    Lol. will power FG, will power.
    I have trouble sleeping anyway, so whilst on a school run I heard about a sleep advertisment on the radio to help people with their sleep problems, I googled it, but not had time to read it all, so I will try and find out more over the weekend and sign up.

    7.9 this morning, not too bad after a large pasta dish last night. Feeling not so hot today but I still got up extra early to walk the dog - got in the car to go to work and the car said 20 degrees C, it said about 23 yesterday at about the same time so eeek:eek:! but today is cloudier and theres a good breeze.

    So have survived, just! Levels just kept rising all night. Bedroom didn’t go below 30 all night. No rain here either til 5 mins ago when we had a hailstorm!!!
    Have 2 yr old grandson sleeping over tonight for first time. Hopefully it will be cooler. Apparently they had a game with him last night as he wouldn’t settle without being wrapped in his little quilt. They even took the quilt out so he could just use the cover, but no it would not do. Think we may have dodged a bullet if tonight is cooler.

    Morning colanders, just woken up but haven’t looked out the window yet! Going on CFR call for the day, currently we’re buddying up based on whose car has aircon. Not my HideousSmallDiesel, so I’m in charge of the comma and defibrillator for the day. Expecting lots of Nanas down with heat issues!

    Those bunnies look gorgeous @Antje77 !

    Hope you can all stay cool and level, not keen on leaving my fridge if a house to venture outside but need must, eh?

    Morning all, woke around 6 am on 6.1, this has been strangely consistent for the last few days, but the overnight daily graphs are all a different shape.

    Anyway, cooler today, and more pleasant. Went and had a wander round a few exhibitions at the Edinburgh art festival yesterday, as it's all quite nearby. I don't know, I just don't know, I really don't know, I just don't know, the volunteers are so sweet and polite, but I find myself longing just to look at some nice amateur landscape painting by almost anyone, by the end of it all.

    I’m not entirely sure I can be bothered there, I’ve got sweaty nanas to pick up! But without blowing my own trumpet I do have three biology/biochemistry degrees...

    That was a good reminder to check the banana in the Emergency Out for the Day Snack box - it was heading to being a very sweaty 'nana so it's gone in the freezer for banana loaf making at a future date.

    We bought ice lollies! Proper ones with a hint of "I once saw a piece of fruit" in them. I'm looking forward to that later, but somehow lollies don't go with my illicit extra mug of black coffee ....


    Edited for spelling ...

    Have no fear! I really do not like the taste of rabbit, so even if they turn out to be horrible rabbits they'll get to stay until they die of natural causes :)

    I'll keep a close eye on it, and if necessary, the pen is big enough to divide. Sometimes it works, especially when they have lots of room and aren't bored, sometimes it doesn't, in which case I'll adapt their housing :)

    They have names too, now: Owie and Suus, as they probably think those are their names anyway after the car drive. Oh, wie süss is German for Oh, how cute :hilarious:

    Agree with the Turkish Lemon ice cream...its is sooooooo lush. BUT the bestest ice cream in the world has to be Joe's in Swansea. "Everything else is just ice cream"

    Afternoon all, was up and out early this morning, things to do, people to see. Had a shower of rain which wasn't enough to even wet the garden table and that's it! Every other decent shower and proper storm has passed me by; I've heard thunder, there was lightning a mile away and still no proper rain here. I loathe doing it but had to put the sprinkler on for a little while last night as even some of my tough as old boots plants were drooping dramatically.

    @helensaramay my current sensor seems to be accurate enough when things are stable but running a long time behind drops and rises. I don't know if it's been affected by the heat, or how hot I am (I know there was a discussion on here a day or two ago about hot baths and showers affecting sensors), just wondered if it's possible and if so, whether yours is behaving the same way?
