    Anyone fed up with the heatwave? 7th Jul 18 at 7:41 PM
    As above!


    I am now sick to death of the hot sticky oppressive weather that shows no sign of stopping.


    I have barely done any housework due to being a sweaty over heated mess. Working is difficult. Go outside and I burn to a crisp in minutes even with sun cream.


    Roll on the rain I really miss you as does my garden.

    Where do you live? I am on the south coast and have been downing Jack Daniel's tonight in the hope it will help knock me out when I go to bed. It is after ten at night, still baking and I am sweating like a pig (apologies for that image )!

    The heat has been concentrated in the South East, although the coastal areas should be slightly less hot. The London area is usually the worst affected.

    It has not really been a heatwave as such up here in the North, just a nice summer with a max of about 24. It is probably the first time I have prepared to go on holiday with potentially cooler weather than here for a long time. I rarely used to wear shorts up here in the freezing North but have now worn them just about every day for over a Month

    When this hot spell started back in May I thought it was quite nice because it made a change, now we are in August I am becoming weary of it, never seem to have any energy after a day at work. Evenings and weekends I am just recharging my batteries sitting in front of fans! I'm sure when the grey skies and cold come I'll be missing this weather though.

    There was an amazing ground mist this morning out on the (marshy) health whilst walking the dog, the temperature got down to as low as 11.5 C a few hours ago, which is unusual. Most nights exceeded 15 C over the past few weeks. I've got the fan on beside the open window, trying to cool the house down with the cool morning air before shutting up again.

    Love it personally. Best summer for decades. :-)
    When the sun is out, generally attitudes are better, people happier and do more.
    Brits Are stereotyped as moaners about the weather constantly, too hot, too cold, too wet. Give it a rest...
    It will be cold, dark and wet soon enough, our winters are long.

    There hasn't been a heatwave here, a bit of a dry spell maybe but certainly no heatwave.

    I'm still loving it. I'm off to Madeira in a few days for a week. The forecast there is mid 20s. So it'll be just like being at home.

    Ummm, love Autumn. Crisp clean morning air, beautiful colours and crunchy leaves. The days when you dare to leave the house without a coat for the thrill of it. You finally get to a full nights sleep as dawn is at a civilised hour.

    I predict the heatwave is over for this year.


    And an early long lasting Winter will begin.

    We had some rain today, but now it is hot again!

    By the way: there are usually no capital letters at the beginning of the seasons, so it's spring, summer, autumn and winter:

    i am not sick of the sunshine but id be glad of cooler nights - to start with i think we had constant heat for close to 6 weeks ( with a few spots of rain) - the grass everywhere was scorched and yellow looking, however in the last week or so the temperatures dropped and we had one good day where it rained ( tbh it was much needed ) for many hours ( and was glad of the change actually).

    This last week the temperatures have soared again, and we are back to 28/29 degrees and warm nights () but meant to be much cooler again tomorrow onwards. Glad of the cooler nights but have really enjoyed the clear blue sky and sunshine. It was needed after last winter.
    I like RainbowFairyDust .....
