    It's so hot!

    Just come in from the garden and it is scorchio!

    I don't know if it is because I'm not used to it but I had to wear a hat while I did the crossword.

    The sun feels really fierce with no breeze in our south facing garden.

    Had to come in, it got a bit too much.

    Mrs has come in now and Dot is laying on the tiled kitchen floor, she's a bit overcooked.

    Anyone else scorching?
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Lovely in Suffolk. Bit breezy but hot enough to dust off old faithful.



    Oh yeah!

    Sitting on my South facing Central London balcony. It’s so hot that I have had to refill my pint glass twice in the last hour! What is a man to do?

    Oh I know, continue sit out in it, drink more beer and complain about the heat. How British! :)

    Just been out to clear some dog poo. No sun at all, very windy and certainly no warmer than yesterday. I don't think the beaches around here will be busy today.

    Cleaned up the BBQ this morning. Then G&T while the sea bass was grilling gently.

    It is glorious here in Hertfordshire have spent the last few hours sorting out my garden, fixing the fence and cleaning out my sorry looking pond. Lots more to do but time for a break... feeling very fortunate we have a bit of outdoor space

    It was supposed to be 20c here today, is that why I'm wearing a fleece top and have just topped up the log burner?

    It's so hot!

    Roast chicken dinner just finished on the deck, and it is still 22c. Perfect.

    We hit 20+ in our south-facing back garden. Still, a little chilly due to the wind. In all: perfect. Next few days will be hotter that today - and less windy. According to windfinder.com this will last until Easter Sunday. Nice!

    Pressure washer is tested. So first thing tomorrow, I'll be fighting the stained tiles and bricks.

    I was working in the garden, sheltered and sunny. Had to get a neck scarf as it was getting too much on the back of my neck.

    Hope it warms up a bit for you in MA John!

    My flight to the US on 23rd has just been cancelled. No surprise so I'll have to re book "hopefully" for later in the year.
    Cheers,
    Neil.
