Jaye’s Days… 30 degrees, and rising!

Today will be the hottest so far, I am reliably informed.

It’s lunchtime, and the temperature is already 30 degrees, so God knows what it will be later.

I don’t do heat very well, never have, probably because when I was a child, I fell asleep in the garden on a very hot day and woke up with sunstroke. Not something I would recommend!

I tried braving it and ventured out of doors yesterday. I survived but felt really ill. I have no energy, and my brain struggles with even the simplest tasks.

I thought I could make headway with the editing if I stayed indoors and drank plenty of water. I have half of a newsletter awaiting completion too, but everything might have to wait until the heat takes a hike.

On the bright side, we are promised thunderstorms and rain on Monday, and I cannot wait.

Neither can all my plants! We have a hosepipe ban in place, so all I have for them is the water in our rain butt. I hope it lasts until Monday, as it would be a shame to watch them shrivel up and die after how well they have done.

They’re not even red yet!
These were supposed to be a dwarf species!

As you can see, the plants are doing better than me,

so does anyone know a good rain dance that works!

Time to Cool off?

This is for all the hot weather spots in the world… here in UK, ours will hit us hard on Sunday, so we will be visiting this beautifully cool place all day! (not really, of course, but it would be lovely!)

Stay indoors and stay cool, everybody!

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a stretch of empty road. There is a man in running shoes taking a leaping jump over the yellow dividing line on the road.

” Good God… this tarmac is bloody hot!”
