  1. Bit of a strange question, but does anyone suffer with sinus headaches when the air pressure drops?. I do , these last few days have played havoc with me.
  2. Speaking personally I quite like the onset of the darker evenings, by Sept I've had enough of waking up at 5.30 am, together with swapping one load of work for another when I get home. From October it's a case of get in, have dinner and put my feet up for the evening.

    Mary had a little lamb, she tied it to a pylon. 10 000 volts shot up it's ar...e and turned it's wool to nylon.
  4. Quite looking forward to September,/October you can have some really nice weather without the oppressive heat.
  5. Wouldn't have the energy or motivation these days Pete . There's more go in a bottle of lemonade .
  6. Must admit it will be nice to have a bit of a cool down. It's been pretty unbearable working outside in the heat. On average I've shifted , mixed up for, and layed about a ton of stone per day . I've been knocking off at 2pm all this week.
  7. Someone said to me once "You're so lucky to work outside during the Summer in the nice weather" Sitting here in my van watching it p,, ss down incessantly I can now think of a suitable response. Two words ending with off.!!!!
  8. I think the reason Eavis has it in June is to give the ground a chance to recover afterwards. But I do agree with you, September would probably be a little more settled.
  9. Sum up month ahead forecast as start = cack middle ==ok end == cack . Weather in this poxy island is just 4 seasons of the same old sh..te with varying degrees of temperature. It's a bl..dy nightmare trying to plan work outside.
  10. After working outside for the best part of 38 years, the weather in this country is best described by one word,.. mediocre. I can count what could be described as good summers since 1976 the year I left school on the fingers of two hands. Maybe others will disagree, but you tend to remember crap years when they have cost you money.

    Came home from work yesterday, found a note on the fridge door saying " It's not working I've had enough , I've gone to my mothers." Well, I opened the door, the light came on, and my beer was cold, can't see what her problem is !!
  12. Always feel a certain level of disappointment when we get a poor summer, hopefully this one will pull something out of the bag. Autumn and Winter I expect crud .
