Home office faces west(ish) so we get no sun through the door/s until 4/5pm. In winter it's permanently chilly as a result. I'd take this unusually warm weather each and every day, if I could.

40 days without rain now in some parts of Essex. That must be fairly unusual.

I'll put it into perspective it's been 23 days since it rained in wet and dreary Manchester. That's absurd

Personally I love it.

I have not had rain at home for must be 30/40 days, I do not have grass now, donkeys & horses would love it. Excluding one part of my lawn is very green, a lush green, I need to get my deeds out, as I think I must have a leak from a water pipe or I have a secret "lawn waterer person" popping over at night.

We actually had rain in the my corner of the north-west last night, heavy as well. Was nice to see, a pleasant 16 degrees this morning, everything got a nice clean. However my office is still 28 degrees this morning.

It was 40 here yesterday (104) and I was out in it all day coaching a bunch of kids, many of whom were ungrateful little chuffers...

:lol:

Back to Ecuador on Tuesday evening where it was a lovely 15 (60) yesterday and apparently won't get above 14 (58) today....

can't wait..I've had enough ...

Hey guys,

Just watched a YouTube video from The King of Random on how to make your own air con unit. It's based on a Household Hackers video.

Looks like you can make one quite cheaply. . Might do it myself?

After the seemingly endless Winter we had, I am loving it.
Linen Trousers/Shirt to work each day and (internally) smirking at the fat, sweaty whiners I share the office with. Shorts in the evening sitting on the Patio reading a good sci-fi/fantasy/warhammer book or three until 10pm. Plus an ice cold Cider. Taking the Dogs out for walks and dips in the River. Having BBQ's with the neighbours almost every weekend during the World Cup.

Anyone not liking this Summer needs their head checked.

The heat can **** right off. Not slept properly in over a week. Top it off took the mrs dog for a walk in ainslie wood in chingford came across a tree on fire, nipped back sharpish to get some watering cans but by the time I got back it had moved inside it too far. Feel bad for wasting the fire brigades time because it wasn’t the biggest blaze but being in the middle of a forest it really needed putting out.

You ALL need to buy an air con unit. Get one in October or November when people are getting shot of them cheap.
