The heatwave arrived early Tuesday 

 

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.

£14:50 !!!!  A bit rich for an old wino like me.

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.

Well, the bricklayer turned up at 7.30 this morning. Don't think he will last very long in the heat today. We are having an orangery built and just hoping for no delays because I am booked for a fishing trip to the highlands early Sept.

Just reflecting on yesterdays tram ride from Clifton and seeing the huge changes around Wilford and the Meadows.

Dads allotment by the railway embankment, Iremongers pond and Hapenny bridge that we used to jump off as kids.

Surprisingly, most of that is still there.

 

There are still allotments in the area; Iremongers pond is still there; and the Ha'penny bridge is still there - in modified form - because the trams go over it.

Went to let the boys out this morning and who was sitting in the middle of the floor in my side room? Brock the beast. So he has got into my kitchen, trekked across it, luckily not turned left but gone straight on. Got the boys outside without them trying to eat him (yuk) and then went back to where he was. He reacted by turning towards me, (aren’t they supposed to run away) and there we stood for a bit.

 

We had a discussion about this situation (he wasn’t very talkative just twitched occasionally) and have come to a compromise. He can catch all the flies that venture into that room but he is not allowed into the house. He is not allowed to go into the dog food bags that are in there and when I come into the room he must disappear into his hidey hole and not come out until I have left. He is not allowed to have friends over and will not be getting a key. If he sticks to this I will ignore him but if he doesn’t I will be chasing him again with my trusty broom (will be able to get him out the door now) and turfing him into next doors garden. 

He gave me a long hard stare and then (very fastly) scuttled under the tumble dryer.

 

I bet he was laughing as he went as he has now got loads of places to hide if I have to chase him. Don’t know which is worse knowing where he is or not knowing.

Stav - for a moment there  I thought you had got a badger in the kitchen! You don't mess with badgers.

I'm proud of you, SG. They can live for years, you know.

 

I dont like them but they have as much right to live as I do.

I don’t like them at all but would not kill one if I can avoid it (must admit I am like that with most things anyway, wasps being the occasional exception) they do consume flies after all so can’t be all bad. 

 

He hasn’t done bad out of the deal, has somewhere warm and dry to live with food as well. So hopefully we can co-exist if he obeys the rules. Didn’t know they lived for a while, perhaps I should have mentioned rent or would I have had to declare him on my council tax form as a lodger?

Get him to sign a tenancy agreement! 

 

I have an eccentric friend who, long before concerns about CFCs, wouldn't have aerosol cans in the house. Spiders were encouraged to spin webs as a natural means of fly disposal. Well, I said he was eccentric!  He respected the lives of all creatures and all do have a purpose...though I'm not too sure about homo sapiens.

My sister in law years ago had a cricket that lived in the cantina. She always talked to it but never saw it until one day it jumped out of hiding and it was white having never seen daylight. She was really sad when it no longer sang to her.

Bad start today. Implant processor went bang so now completely deaf. Just hoping that Uni Hospital Birmingham can fix it today, otherwise it will be a very quiet w/e. The building project is going well and the walls are now head high. Just hoping that the brick work can be finished by midweek and the skip, mixer and cement removed. Bloody cement gets everywhere!

Hope you sort your implant PP although there are times when I could with something similar. Selective deafness doesn't always work in this house.

If I remember correctly he disliked some of the posts at that time and said he was leaving the forum.

Yes he said he didn't like how things had turned out as he joined because the site was about Nottingham.

Unfortunatey we lost a lot of members during that time, but so pleased that some have returned after the storm.
