Hot, hot, hot...

First of all, welcome to my new follower Stephanie H. Glad you decided to join us here in Norfolk.

I have a thermometer sitting in the sun and it is currently registering 37C. The one in the shade says it is 26 nearly 27C! I have been doing small amounts of gardening, first thing whilst it was still cool and now, in the shade another large bucketful of weeds has been consigned to the great weed heap! That is all I am going to do I can tell you.

The thermometer in our north facing lounge currently reads 24C so it is positively balmy no matter where you are. Shall I go and read the one in the west facing conservatory - 40C, good job I don't have any plants in there at the moment! It will definitely be a salad based meal, with cold potatoes and some tuna for tea. I had hoped to make some rhubarb and elderflower jam but my rhubarb has been pathetic this year. I could barely pick enough to have with some custard for tea.

More tomorrow when hopefully, I will feel cooler than today - I really hate humidity.

  3. It really has been gorgeous here too - just enough breeze here to take the oppressiveness away. Perfect :)

    1. Nice enough breeze and managed to get lots of washing dried.

  4. A bit of sun on your back makes all the difference in the world doesn't it? As you say DC its lovely to peg the washing out too.

    1. Other than our towels, all washing gets dried on the line if possible, has a lovely smell when you bring it in. Our conservatory reaches 40C this time of year, so if the weather outside is not too good, it can dry in there.
