OK, this is getting ridiculous...
I'm sat at my computer, writing this blog entry in my underpants, because it's 30 degrees centigrade in my house, despite all the windows and doors being open and fans on full pelt. Even my PC is reporting unwonted internal temperatures of 41!
In Stourport-on-Severn, on this record breaking midst heat wave Wednesday, both my car and the digital thermometer in my office saw 40 degrees centigrade / 104 Fahrenheit being exceeded!
(And yes, the external probe was in the shade)
The officials didn't report it quite that high; more like 36.3 in London, but how can you argue with a Maplin £14.99 digital thermometer compared to the Met Office's high tech gadgetry eh? Pfff, I ask you!
Either way, it's certainly very different to the nipple hardening -30 degrees C I experienced in the Artic Circle, northern Finland, earlier this year!
It's actually getting quite oppressive now, and I've started using some hints from this useful guide here!
A One Off Summer Sight:
On the way home from work, I spied many a broken down vehicle, presumably because of the heat, but the best thing I saw was a minor smash between two cars at an island, close to my home. Not too out the ordinary eh, but the car worse off and obviously at fault was full of women in bikinis!!!
Honestly, there were five scantily clad girlies (not that I looked that closely of course :]) all stood around inspecting the damage of the car infront. I almost inadvertently left the road myself, while thinking, 'if I'm going to be involved in an accident myself, please let it be like that!'
"Now if Carlsberg made car accidents, they would probably be the best car accidents in the world!"
Today, I'm Most Angry About: A fellow circuit trainer jokingly (but truthfully) pointing out that I had only done 10 repetitions of a particular exercise instead of 12 specified by the instructor. The instructor overheard her say this to me and made the entire class do the whole 12 again and announce to everyone what happened and that it was all my fault! Grrr and I pay him for this too - LOL - You can tell he's ex army!
