That is a bit of a trek!

My cmht is about a 25-30 min walk.
On roads with absolutely no shade!
Really not looking forward to it

Stellata 25-07-2019 09:28 AM

Do you have a hat?

one_step_closer 25-07-2019 09:29 AM

Ick, heat. I'm wearing my socks with snowflakes on them, maybe it will have an effect!

I hope you all get on ok today.

Stellata 25-07-2019 09:30 AM

How come you're wearing socks, Lindsay???!!!


one_step_closer 25-07-2019 09:34 AM

I couldn't ever not wear socks! It would feel weird in shoes I think. What kind of shoes do you wear without socks?

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 10:00 AM

No I don't have a hat :(

I always wear socks too!

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 10:05 AM

I bought a pair of sandals, I was really pleased with them. They were pretty and comfy. But I discovered I can't walk in them for more than 10 minutes without getting blisters.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 10:08 AM

How annoying tamo!

not_so_insig 25-07-2019 10:12 AM

It must be the day for having appointments in the heat as I have a psych appointment today. I am not looking forward to it. I have drank an can of monster and had a shower in an vain attempt to wake me up. I so didn't want to wake up this morning.

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 10:48 AM

Well done for getting up insig.

I don't have plans today. Just to stay out the heat. We've put up the gazebo in the garden and yesterday it was quite nice to sit under it with a book. I don't know if it will be too hot today.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 10:52 AM

Staying out of the heat is a good plan!

Eska 25-07-2019 12:01 PM

I'm wearing three layers... T shirt, uniform top and zip up hoodie thing. Plus black jeans, socks and shoes! It's ok in work though.

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 12:07 PM

How on earth can you wear all that!

Eska 25-07-2019 12:10 PM

I'm just sitting at a desk inside, it's not like I'm sun or moving around or anything. It's fine!

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 12:12 PM

Even our downstairs rooms are super hot, fans aren't cooling the bedrooms. Does your office have air conditioning?

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 12:24 PM

What about when you have to go home eska??

My living room is usually very good at keeping cool but I am feeling the heat today!

Eska 25-07-2019 12:30 PM

Nope, no air con.

My journey home isn't long - fifteen minute walk, ten minute train, fifteen minute walk - so will probably be fine! If I find I am hot I'll take off the jacket and uniform top.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 12:34 PM

Fair enough!
Hope you have a good day!

Got to leave in an hour.
Not looking forward to this walk!

Eska 25-07-2019 02:05 PM

Hope it's going ok Beckie

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 02:06 PM

I made it to the cmht! Took me over 30 mins today.
Genuinely thought I was going to collapse!

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 02:15 PM

Well done everyone making journeys today!

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 02:43 PM

There is now a bus stop outside the cmht!
(And also a pub, random as cmht is in the middle of nowhere aside from a new housing estate)
Don't even care that I have to wait 20 mins for the bus, I am not doing that walk again!

Eska 25-07-2019 02:49 PM

Sounds exhausting Beckie! Bus sounds like a good call.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 02:50 PM

Yep! There is absolutely 0 shade from here to home as well.
Its awful!

nonperson 25-07-2019 03:52 PM

It was 41 degrees in the glasshouse I was working in before lunch.

Don't know what you're all complaining about. =P

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 03:55 PM

That's insane np!!

not_so_insig 25-07-2019 03:55 PM

I am boiling! It's been over 30 degrees today. It was thundering and raining whilst I was waiting for the bus. Thankfully I was under cover at the time.

nonperson 25-07-2019 03:56 PM

I know! Wasn't in there very long, thankfully.

Started early and finished early so I'm now sat on the sofa while my mind and body recovers.

nonperson 25-07-2019 03:58 PM

Oooh the Met Office says this is officially the second hottest day ever!

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 04:15 PM

Must be relieved to have finished early!

I can believe that!
Still melting in my usually cool house

nonperson 25-07-2019 04:18 PM

It's 26.5 degrees in my living room. It feels super cool compared to outside. At least the glaring sunshine has gone away now.

I'm so sleepy. =(

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 04:19 PM

Definitely cooler than outside still!


tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 04:21 PM

I thought the rain would cool the garden down but no.

nonperson 25-07-2019 04:34 PM

I want to nap and bath but my neighbour might be popping round at any time to drop off her house key. >.<

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 04:49 PM

It rained for like a minute earlier

Ah that's annoying np

not_so_insig 25-07-2019 05:29 PM

I had a cold shower before.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 05:34 PM

I've just had a cold shower

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 05:36 PM

I hate showers so I just have to stay hot.

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 05:43 PM

I don't like showers either but I did need to have one

Ugh I feel all sick and headachey

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 05:45 PM

Do you think it's the heat?

nonperson 25-07-2019 05:52 PM

Hope you're ok, Beckie. Have you had enough to drink today?

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 05:59 PM

Probably the heat

I think I'm drinking enough!
Maybe I should drink more in case it is that

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 06:06 PM

It won't do any harm!

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 06:25 PM


What's everyone up to this evening?

Eska 25-07-2019 06:26 PM

I am chilling out watching House

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 06:32 PM

I'm watching Friends. And L is making quorn bolognese :)

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 06:33 PM

I love House

Pretty much all trains have been cancelled here and from London. And lots of delays because of the heat.
I hope it's sorted by the time I have to get trains tomorrow!

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 06:36 PM

My mum is stuck on a train

Cacoethes 25-07-2019 06:38 PM

Must be awful
Hope there's air conditioning at least

tamobhuuta 25-07-2019 06:40 PM

She said yesterday the train was air conditioned, hopefully today's is.
