Too darn hot.....

I am now fed up with this heat! There is no rain forecast for us, for the next two weeks, at least. That will be 7 weeks, surely drought conditions by then?

The bedroom at night, despite being shaded and windows open, is averaging 25C, just too uncomfortable. My insomnia has returned so I am getting progressively grumpy with each passing day.

Poor Ruby (imagine wearing a fur coat) is also feeling it. At the moment, she is not comfortable with being sprayed with water so is struggling to cool down properly, despite lying down on the cool hearth and a fan in operation close by.

Our water bill has risen a little this quarter and I expect the electricity to do the same, with us using the fan so much. Only 4p an hour but it all adds up.

I think it is cooler for the next 3 days so we shall enjoy the break from the heat and humidity!

    1. I think it is worse when it’s humid as well as hot.

    1. Ha! Each to their own. I love the summer flowers but not the heat.

  3. We had some grey clouds this morning and it was a tad cooler. We are back to searing heat now, and those grey clouds didn't produce any rain, so there'll be lots of watering to be done again. Our plot neighbour comes back tomorrow night so at least we'll be back to watering just our plots from Wednesday onwards. Thankyou for email. Will reply soon. xx
