    Pretty nice morning here now after the CRAZY thunderstorms last night, which lasted for nearly two hours, creating a bonkers sound and light show!!

    The garden's had a damn good soaking for sure! But MUCH fresher now (for the moment anyway, as it's set to get warmer later), currently 22C. Still a pretty muggy, stuffy night in the house though (after I had to shut the doors to keep the cats in), as is the norm after the walls have been baking in 30C+ heat all day, but it'll cool down in a couple of days, as long as the temps don't get above 25C.

    Just enjoying my morning cappuccino and croissant, outside in the pleasant sunshine

    Still a warm night, a little cooler, although not the difference i thought we'd get. It's still sunny and warm this morning, the rain hasnt arrived yet but is supposed to when the temp is forecast to drop to a more comfortable level

    Still no rain in this area. Maybe tonight or tomorrow. Water butts nearly empty, in fact I cleaned one the other day, no rain for the last 19 days. Feels a bit fresher today but is getting hot again, maybe 27C soon.

    Hot and sunny here - not as humid, so I will have a go at cutting the grass (well, dried out remains of grass and daisies )

    Half the sky to the south has gone very dark and there are distant rumbles of thunder. It all looks headed this way, so maybe it'll cool things down. It's been getting hot.

    Had a gentle smattering of rain about an hour ago and itís gone very dark but thatís about it so far.

    Hope it does come, as Iím intending to give the Rangey a wash at the weekend and a torrential downpour does a great job as a handy pre-wash!

    Bingo ! Been grey and cloudy and just started raining a little .....

    Actually, a few drops came down for barely a minute - ground dry. Can only think the proper rain will come later

    Still raining here thank goodness. House is still very warm from retained heat though.
