  1. Crickey that moon is so bright out there tonight. Stunning.... #HarvestMoon
  2. So I've been in the process of moving home these past couple of weeks. Watching weather charts has been the last thing on my mind as you can imagine. Wet & cool sums up the past few days. Yet again it's pi**ing down and feels cold today. We have now 6 months of this to look forward to... oh the joy. Folks already dreaming of the first snows, here's mine: January 13th 2018 = wet snow that lasts 10 minutes.
  3. Yep, shower now overhead here. Raining again...! Hoping for a 2011 style ending to September again.
  4. Bit blowy this walking the dogs at 7am. Turning out to be a lovely day here. Most sunshine I've had in days and the ground is able to dry out due the strong breeze. Saw a twig in the road this morning, fortunately the wheelie bins held their ground and stayed in place, we will rebuild.
  5. Beautiful stunning day here. Hot and fairly sunny. Infact sky turning more blue now. Currently 28c here Not a drop of rain or thunderstorm as expected = perfect
  6. Absolutely stunning day here, hot and sunny. Perfect lead up to my holiday. Great news seeing the lastest BBC weather with Philip Avery. Really playing down any heavy torrential rain tomorrow morning with " Not expecting any great swathes of wet weather over the South East, wouldn't rule out the chance of damp weather in the SE Thursday morning , You may well here the odd rumble of thunder" he then goes on to say "risk of any showers in the SE pushing north to leave another hot day" However, more emphasis on thunderstorms for the north tomorrow afternoon :-) Friday looking hot and dry as well. Love it
  7. Awful day here. Cloud, rain on and off and temps around 13c 35c heat last this time last week. Only in the UK. Probably more winter like today than in actual winter 2017/18. Soaking wet across fields and woods this morning on dog walk. Improvements into the weekend, well at least not so wet and muddy under foot come my 10k run on Saturday. (One hopes)
  8. I think you might be right Jimmyh... lol
  9. Yes I read on news the other day about a water shortage, but couldn't remember which area of country was affected.
  10. Shouldn't you be outside dancing in your raincoat in the rain Dami? You've been banging on about 'rain' since it rained last... get out there any enjoy it with hubs & bubs - it's summer after all.
  11. Back to the usual mind numbing UK dross. Looks like winter outside. Steady rain and dank... oh joy!! At least the 'no rain' whingers have their wish. Greece in 12 days... can't wait! Return to sun & heat.
  12. Massive blobs of rain for all of 5 minutes here an hour ago. 1 crack of thunder and now it's becoming brighter thank god. Usual UK storm efforts, a measly 1 crack of thunder after 5 consecutive days of 30c+ = only in the UK. Dry for rest of day now here with temps up to 24/25c in afternoon = luurrvley!!
  13. Ahhh I wish I could share your optimism. I will never wish for rain living in the UK. But I guess it has it happens sooner or later.. it is of course the UK pretty sure your wish will come true by this time next week. Atlantic wet muck = oh joy
  14. Agree Staines. Quite remarkable how anyone could wish for this weather to be pushed back to Southern Europe. Clear skies and 22c.... Er im either reading the charts completely wrong or that never happens unless you are in mid May. Bog standard Atlantic rubbish greets us next week... still if the normal English weather climate floats your boat then each to their own! Hopefully July can give us more of this stunning hot and and humid weather.
  15. Peaked At 32c here about half hour ago. Now 31c..... Wowsa! As each hour passes it feels more and more oppressive and humid
