We’re having a heat wave!


Jemma, Laura and Dan in particular had hoped for some typical August weather for their two week stay with us. What they got was a mixture of sun, cloud and even a drop of rain.

Almost as soon as they boarded the plane back to the UK, the weather changed. The clouds parted and the sky was blue again.

Since then it has got hotter and hotter and is forecast to get hotter still. Just look at the expected daytime temperature for Friday – a scorching 38 degrees.

At those temperatures you can’t walk outside barefoot because the terrace tiles burn your feet, the car is like an oven and you need gloves on to open the gates.

As Peter Kay says, “I like it hot but not that hot!”.
