Still roasting here too - far too hot for me outside - 30 in the shade and there's very little of that anyway
At least we're to get some rain over the weekend which is badly needed.
I remember '76 too Woody - and I'm only 27 - what a coincidence...
It was horribly muggy like this when I was expecting second daughter 17 years ago. At least they'd changed their view about having it 'nice and warm for the babies' since I'd had the first one - it was early July and they had the heating on despite the humidity and the thunder going on outside. When we opened the windows in the ward they kept coming round and shutting them and telling us off
Glad hoghedge is fine fidget. I was watching the wasps coming for a drink at the little birdbath (seed tray filled with gravel and water) - easy to forget that insects need somewhere to drink too. There's a few nice little rocks for them to perch at the side, although the sparrows were impatiently waiting to get in for a bath as well.
