It's too hot, who else is suffering? 

Just over 30 degrees C in my flat right now and the wind has changed direction, so I'm not getting any breeze through the window. There's a possibility of thunder tomorrow, so let's hope that has an effect.

Including coming on here?

Outside is a carpenter hand sawing plaster boards.

I was transferring aircraft once at Abu Dhabi airport at about 2pm. Workers were outside in 40C building a new terminal building.

I was holidaying in Sharm-el-Sheikh in 2006, and the hotel had the grace to put the days highest temperature on a blackboard outside the entrance, one day it got to 42c, admittedly sitting on a beach, snorkelling is not the same as working, but you notice it when after swimming your tee-shirt is dry as a bone 15 mins later, but that 3c bottle of Orange Tango, when you get back to the hotel is sooooooooo good.

My quick trip to the supermarket for a couple of thing took far longer than it should, just because I loitered in all the chilled and frozen aisles.

Just had some thunder and a little rain here in NW London. The weather's still hot, but it did knock about 5 degrees off the outside temperature and I'll take that.

The last time I was in Berlin there was a heatwave and temperatures were pushing 40.

I decided to visit the cathedral again and went up to the top of one of the towers where you can walk round it outside. Between the walkway and the fall to your death is a wall with copper sheeting on top of it.

I asked someone to take a picture of me with Alexanderplatz in the background.

I leant on the copper.

I have a picture of me screaming in pain at the top of Berlin Cathedral with the Fernsehturm and Alexanderplatz behind me and I'm pretty sure I still have the scars on my elbow to prove it!

You can always move to the Falkland Islands. It never gets hot there, or just accept the weather here for the week to 10 days it will here.

By the way where do you holiday when you have the choice?

Usually abroad but always at the beginning or end of the season. I couldn't do July or August.
