    Morning clickers. A couple of days of cooler weather here in this little corner of Essex…25-26 degrees – but still no rain. If it can hold off until 8 o’clock tomorrow night that would be good as it’s Finn’s 14th birthday party. I can’t believe my little boy is 14 years old, nearly as tall as his dad and has size 10 feet! Time flies. It’s…

    Evening clickers. Blimey it’s hot. Not getting much gardening done apart from pulling up the odd weed or 3 and watering. Have seriously lost my mojo this year and the heat is sapping what little I have left. Nothing very exciting going on here apart from my niece who is currently in labour in Newquay! Come on baba, I am waiting to be a great…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Got to get my bum in gear and do a few jobs in the garden in preparation for the birthday boy’s party on the 14th and actual birthday on the 16th. Luckily the green bin has just been emptied so I have somewhere to stash the weeds. No plans today, as such, just the normal stuff. Roll on the 6 weeks holiday. Spent Sunday and…[Read more]

    • Hello Jenn :-) I feel for Finn re maths – my best friend in my class used to coach me – I hated it and still avoid sums when they crop up! Good luck to him on Thursday :fingers-crossed:

    Sooo pretty, Ali. I brought my one with me when we moved…it survived for a year and then carked it :-( I was so sad as it was a present from the OH. The leaves are so beautiful when they unfurl – a gorgeous heart shaped burgundy. It will look stunning in your garden :good:

    Morning clickers. A bit of respite from the heat today – only 25-26° instead of the 30-32 we have been having :-) Oh is currently on the phone sorting out an insurance claim – he dropped Finn off at school today and popped in the shop and a great hulking Land rover Discovery slipped its hanbreak and rolled into the front of the car whilst it…[Read more]

    Morning clickers from a baked, toasted, frazzled & fried and slightly crispy round the edges, Essex. Everything here is suffering apart from the weeds but it is too hot to sort them out. I will be chalking this year up to experience! Being in the driest part of the country does have its benefits sometimes (winter) but now, not so much.…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) been in a shady spot reading one of the Merrily Watkins series. Very pleasant. Pointless touching the weeds when the rest looks a bit done in :confused: Have a lolling/lolly day :lol:

      • Hi ladies….I have been doing a bit of gardening and a tiny bit of HW on a evening…not good working weather…A wittle shower would be lovely, or a storm ;-)

    Happy birthday lovely ladies @cilla @shedsue
    Hope you both have a lovely day :present: :cake: :drink: :rose:

    Not doing all of that today K, not one to over exert myself during this weather – touching 30 on the thermometer here :confused:

    • Thank goodness for that Jenn, I was almost feeling guilty about lounging about in the shade, note “almost” :lol: Aye, it’s nearly that here too, phew. :cool:

    Afternoon clickers. Just come in for lunch. I have been doing a bit of tidying out the front and sweeping the drive in order to get the pressure washer out. Then I can do the windows and blast the soffits in preparation for a quick touch up round the front door. Blimey, it’s hot though…. :notacloudinsight: Enjoy your sunny day :good:

    • Afters Jenn, just stopped as the sweat is pouring out of me, and urgently need water before I keel over! Do be careful, tis blistering! :good:

    • Afternoon Jenn and Karen :-) definitely hot – though we had thick cloud early on! HAGA :-)

      • Blistering Jane, a bit of cloud at the market would have been useful, was it good?

    I forgot about that – when we go to Westport we are always surprised at how light it is at night time :-)

    • :lol: And I’m further North again. Only a few hours of “darkness” at this time of year. :-)

  • Jenn posted a new activity comment 3 weeks ago

    Yep, enjoy it while it is here, Jenny – even if it is from the sun lounger rather than doing (like me :-) )

    Evening all. Managed to dodge any gardening by changing the beds and then going shopping as Finn needed a new maths set – he got a yellow card because his protractor was broken :confused: I will do better tomorrow ;-) Hope you are all managing OK in this heat. I need an early night too, so shall go to bed in the daylight! Sleep well everyone,…[Read more]

    • Sleep well Jenn, go to bed in the daylight? Been doing that for weeks, :lol: it’s still light here till well after 11pm ;-)

    This time 14 years ago I was nearly a month into a surprise admission, stuck on the live-in maternity ward of the Rosie Hospital in Addenbrookes in a lovely pair of full length surgical stockings due to pre-eclampsia, being driven demented by the heat and lack of air. I honestly thought I was going to go insane. It makes my currant moaning seem…[Read more]

    • know what you mean Jenn, I ended up on 1976 in Leeds Maternity Hospital with high blood pressure – it was quite awful – think I’m going to enjoy this summer so far though, just to be able to put shorts and tee shirt on and not be cold and wet – great

    Morning clickers. Hoping to drag myself out of this gardening fug by forcing myself to do a bit of pottering today and getting the garden kind of straight so I can sit in it and read with a nice cool drink – the plants are suffering in this heat and dryness although the weeds seem to have no trouble growing. We have 4 baby robins down the side…[Read more]

    Evening all – I’m going to say it – it’s too hot for me today :lol: 28 degrees here in this little corner of crispy Essex. Haven’t even been outside to put the recycling in the bin. Will venture out later to give the plants a drink but I have not been in the mood for a scorcher today :lol: Poor OH is in London manning a stall at a business…[Read more]

    • Evening Jenn, I refuse to complain about it – yet. ;-) Your poor OH though, :bad: and I’d have been indignant too! Yip, lots of watering on the cards for everyone I think. Enjoy your cooler evening watering. :good:
