubes for 1. I know I can make my own, but I find I usually spill half the tray between tap and freezer and then have a struggle to get them out of the tray. Only problem with the bags is you sometimes have to whack them with a mallet to break them up if they have been in the freezer a while. I still find them less hassle overall.

Happy chilling.

Sounds delightful, OldTone!  But brace yourself, there's another three days of climbing temperatures to come  >crying< 

Dad gave me a tip he'd heard on the TV which seems wonderful in its simplicity - if you have a hot water bottle, fill it with cold water and take it to bed so you can cool your feet off on it!

Lovely morning sailing in Poole Harbour. I say sailing but given very light wind and contrary tide it was more like drifting. Nonetheless very relaxing.

A little light cloud has taken the intensity off the sun now.

Big Muff, I never knew that!

Rather humid here as well, OldTone - any mild activity brings one out in a sweat.  Yuk  >thumbsdown<

ah that was probably due to the long running saga of female staff being allowed to ignore the dress code whilst male staff have to adhere to it.
The original dress code got  scrapped as the JCP lost employment tribunals as men proved that women were allowed to flaunt the code whilst they had to wear a proper shirt tie etc.Theoretically anyone turning up to sign on had to be ready to attend a job interview there and then so they too should be dressed in similar style.

I forgot to mention but yesterday I was speaking to a DWP worker and while she was looking at the screen the tannoy announcer started with this message "DWP staff are reminded that there is a dress code and all staff should dress in business attire,  despite the heat swimwear and beach wear are not appropriate"  >lol< >lol< >lol<  I laughed and said to the lady surely your staff don't need to be told that, she apologised that I had heard it and said someone had been sent home for turning up in swimming trunks.   That would be an assault on your visual senses if any of my workmates tried that. >runforthehills<

We managed about 3 spots over 5 minutes yesterday. Didn't even wet the pavemit. Today was slightly fresher especially in the afternoon in Weymouth. Sunny evening but no breeze so a bit sticky.
