Phew - it is el-scorchio here - 33.5C in my shed at the moment - thermometer in the shade - windows & door open all night.
Decided to knuckle down and do some jobs first thing so driveway & paths weedkilled (too breezy earlier in the week), south facing mini-border deadheaded and weeded, carrots, peas, courgettes and parsley picked for tonight, bed stripped and washing on, kitchen cleaned - so far.
Have come in for a cool down and cuppa then it's back out to do a bit of a tidy up in the veg beds and cut the grass.
By then it will be lunchtime and I am hoping to put my feet up in the shade with a good book and enjoy the rest of the day. Might have to 'accidentally' turn the sprinkler on for 30 secs when I'm near enough to get caught by it - nothing like a quick spritz of cold water on a hot day
Hope the rest of you enjoy your day although it does sound like a real east / west split today. Hope nobody has any problems from the forecast thunderstorms.
Runny - sorry to hear your news - shingles is a horrible disease - hope you aren't bothered by it for too long.
Pat - hope your OH is feeling better soon & I hope you're being strict with him about hand washing etc. I made my OH wipe loo, loo handle, door handles etc etc with a cloth wrung out in dilute bleach solution when he had it. Towels etc were also very strictly 'his and hers' and he wasn't allowed to touch anything in the kitchen till he was better.
