(Just a little babble about the day2day stuff...)

We are in the middle of a heat wave at the moment...apparently. In the UK it appears they mean 'Wave' fairly literally (or descriptively?) The heat comes and the heat goes. Just like a wave.
Its interesting. After nights and nights of not being able to sleep because its too hot the last 2 nights its actually been quite cool and comfortable - but the sun has vanished during the day time.
We had cracking thunder overhead yesterday. It even managed a bit of rain. But that miniature 15 minute thunderstorm has broken the weather. Its not a satisfying situation however. I really love those days where the weather really hangs on you and you just know a storm must be building just out of sight (or at least you hope so - anything to break the unbearable oppressive hot weather) and you get home just in time to see that first flash of lightening and hear that distant crack of thunder slowly rolling towards you. We had some cracking (forgive the pun - and the overuse of the word) thunderstorms last year. Really black clouds and forked lightening crackling and fizzing and ripping through the sky straight for trees and helpless rooftops! Brilliant. More entertaining than an episode of your favourite prime time TV!
But I digress. The weather here - on the plus side - has been interesting and we have managed to get a situation where we work through the grey, boring, cool weather and we have all the good weather at the weekends! It is getting hard to kwno what to wear to work on any given day though!
