The bedroom is 30C making it difficult to sleep. Fan is on, windows are open (cooler outside) but it is still hot inside:(
Ruby enjoyed her first ice cubes today. She had them over 4 sessions. Despite sitting in front of a fan or laying on the cool bathroom floor, she still, given a brief opportunity, shot outside trying to lay in the sun. Daft dog. She was promptly returned indoors.
Plants galore in the garden wilted in the heat. They were watered thoroughly this morning but had to be done again at 9pm.
I am amazed at how hot the UK is. I know that this is something you are not used to at all, and that most do not have air conditioning. Hope things cool down for you very soon.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Maybe 1% have air conditioning at a vague guess. Cooler this morning but house still hot. Just need rain, that will cool everything down.Delete
We're so thankful for homes that hold the heat in the winter but it's not so nice on these rare occasions of extreme heat, are they. My bedroom was shockingly hot too but it had cooled down this morning again, thank goodness. xxReplyDelete
Oddly enough, our south facing bedrooms were cooler, with blinds, that our north facing lounge.Delete
Somehow I've managed to sleep really well but I had very strange dreams last night. A whale in the canal that I had to steer the boat around while it was thrashing it's tail everywhere, and then later in a totally different dream, my Mum and Dad arriving in a completely wooden estate car to visit me and the boys ... who had shrunk back to 4 and 10 ... and telling me they were going to be moving into a caravan permanently!! My brain is obviously frazzled!!ReplyDelete
Majorly so methinks. Wonder what it was trying to work out!Delete
I've been reading about your heat wave. I couldn't survive without AC - I live in a hot area so everyone has either AC or a swamp cooler. I sincerely hope it cools down for you all.ReplyDelete
Luckily, we rarely have the extreme humidity you do but it has certainly knocked us to be sure. Some plants in my garden have been scorched.Delete
Hope the weather cools down in England soon. I have seen some videos here in USA where there are buildings and houses burning close to London. Sad [ I am glad you were able to make a curtain to put over a window to keep the sun out. It had been hot these past two days in low 90 F. Into 80s then back into 90 weather. At least I'm mostly indoors when working. I do water plants outdoors if my daughter doesn't do it. I hope your son feels better and able to fly back home soon. Take care and stay cool in more ways than one!ReplyDelete
I came over from My Quiet Life in Suffolk blog post. I enjoy reading blogs from England as I lived there 2 years when I was in USAF serving at RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge late 1976-78.
Well hello and welcome. Our son is tired but getting better, just needs a negative test and no more cancellations of his flights. Yes, the burnt houses weren’t just in London, many, many were destroyed elsewhere, just never got mentioned.Delete
