    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.

    We lived in Peyia for about 3 years. July and August were oppressive, particularly the humidity. So while Brits were going there on holiday, we'd returnto UK for an English summer.

    In Scotland the weather is beautiful, not oppressive. People are outside enjoying the sunshine.

    I went on holiday to Cornwall 6 years ago and it rained every day and I said then that I would never again holiday in the UK - but now I just might!
    Treat everyday as your last one on earth! and one day you will be right.

    A 'dry spring', Cepheus?! In all my life I have never known as much rain in the spring as this year! Did you mistype?

    I did before typing. Except for a few upland areas which received average rainfall, it was much drier than normal.



    However, I noticed that it drizzled on far more days than normal over the spring, it must not have been very heavy, spread out over many days.

    It's been hotter than the hinges of hell today, although it's been overcast. The worst aspect though is the claggy feeling, although TBH I prefer it warm and dull, rather than full on sun. I've been in far hotter temperatures, but somehow it never seems as bad for some reason.

    I'm not a fan of hot weather but I am trying to embrace it, I am trying really hard. I think I have the summer version of SAD because I feel lethargic, depressed, tearful and I'm not sleeping.


    But I have to get used to it as we have got it till the end of July, depending on where you read weather updates.

    I didn't mind it in 1976, but I was young then and enjoyed the sunshine.

    Now it doesn't agree with me at all; it just makes me feel awful and I seem to get heat bumps even when I don't stay outside.

    I like it around 20/21 degrees and not humid.

    Just wish we could have some nice steady rain for the garden.

    I completely agree with the difficulty in sleeping in this heat, it's horrible

    We Brits always complain about our rubbish summers, I'm mindful of that and doing everything I can not to moan. I just really, really need a couple of day's respite. When this sort of heat goes on for more than a week I can't sleep.

    A thunderstorm would sort everything out.

    "Least surprising post in this thread" alert.

    It has been overcast with occasional light showers today in the Fort William area.

    Thanks, I knew you'd all be worried!

    We seemed to have a lot of rain in the winter and cold, I am not surprised we get a warm dry summer to balance things out.

    Was really muggy yesterday seem a bit better today.

    There is a Muggy in Love Island apparently, I expect you all know that though.

    It's horrible. I'm not at all a hot-weather person and I can't be doing with these temperatures - it's currently 32 degrees upstairs so I'm sitting outside for as long as possible. The only problem with that is that there are awful biting things this year, I've been bitten to billy-o and I'm currently nursing a bite from something that's caused my ankle to swell like a balloon I know we're not supposed to grumble about the weather but a bit of fluctuation would be nice. My one consolation is that the kids break up soon so if anything's going to make it rain, that will!
