I've got a 4" desk fan, but I've had to turn it off because all it's doing now is blasting hot air in my face like a furnace. :(

This is not going to be a productive afternoon.

I haven't got a problem with the heat so much as the pollen so throat, eyes etc. Got the usual tablets working as usual but even that's struggling.

Also special mention to the cast of Farthing Wood entering my room every night, bugger off.

I have just come back from a 10 day holiday in Greece so I am quite acclimatised. Although a dull, grey, cold couple of days would be nice.
Just once I want radiation to turn something into a giant fluffy bunny, instead of the Grand Poobah of all Mirelurks.

Why oh why did I start the painting just before this blasted heatwave :evil:

Using a mist spray bottle to soak myself every few minutes while the fan is running. Helps a little but not as good as running your wrists under the cold tap for a while till you go numb.

You might be better off getting rid of the thermometer & not knowing the temperature. Probably help take your mind off it and focus on something else.

Honestly, I think I've gotten used to the temperature more this year than usual, probably due to the fairly continuous spell of warm weather we've had these last two months, but the last two days have been awful. I can't walk from the couch to the kitchen and back without feeling like I've been active for half an hour.

You’re probably right, but I like to justify my moaning with data. :lol:

With the windows open all night it’s now at 23c.

I am not, but do have a funny one for you.

I live just outside Farnborough, famous for nothing much bar the biennial air show. With this interminable heat, every morning sees every openable door or window flung open to get the dubious benefits of the mosquito-farts that pass for a refreshing breeze just now. I occasionally work from home.

Today is one such day. Much of our corporate comms is done over Skype, as we have people located across the UK and India, so many of the meetings that make up my day are done via a headset.

Today:

Me: "So yes, if you can provide me with <EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW>, that OK?"
Them: "WTF?"
Me: "Sorry, that was a jet fighter buzzing my house about 50 feet overhead. I said can you <FFFFFFSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM>... Oh for god's <NOISEOFAMASSIVE8ENGINEDRUSSIANMONSTERPLANEFORABOUT2MINUTES"
Them: "Sorry Ian, we can't hear anything you are saying"

Rinse and repeat. Fucking sun. Fucking planes. Fucking airshow.
