Hottest day of the year so far??


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Well it’s been stunning today - so what have folks been upto in the glorious sunshine?

I’ve been getting ahead of the curve and have smashed a woodburner into the gym - cut the floor and set the hearth stones down yesterday - I’m ready for winter 👍 - just need some tile and a half’s for finishing the flashing.

That part of the house is on different levels to the main house - the next room up - about 3ft of steps is the room with the pool table in. That’s critical in the winter 😬

Depends where you live up here. West coast, yup, it rains more which is why the farm land and forests are so green, lush and plush.

East coast, it's a lot dryer, especially Fife Coast up to Arbroath and to be honest the climate is lovely. Yup, 2 - 8 degress colder than the hot south, but 16 - 21c up here is just beautiful and the air is so fresh. So crisp. So clean. And it's just well, not jam packed with morons and muppets squeezing into non existent gaps on full roads. :)

Weekend I was replacing a fence, which included replacing a concrete post with a 2ft cube of concrete attached to the base. That's nice work for directly in the sun with no shade at any time from dawn to dusk. Now Mon-Fri will be stuck in front of PC except moments of drink breaks etc.

Yesterday was a scorcher and I had hired a van to move my son and his mate into their new flight. Four flights of stairs, no lift then a final spiral staircase to get everything up.

The views are breath-taking but bugger me was I stiff, sore, and hurting today as we really got roasted yesterday....

However, not complaining and my vitamin D levels are fully topped up! :)

Had our field baled today (small bales, been getting them in while it is rather hot...had to stop for a cool drink or 2. Saw an unusual sight of a 'hay devil' moving the rowed up grass around - lasted about 5 mins.

suggested to my mate his son might prefer the convertible option with the weather being so nice. Luckily the Aircon works on the esprit 👍

Well my daughters form teacher was in charge of proceedings at the prom venue. 
Fair play he had pulled a blinder - he actually booked three Disney princesses as meet and greeters for folks being dropped off in cars. A right giggle that was 👍

You can laugh chap - but with all the cameras, phone tracking, social media cookies etc - modern day serial killers have no option but to stop driving lorries and don a Disney Princess dress.
