OMG do not know what the electric bill is going to be with 2 air coolers and fan going.

That's a very good point ChrisofWessex! No fire on etc... but fans & air coolers on! So, can't escape these high electric bills! :-( However, having said that, probably still works out cheaper than having a fire on, or other electric stuff on, we hope! :-D

Sales of fans, drinks, stuff for the garden, etc... are going to Rocket, B&Q will do very well! :-D Time to buy Kingfisher shares! :-D BRITVIC soft drink sales will Rocket too! Good idea to buy those shares now!!!

After a few really hot days (and extremely uncomfortable nights), today was much cooler, not cold, but just nice without the intense sun beating down.

We had a barbecue this evening, and lit the fire pit.
We have just come indoors, and certainly doesn't see as oppresive as the last few nights have been.
Hopefully, I will sleep tonight.

Well, it's St Swithun's day on 15th, Will it rain?
I'm not too bothered about the hot weather, I just keep the blinds closed when I'm indoors..
Went out today - and, when I got back, I hand washed the clothes I had been wearing - bit sweaty :-|
But they were dry within the hour :-D

I am pleased summer has arrived at last. Its just that it goes from one extreme to the other in a short time. We are not used to it any more. I remember summer when I was younger being hot and sunny and winter with lots of snow.I will enjoy it while it lasts.

Yes humidity is bad news, especially inside at night! :-( Don't think I would like to live in a HOT country!
