How's your day?

The eleventh word 'e......c' used in that context would have had you placed on a diversity course in my last employment, if you had already attended a diversity course you would have been looking at your P45!

 

World gone mad :crazy:

The long promised warm weather is taking its time arriving here.

 

They said the wind would ease.  It's got stronger.

They said it would be really warm.  It isn't.

They said the cloud would thin.  It didn't.

 

I demand a refund!!

It's been 29C here today and getting hotter tomorrow. It's too much for me. Heaven knows how I'm going to get to sleep tonight and it's my late night down the pub. Perhaps lots of liquid is needed - it's only a quarter of a mile to walk home.

Today I went to fetche my SIL who was spending the afternoon with us. On the way there I said I would phone her, which I did. I have bluetooth in the car and asked it to call Loredana and waited to be connected. The voice that followed made me laugh so much that I was still laughing when she came out of the house to meet me. The voice said " sorry I don't know your grandmother, please check your list of contacts and adjust your settings" During the afternoon this phrase kept repeating itself and I'd start laughing again. Felt better for it though.

The heatwave arrived early Tuesday afternoon...

Despite my advancing years and ticker trouble, I love the warm weather. Even as late as 1:00 pm Monday was wondering if the promised heatwave would ever arrive. It did.. an hour or so later. Terrific. Spent most of the day lounging and pottering in the garden.

Sadly, the presence of 'Er Indoors' dictated that I keep at least some attire in place.. How quickly she has forgotten... :D

I ventured into the street late afternoon.. having donned suitable attire. A neighbour.. who thinks he's got major heart problems because a narrowed artery was detected and he had a stent fitted, before worse happened.. spent 20 minutes telling me that I (who had a massive heart attack before anything was detected.. and far too late for stenting ).. that WE should be behavingly sensibly in the heat.. because the Govt. says so. I pointed out that I was just standing about.. with a hat on..whereas he... was washing a car and sweating 'cobs'.. without a hat. "Yebbut .. I've not been lying about in it.." quoth he. "Yebbut.. I have SPF on.. you don't.." quoth I. " But I'm not lying in the Sun". quoth he...

I gave up. I'd sooner argue with a Brexiteer...

Went for a short drive out this Tuesday evening to get a bottle of wine.. At 11:00 p.m. the temp reading on my car was 28 degrees C., even after miles.

When I got back, assorted devices reading between 25 and 28 C .. indoors.

It's warm. I didn't drink the wine.. but a couple of late night G&Ts are going down very well.

These days are rare in the UK. We should revel in them.. celebrate them.. sink hedonistically into them... :)

DJ you think 28/29 is hot and you suffer. We have got 37/41 with high humidity. Its stifling. Windows open all night and still we cant sleep. I was at the hospital yesterday all morning in freezing airconditioning , when I came out it was heaven until I thawed out and began sweating even with air conditioning on in ambulance. We have to suffer this for another couple of weeks and then its suppose to drop 15 degrees.  I wonder !

I'm not complaining Nonna.  I did say I love the warm weather.  I noticed last night at about 11:)) pm when I walked out of an air conditioned supermarket. into a wall of heat.  Very unusual here especially at night.. but I'm not complaining.  I do understand though.. that it can be a real trial for some people.

Spectacular lightening show last night. Think it was sheet lightening? I love thunderstorms, comes from my grandma who loved them and we would stand at her door and watch the lightening. She told me it was giants bowling in the Sky. The thunder was the ball rolling down the alley and the lightening was the ball striking the pins. I think that is why I have never been frightened of them.  Mother Nature at her magnificent best.

 

Unfortunately my two boys don’t like them so I was up with them at 2am, then fell asleep on settee and woke up again at 4am when to went back to bed.

I hate the storms here they are really violent and they frighten me. The rain is so heavy and fast that a flood can appear in next to no time.

Interesting afternoon at Nottm Uni. I was a guest at the hearing science centre. I had several enlightening and enjoyable conversations with the researchers. Hopefully I will be asked to be involved in future research and have something to contribute. I parked at Clifton tram terminal and got the tram to Nottm station and changed for the Uni - what a superb service! Just £2.50 (cons) for a days runabout. Visited my mum's remembrance place and stood for a few moments thinking about us both being there 74 years ago when dad was away with the army. Then had a pint in the Navi, where the AEU meetings used to take place.

DJ, Think quality not quantity, also there is less of a hangover as better quality wine usually has less additives. 

Its just like a good single malt scotch vs a cheap blend.
