It looks like today is going to be the hottest day of the year and I can well believe it.
Went to bed shortly after midnight last night, feeling hot and bothered and not even bothering to cover myself with a duvet, and before anyone says it (because I know how some of your minds work) I did have decorum and wear boxers if nothing else!
But I got up around Seven AM this morning and still felt hot and bothered (although to be fair, some of that may well have been tiredness) and was worried about whether or not to water the plants outside because it was already fairly baking outside.
And like yesterday, I don't like to be far from a bottle of water, squash, or even Lipton Ice Tea (which I have developed a fetish for).
But we can be thankful for some mercies. It doesn't seem to be so consistent as it was in 1976, over a long period of time. It certainly didn't seem to bother me then.
