One of the best things about my new job is that the air conditioning in the office actually works.  The old office had been partitioned in such a way that it had no thermostat, therefore the temperature was most closely related to what was happening outside.  in this weather it will be sticky and no-one will be able to do anything.

I made the most of the weekend's sun by painting outside.

Painting in white, in a sunken pit. I don't own any sunglasses.

All I could see was a brilliant white glare, the painting was a little uneven.  :-\

On that forecast, I read the moon as "Waxing Gibbons 91% visible"  :o - I've spent tooooooooooo long following the Teethgrinder threads, haven't I?  :facepalm:

It rained here today (though it waited until I was on my bike this evening to do so - was dry for most of the day). It's forecast to rain tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, as well. Sometimes I'm so glad I moved to western Scotland. ::-)

Forecast for 38 degrees here on Saturday.

My cycling chum here has a full-day pass for a long ride but in that heat it's not possible I think.

Annoying.

16C here, at 06:00, 20C by the time I got to work (07:30).

It is going to be hot, the aircon doiesn't work in the office and the windows only open a little way!

Ice creams might be in order....

This is our first summer in the new air-conditioned office block. Now we'll find out how good it is :)

The only spare time I'm going to have for a ride this week is going to be tomorrow lunchtime - suncream and extra water in the saddlebag methinks! Or just ride to a pub with a beer garden...

Walked to work this morning, it was glorious.

Not sure it will be as nice walking back tonight, though!

Got out at 05:30, it was on the cool side of comfortable.  Did a 30k loop to take in a pâtisserie, came home with croissants.

Pleasant just now, 25° with a bit of a breeze. We're only in for 35° today, but 38°/39° at the weekend. Worried for the 98-yr-old Inlaw Paw.

Did anyone watch the 6 o'clock news yesterday? I definitely heard Fiona Bruce say "scorchio". Fast Show speak is now officially part of the English language  :thumbsup:.

25°C On the ride to work was a bit of a shock to the system. Were only supposed to reach 28°C by mid afternoon. 8) Yellow alert for Thunderstorms round here this afternoon.

Some very lumpy rain came down a few minutes ago and set off the burglar alarms that weren't going off already.

30C indoors here.
I have 3kg excess ice bought for a party last month.
Glad I kept it.

The scorchiosity is making my desktop computer overheat.  The poor thing needs water cooling or less overclocking.  So do I.
