    Ah, being marooned on a tropical island would be a dream come true! What would your one luxury be? (as in Desert Island Discs). Mine would be a flushing toilet.

    I lived on an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean which was as near enough a desert island in that the "natives" didn't grow anything other than Ylang Ylang and didn't keep any animals apart from a few goats

    For all our food we relied on the tramp ship which arrived from South Africa every six weeks or so. The thing we used to crave most, believe it or not were potatoes to make chips! If we ran out of spuds before the boat came in, out of desperation we'd resort to making chips with yams or green bananas bought from the local market.

    My son used to make me laugh because the first thing he always bought was a carton of custard cream biscuits which he carefully guarded and you were lucky if you were offered a taste!

    Blimey, it's coming up midnight and I'm still leaking like a sieve despite the fan on full. Way, way, way too hot today. Too hot to be nice

    Chico and Fonzy the Cockatiel are the only ones enjoying the heat in this family. I always put Fonzy out in the sunshine because it's good for him, but the last few days I haven't left him out for long in case he cooks!

    Chico finds the hottest spot he can and sunbathes. Pepe seeks out cold tiles indoors and lies flat out. I even have to look for him to check out where he is - normally, he makes his presence very much felt!

    A little cloud cover, and a slight breeze this morning, so we were able to get the walk out of the way. I don't like leaving it till the evening as at our ages, we are usually well pooped by then. The cloud is burning off now, and we have been forecast 28 - 30° later in the day. (Probably this is just a normal temperature for you @Malka). I'm sorry to admit that I have made my apologies to our trainer. Our obedience class is held in an artificial grass carpeted agricultural building, and can be like an oven, - or the opposite in Winter. We have been warned that there could be some thundery showers later - the ground certainly does need some rain.

    Beautiful here today. Sunshine but a lovely breeze to keep things 'just right'. Ah if only it could stay as it's been this morning - not too hot, not too cold

    Still hot here but there is more of a breeze which makes it more bearable.

    Cant believe it’s the longest day already .

    Solid rain, rain and more rain all day. The caravanners ain't happy bunnies. Most of the sites are like duck ponds. Hopefully it will be a bit dryer tomorrow.

    Yesterday the temperature was 32C and unfortunately I needed to go to the city which is a 2 hour round journey. I don't have air con in my car and even with all the windows open when you're on the move, it gets like an oven. I'd left the dogs at home much to their disgust but had so much to do in the city that I didn't get home until nearly 3 pm feeling like a wet rag!

    It must have rained during the night because this morning It's much cooler ... not quite sweater weather ... and the sun keeps going in and out as if it's trying to decide what to do!
