I don't think we've had one of these threads recently.  Pop in whenever you like and let us know how you are.  

Today I'm mostly feeling uninspired... I've wanted to write for a couple of days, but it hasn't really happened.  I've been reading instead!

I'm in England, where it's excessively hot.  I went swimming earlier, which was nice.  I've had a bad headache on and off all day, and full of hay fever this evening, so I'm going to chug some meds and go to bed much earlier than I did last night (2am).

38 actual shitting degrees celsius where I am in the U.K. today and meant to be hotter tomorrow. Hottest U.K. temp on record. I just donít do heat. It can fuck off in the bin.

Fan on full blast. Iíve abandoned clothes. Had ice cream for tea. Lost count of the amount of times Iíve muttered for fucks sake under my breath. Dreaming of autumn.

35C here, which is bad enough. Ugh. The grass has died and everything else is going that way. Have also abandoned most clothing. I hate being sweaty, hate that I burn if Iook outside, hate that upstairs is virtually a sauna. Ugh. Hopefully it will be much cooler in a couple of days.

At the pool this morning, there was a guy in his 70s cheerfully wandering in and out of the SAUNA. Why?! I did point out that he could save a few quid and just stick his head outside. He chuckled good-naturedly and went back in.

Hi Ellie.  It's been a rough couple of weeks.  I was at crossroads last week and I finally made a decision pertaining to work and put a request at HR to move to a different dept.  After feeling extremely frustrated now I feel numb but life has a way of working itself out and I believe in fate.  Things happen for a reason.
Otherwise, I'm good its been super hot here and I've had the AC blasting every day now.  
I made some sockeye salmon tonight and I might have my fav french brandy little later on along with firing a hookah (double apple)

How's life?  Still way too hot here, but hopefully that will improve tomorrow.  I told my 14 year old daughter off for wearing a sweatshirt outside when it was 34 degrees C.  Seriously!!  I resented having to wear something more than short shorts and a vest top when I had to pop into work earlier!  Still, I'm enjoying relaxing tonight, crunching ice cubes and looking forward to the end of term.

AhahaÖ I bought some Tango freeze your own ice poles from B&M (like a scrubber) before the heat hit so Iíve been living off them for a few days now 😂

Feeling a bit off from the heat. Iíve just discovered that the meds Iím on make me more susceptible to heat.

Just what I fkn need 🤣

On a side noteÖ I was feeling nostalgic for winterÖ bought my first Xmas present 🤣

Take care with the ice poles.  There was this thing going round on FB recently, warning people not to put them in their vaginas.  So now you know.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that redheads are more susceptible to heat too, and not only because we burn.  I used to have an allergy to the sun, but I seem to have outgrown it.

When the heatwave was coming I bought ice cream to have with my breakfast cereal and as an evening dessert at this time.

Yesterday when I got home from work after checking in on my old mother in her sheltered bungalow, I couldn't unlock my flat door because the heat had affected the door mechanism, However a friend of one of my neighbours, who is a plumber, sprayed WD40 and got the door unlockable (made me mindful to get WD40 at the next garage shop I came across).

I have been keeping certain plants in my back garden (my foof plants - tomatoes, beans and peas being priority) watered, doing this before I settle down to indoors where for a time I might shut the blinds and the curtains and 'go as God intended' LOL until I feel much cooler in myself.

I have been going to work as normal during early part of this week, driving home with car aircon on and often open window. When the 5PM news came up on my car radio channel, I parked in a layby and listened to the news standing outside the car because outside it was cooler..

My garden has suffered terribly during this time. Despite watering twice a day a lot of plants have still burnt to a crisp.

So sad.

I'm trying not to wish it away.  I have maaaajor problems with autumn.  And again with January.  After that, things improve again.  It's hard at the moment though.  Too hot and sweaty!
