They  think we all want hot weather for me the last several days has been very difficult. I need it to cool down. I bought a fan the other day for up in our room and that has helped a little but its like I'm at high altitude breathing thin air through treacle.

to sleep in hot weather is easy under a nice damp cool towel. and the other thing is after a cool shower do not dry yourself, so you can stay cool for longer time, only problem are the puddles and wet seats.

Good advice there, huhn  >thumbsup<

Acording to my GP a tepid shower or bath is the best thing in hot weather. The water isn't warm enough to heat your body up any further, but does afford effective cleaning, which clears and opens the pores, enabling your body to perspire more effectively.

Less effort than a bath/shower (particularly if you've already had one that day!) is:  fill your bathroom basin with cold water and plonk your hands in - making sure the wrists are wetted as well - then shake the excess droplets off your mitts and brush them over your arms and legs instead of drying with a towel.  Gives a temporary cool sensation which can be repeated easily enough!

It was 28C and very muggy yesterday afternoon. Better today at 26C in shade with a breeze taking the edge of the heat. Still far too hot in the sun.

I woke up at 05.30 this morning, and it was lovely outside. Had a bit of a wheel along the street enjoying some distant birdsong, and the beautiful morning air.

It's fekkin' roasting now.

It was 30 degrees in this room last night at sunset, but then the room does face due west.

Today's top heat-related tip - two hot water bottles, filled with cold water, then put in the fridge to chill. One for the back of the neck, one for behind the knees. It's working surprisingly well.

In the throws of another thunderstorm.  No rain yet, but very dark.  Just thunder and lightning.  I've shut all the windows so now getting extremely hot indoors.  Oh, here comes the rain!

It was 17C with a cloudless blue sky at 7am, I wish it could have stayed like that all day! It was blissful in the pool too  >biggrin<
