Water water everywhere…not a drop fell?

Friday lunchtime. I was gearing up for having another sleepless night, sweating hot, more itching, and probably listening out for thunder and seeing flashes of lightning adorning the night sky, with lots of rain……

Oh the best laid plans…..I did get some semblance of sleep, and when I woke around 8 am, it’s bone dry, steaming hot again and no rain fell on this part of London during the night. Very disappointed, but perhaps there’ll be another chance later on today for a deluge. That rain dance was obviously ignored by Him upstairs. He probably thought “Who’s that idiot who can’t sleep? I’ll teach him…..no rain and another sleepless, sweaty, oppressive night for him….”

Fans on, windows open, no respite or relief. They’re calling it Furnace Friday. I’ll prefer to call it F#%€^!g boiling Friday, but it wouldn’t sell newspapers or provide clickbait on Twitter. Not happy as my laptop computer has packed up, probably in sympathy. That can wait till tomorrow when it’s cooler, when I’ll send it in for repair. Think I might need to go in for repair soon as well.

Phew what a scorcher…don’t you believe it…
