    Our MH has been moved down the garden into the shade of a big oak, in June the same garden was under water after all the rain...

    The weather is all mixed up...

    Ile D'Oleron has been exempted from the Orange weather warning because of it's cooling sea breezes !!

    I agree, just resting at Condom a cold glass of rosé at my elbow, yes it is warm BUT I LIKE IT tomorrow I will fix my bits and sadly head North towards that "temperate climate" they kept filling our heads with when I was a kid.

    Roll on retirement, I can cope with this!

    28 deg here in Norfolk today, allegedly up to 32 - 33 tomorrow, great, what a time to be having my op in hospital, these places are warm enough at the best of times.

    Spent three hours this morning directing traffic onto a roundabout just ouside Carcassonne where our van decided that the clutch didn't want to play any more ,right on the dotted line onto the roundabout,boy was that hot and I don't think a lot of fre check men love me anymore.
    Van now in an iveco dealer and we are in a room in the local formula 1 waiting for the bad news at least we now have time to do the place properly.

    Everything feels worse when it is so hot....In 2009 we picked up a new (for us) car which broke down in Orleans on May Day, it was 35C and we stood on a street corner for hours waiting for a recovery truck with everything closed...and another hour or two for a taxi to take us to a car hire office for our replacement car..

    Hope your repair in the end is as simple as ours was all though years ago!
