    Interestingly, it's now considerably cooler outside than it is inside the house, especially with the lovely wee breeze that's whipped up [fart-gas free], so I'm typing this whilst relaxing on the lounger in the backyard.

    As soon as I open the back door of the house and step inside, you can feel the stuffy warm air hit you - somewhat like when you've spent hours travelling to a hot destination in an air-conditioned plane, then get out at the airport...

    And that's without venturing upstairs! Not been there since Wednesday...

    It just shows how much heat thick sandstone walls retain, after they've been baking in 30°C+, for over a day. I don't have the same problem in my old man's bungalow, down the road, which was built in the 1930s... His house has modern double-glazed UPVC windows and thick carpets throughout, but it's still cooler!

    I saw an interview with that Shake 'n' Vac lady, where she said that on the day of filming she had really bad flu, and felt like shit. What a trooper! Can't remember what programme it was, probably not Panorama. The interview was many years ago - my memory lets me down all the time, but I always remember the important stuff

    A change in the weather, quite blustery with some light rain. Feels a lot cooler than yesterday.

    Yeah, they don't make adverts like that anymore - although some would say thank fuck! She reminds me a bit of that bint out of Butterflies...

    Anyway, it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better now!! Nice fresh, cool air coming through the window, humidity feels way down on yesterday, and 17C, with the sun still out... MY kind of weather!!

    It's still 22C indoors though, but that'll start to come down, as the bricks cool from the lower outside temperature, and tonight I can look forward to my normal 9 hours of undisturbed sleep!

    Still to hit us here, and I hope we get it... It's 20C and a little sticky, but nowhere near like yesterday or the day before. Tomorrow's supposed to be cooler again though, which is welcomed

    If only, when we get a hot summer's day, it would stay in the mid 20s, which for me, accompanied by just a little cool breeze, is perfect - and rather pleasant for being indoors or outdoors. No-one 'needs' to bake in 30C-odd degree heat. I've never understood the attraction, and for prolonged periods with high humidity, it's very unhealthy.
