Well, here in the London area it's warm. 31C (around 86F) according to the BBC London News. I managed to stay cool in the shade but the heat has also brought an explosion of annoying little buzzy greenish flies in my front garden (which is where the afternoon shade is!). Today I resorted to fly spray and eventually had to come indoors since they were driving me crazy. I feel sorry for anyone stuck on the trains or Tube today in London. In addition there was a warehouse fire out at Heathrow and I could hear the sirens and see smoke rising in the distance this afternoon. (Couldn't smell It though). So is everyone managing to keep cool? I won't even bring up the subject of rain - my grass had been brown for a couple of weeks now. At least that means I don't have to mow in the heat.
