First time in what - 3 weeks? - have lost count, not a fan nor an air cooler switched on.

Sitting here in my kaftan - cool as a cucumber :-D

No rain as yet - distant rumber of thunder yesterday. Son wants light rain any hard downpour will ruin his roses. OH the same but with him it is raspberries!!

First time this morning for ages have woken up feeling fairly dry ;-)

No storms here, but feels a bit fresher and we are forecast a storm or two later. :-D

Rained in the night - now after 8am there is a downpour. Weird thought - dustmen and recyclers on their rounds - they will get soaked.

How nice the cooler temperature.

We are still waiting for the thunderstorms and now it's after 6pm it's getting much hotter than it's been today .... Caprinol soon puts paid to the spiders and earwigs used to see them run out in their hundreds ...well a lot! :-D

How hot can it get - garden sprinklers on everywhere. Expecting thunderstorms - wow

Spent yesterday cleaning out my shed - masses of spiders everywhere - my friend painted it inside and out. Good old Caprinol so quick and easy - would have loved to have painted it purple or one of the new colours but had half a tin of the old stuff.

Didn't realise I had so much gardening stuff - friend says I always have 3 of everything.

One blessing of the heat - arthritic bones don't hurt so much so a lot easier to move around and hard to each solid food.

:-D :-D
