This week has been extremely warm. There were warnings at the beginning of spring, that we may be in for the warmest summer in many years, possibly 2 or 3 degrees higher than normal.
For the last few weeks, it has barely fallen below 33 degrees each day. Night time temperature drops to around 25!
Sadly, this has meant many old and young people becomming ill. Even little Alicia has been unwell with the heat. Most of the time, we have been indoors. We have often had the windows and doors closed, trying to keep the heat outside, but, sometimes, there has been enough of a breeze to enable us to open up the dining windows, so it is like living outside (especially when the swallows fly in, swoop around then go back out again!).
