  1. Been really nice here since about 12:00pm,sun shining and a garden shade temp of 28c (not official)..
  2. Just dull grey skies here ,been like it most of the day
  3. I was away in Sweden last week , before I went the grass was looking very brown and too short to cut,it's now like a jungle after the rain,but I can't cut it because i'm currently laid up with a sprained ankle that i brought back from Sweden with me ...it's all very frustrating
  4. Looks like the heat is returning this week , BBC outlook just said that Europe's highest ever temperature could be broken this week (48c) in Southern Portugal,now that is HOT ...I've attached a chart i found recently
  5. Well , it was nice to see you Mr Rain , but you've overstayed your welcome now please Bu**** off for another 5 weeks (that's when i'm off to Spain for a week)
  6. Just a Thunder/lightning/hail shower
  7. Just got back from a scorching week in western Sweden and it's p****** down here in Wigan
  8. Yes I own a hose pipe and Yes I will be affected...I will be seriously pi**ed off
  9. I know rain has been in short supply this summer so far , but it's a bit pathetic not to mention bad management, when the wettest part of England is the first to issue a hosepipe ban.
  10. A moderate downpour this morning , but then took the grandson to Manchester airport visitor centre where it was bone dry..However had quite a lot of rain this evening which has really helped water the grass.... Off to W Sweden (between Göteborg and Trollhättan) on friday for a week , hope the forecast is correct as it will mean lots of outdoor fun and swimming if it comes off..
  11. Thought today was the best day of the recent hot spell,not too humid and a slight refreshing breeze has made it comfortable enough to sit out without having to seek shade every 10 minutes,garden thermometer still registering 27.6 c though
