It is good! Dealing with periods is a hassle.

I hate it when people don't understand like that.
You know yourself best!

one_step_closer 19-07-2022 01:26 PM

What are you doing with the rest of your day?

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 01:37 PM

Oooh my bauble and Teddy bear have been despatched.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 01:39 PM

Just need to put washing away and shower.

nonperson 19-07-2022 01:44 PM

Heathrow just hit 40 degrees.

I hope you're not going to your exercise class tonight (?) Beckie.

I'm coping ok with the heat. But house is a cosy 26 degrees downstairs and I'm currently sitting on the backdoor step in the shade. Not for long though, lol.

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 01:44 PM

I have to shower too. I probably stink because of the heat and I dont want to scare the tesco man.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 02:00 PM

Nope the exercise class is cancelled because of this ridiculous weather!
It's supposed to be much cooler tomorrow so glow beatz will still be on. Hopefully!

You be careful sitting outside np!

nonperson 19-07-2022 02:28 PM

Ah good. Yeah it should be back to normal life tomorrow.

I retreated pretty quickly tbh but my hair dried in like a minute =P

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 02:35 PM

Thank ****!

Do you have anything planned for the rest of the day?

nonperson 19-07-2022 02:49 PM

Nope, just lounging around really. I'm a bit bored to be honest. And not tired. Yesterday I just napped and then went to the vets.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 02:56 PM

Lounging around really is the only thing you can do in this heat!
I'm bored too.
Just put washing away

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 02:58 PM

I have showered but as soon as I dried myself I felt hot.

nonperson 19-07-2022 03:11 PM

I showered with really cold water then jumped out and stood in front of a fan. Bliss.

Now I'm a bit tired, might submit to sleep for lack of anything else to do... Or might see what's happening outside first.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 03:27 PM

I'm looking forward to a cool shower later

I'm dreading going to bed tonight
Last night was awful!

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 03:37 PM

I keep on waking up early because of the heat despite a fan.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 03:43 PM

I wake up early anyway.
Thought i would sleep in this morning because olanzapine and promethazine but nope! Up at 6:30 still

one_step_closer 19-07-2022 04:22 PM

I hope you can all have a good sleep tonight. I want the thunderstorm that is predicted by my weather app, not the no-thunderstorm that the BBC website says.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 04:26 PM

I've had a lovely cool shower.

It's supposed to start raining here at 9pm according to the weather app. Really hope so!

one_step_closer 19-07-2022 04:43 PM

How do people do cold showers?!

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:08 PM

It wasn't freezing cold. But not warm either!

We've just had a power cut AND mobile data went down.
That was a very boring and quiet 15ish minutes

nonperson 19-07-2022 05:12 PM

How random. Glad it fixed itself quickly though.

I start with a warmish shower and then reduce the temperate to as cold as I can stand. Warm showers are all steamy and ick. Only acceptable in winter.

The sun's moved so now my house is warming up and I have no curtains or blinds in the kitchen so I'll combust if I go in there. >=|

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:18 PM

Yep, whole of the town had it according to a local page on fb. Some areas still not back on.

Oh noooo!

nonperson 19-07-2022 05:24 PM

I wonder if that was extreme heat related.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:26 PM

Apparently there was a fire at one of the station thingys
Most areas aren't going to be coming back on until 7-8pm!
I was lucky!

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:33 PM

It just went off again for a few mins.
Phone signal not affected this time though!

nonperson 19-07-2022 05:43 PM

Sometimes it does that intermittently when they're working on fixing the power.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:44 PM

I think it said they're trying to redirect power to different areas or something.
It's just annoying!

nonperson 19-07-2022 05:49 PM

Power issues are very annoying.

Woo, the sun has finally gone away. BBC and Met Office aren't predicting rain here though but the managers at work were expecting it. Dunno where they got that info from. At least the temps are coming down now.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 05:58 PM

I'm feeling cooler but upstairs is a furnace!

It's 38 here now.
Thunderstorms predicted for 9pm!

Zurg 19-07-2022 06:02 PM

Bloody hell!!! How do you even survive that kind of temp???!!?!?! I would have melted by now and left only a pool of fat and coffee as a reminder of my previous and meaningless existence!!!! ;-)

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 06:07 PM

I don't think any of us are doing particularly well!

There's been quite a few random fires round here.
It is concerning to say the least!

nonperson 19-07-2022 06:22 PM

It's about 32 now according to my outside thermometer. So I've finally opened all the windows, should start cooling the house down a bit, especially upstairs.

Got no choice but to survive it, Zurg. I might be saying differently if I'd been at work this afternoon though.

There have been a couple of people die in lakes round here =/ Going swimming to cool off and getting in trouble in the water. I saw something about a fire on the news too. It's ****.

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 06:24 PM

I think tesco havent given me my pimms. At least I cant find it. I cant look for too long though. I will have to phone tesco urgh.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 06:26 PM

We are not equipped for this weather!
Its so sad that people are literally losing their lives due to the heat. I shouldn't really complain about not being able to sleep when people are actually dying

not_so_insig 19-07-2022 06:27 PM

Yet i am sure I received it but cant find where I put it.

nonperson 19-07-2022 06:39 PM

It is sad that people are dying, especially when there have been so many warnings about open water swimming in this weather. I'm trying not to be annoyed by people's utter stupidity at ignoring the risks or thinking they know better. Either way it would have been an accident so it sucks.

This whole thing on a larger scale is so sad. They're predicting a hotter than usual August now as well.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 06:48 PM

It does suck
It makes me worry for people
My mum lives near a river and there are signs in certain spots saying not to swim, but people still do.
Surprised there hasn't been any deaths there

Oh no not August too :'(

nonperson 19-07-2022 06:50 PM

Well now I'm suitably depressed. This **** is so miserable.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 07:23 PM

It really is

Storm prediction has moved from 9pm to 10pm.

nonperson 19-07-2022 07:24 PM


Cacoethes 19-07-2022 07:34 PM


Starting to get a little cloudy here. I'm excited!
It has cooled down quite a bit

nonperson 19-07-2022 07:50 PM

It wasn't proper rain, but it was at least some moisture coming from the sky. Hopefully there's more on the way. It's just made things a bit muggy now =/

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 07:54 PM

Ugh mugginess is the worst!

It's still stupidly hot upstairs :'(

nonperson 19-07-2022 07:56 PM

Have you got the windows open?

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 08:04 PM

Yep. Blinds are closed in my room though

nonperson 19-07-2022 08:17 PM

Hopefully it'll let some cool air in before you go to bed.

Thunder's started here. Just a few rumbles.

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 08:21 PM

Really hope so!

Oooh exciting!
Hopefully we'll get it next!

nonperson 19-07-2022 08:39 PM

I've just seen a lady on the news with the funniest name - Carma Hearty-Pickup

Shouldn't laugh but wth

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 08:56 PM

That is a very unique name!

Still no rain

Cacoethes 19-07-2022 08:57 PM

OH!!! I see raindrops on my window!
I think it's trying to rain!
