  1. Feeling toasty out there! Washing is drying sooo quick
  2. Completed the worst ever school run in 7 years here. Was 36.4 C in Faversham walking back. Pushing the double pram 3 miles whilst pregnant (yes I do love a baby) it was a killer. Ive guessed the top temp to be 38.9 C here this week but I really think it will be higher now. Crazy crazy hot. Really feel for those suffering! Get those cold flannels on you and sit in front of a fan asap!
  3. I feel ya Dami! I did see your other post and had to post my agreement on this one. its really hard for me personally to see this summer (so far) for what it is... fantastic. I’m a heat lover, sunbathe as much a poss and usually long for the melting hot days of summer. However, this year I’m currently 7 months pregnant, and have a toddler I can honestly say I have never in my life suffered with the heat like I am now. I walk the eldest 2 to school and back everyday which is a 5 Mile round trip and on a couple of occasions I’ve actually cried where it’s made me feel so ill. I feel miserable most days and stay indoors as much as possible. It’s awful. Thank God they break up on Tuesday. I didn’t understand before how people could moan about lovely sunny weather and heat but now I do. I wake up every morning and come in here to see what’s in store for the day and feel panic creep in when I know it’s going to be another hot one, seriously. So for all those suffering, I feel you! Worryingly, something I have never seen before is happening outside my door. The trees in the park are losing their leaves. I’m guessing this is from lack of water. I’ve never seen this before, it’s July yet looking like Autumn out there. It’s going to be a strange Autumn if there’s hardly any leaves on the ground as they’ve lost them already!
  4. Morning all, A nice covering here in Faversham. Not sure of measurements as I haven’t been out with the trusty ruler yet. Woke up at 1 and was not happy to see hardly any snow on the ground. Stayed up til 3 with the baby and still nada. Woke up to the alarm at 5 and we had been blessed Hasn’t stopped snowing since. Schools are open but mummy’s called an official snow day. It probably won’t snow for another 5/6/7 years so I’m letting them enjoy it. I’ll spend the day educating them in this mysterious thing they call Snow and the weather. They’ve already gone out with their step dad to Tesco for carrots and coal I used all the carrots last night making soup OH set off for his yard in Maidstone and they called as he got to the end of the road and said don’t bother.. result! Anyway, Enough of my waffle... I hope everyone either has snow, gets snow and stays safe and enjoys it Pics from Faversham this morning...
  5. Afternoon all, i haven’t posted in a long time but I’ve been reading the mad thread for a while now and I’m super excited about what is in store for us (hopefully) next week! We haven’t seen any snow on the ground since 2013 here in Sunny Faversham and even then, it was so poor I just about managed to scrape together a 6inch snowman with raisins for eyes and buttons before that it was 2010. So although some parts of Kent have indeed seen laying snow, some of us are starved! 1000000000% ready for lamppost watching and spending hours gazing out the window
  6. Lovely heavy snow in Faversham! It's been years since we've seen a flake.
  7. not sure if this has been posted? but here is a good pic showing how close the fissure is getting to the glacier https://twitter.com/RUVfrettir/status/507962994626945024/photo/1
  8. morning all, I have to say I really am enjoying this thread. Been perched in here reading and learning Found a great link this morning to some stunning pictures of the fissure eruption and had to share with you http://photos.gudmann.is/#!/index/G0000VHvgRsUlb5M

  12. The trigger mechanism was that it had passed over the storm shield that holds strong in this little corner of our island and it thought right, now we're good to go lol. I was woken at 5 something by lightning app, shot out of bed only to find that it fired up just past us. A bit frustrating although I enjoyed a nice peaceful couple of hours alone before the kids woke up good luck to everyone today fingers crossed for some juicy storms. Blue sky peeping through cloud here in Fav
  13. without speculation RP this thread would still be on page 1 so I rekon we're alright haha
  14. I know, they could also be part of the well executed plot though. Judging by how Malaysia Airlines operate, they wouldn't know if any had gone missing for at least a month. I just saw something very interesting...on CNN someone spotted something on the tomnod site. Link to story http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1105907 I have to say out of all the markings I've seen lately this is the most interesting. Debris field is large and part does resemble a fuselage. Could the public really be first to find it before the authoritys? http://www.tomnod.com/nod/challenge/#malaysiaairsar2014/map/62895
  15. IF there was crew involvement, how do we know that plane wasn't full to the brim with fuel or not? it could theoretically have been tanked to the max. Although it could've easily made it to Diego Garcia though even without 'extra' fuel. It truly is the most puzzling thing I have ever seen!
  16. He does. He spends all his time on it too apparently. He is a geeky guy, loves planes, loves life, loves cooking and spends a lot of time on his FS. I haven't seen much on the younger co-pilot Here is his FS anyway
  17. To or towards? That wouldn't fit in with an extra 4-5 hours flying time though? 4-5 hours would take them way further. Its at a point where you just don't know what to believe, all the quotes from sources are officially denied and contradict eachother. I hope they find it soon wherever it may be
  18. I've been totally obsessed by this. I cannot imagine the unbearable agony those families are in not knowing. In this day and age you just don't expect a huge plane to just go missing. The reporting has been shambolic and the denial of every report by the Malaysians makes this look very fishy indeed. 4-5 hours flying time from where the plane was suposedly last know (or thereabouts) can also take the plane here... I've no idea why they would be headed here but perhaps it could've been hijacked and ordered to here, shot down? crashed short? I have a feeling we wont ever know the truth.
  19. here we go...they always appear in the exact same spot in the sky from where I'm looking in my garden. Todays one... some other ones I took today...can see a bit of a theme here haha
  20. afternoon all what a beautiful day! almost as nice as Monday which was amazing. Its such a real treat after the total dross we've had for a few months. I've been out all day with the wee one taking pics. We just saw a rainbow which wasnt a rainbow (one in the clouds) I cant think what they're called. I've seen a few of them and they're always in the same place in the sky...weird! When I've sorted through my 500 odd pics I took today I'l post one up!
  21. Afternoon Happy Friday! Beautiful day here in Faversham, Was just sitting there enjoying the peace and quiet and heard rain. Had a peek out the back and it was sunny blue, peek out the front and it was black, opened the door and saw the end of a rainbow in the park! I couldn't get a good pic as my little one is fast asleep and I couldn't leave her indoors but I could just see it through the trees coming down onto the grass. Thats a first for me. No pot of gold that I could see but maybe I'll be lucky on the lottery tonight.
  22. My Dads garden took a battering here in Fav! Ripped down the wall so now they have open plan garden with nextdoor and took out the gazebo frame on the way! My Dad is ok about it, I was more upset than him lol. My Dad said the town has a bit of damage, street lights smashed, fences all down, a few trees down etc
