Thick overcast this morning, nice strong breeze and low teens forecast so took a chance and went out.

23 degrees within the hour and back in bed exhausted by 2.00!

Well , I'm up and dressed for only the second time in a week, and absolutely jiggered.

With 70 deg plus forecast as far as the eye can see it doesn't look good.

I'm well and truly sick of this awful weather, Have now been suffering from swollen feet for the past 3-4 days to add to my other problems so I sent for a Dyson pure cool which is to be delivered tomorrow.

I have read excellent reviews on it,so am hoping for some real relief from the worst problems.

Has anyone on here bought one ? and, how do you rate it?

I haven't got one Monika but I would consider getting one after hearing your opinion on them.

I can't stand this heat - not for a long spell like this. It's making me depressed & lifeless..

Our first few drops of rain today so a bit cooler, but forecast to be back at 21 degrees on Sunday so only a brief respite.

I had to go out for medicine yesterday, but it knocked me up and I was back home in bed by 2.00. I'll be getting bed sores at this rate!

Carole - I'm so glad to know that someone else is feeling the same as I do, i.e. depressed and exhausted and I'm not just being miserable.

Laurie - I would love to be living in a temperature of 21 or 22; I can't remember the last time we had 21 degrees and it is nowhere to be seen for at least another 14 days here in Nottingham and on this coming Monday, it is forecast to be 29 (oh joy!) I feel great sympathy for you, Laurie, when I read your posts and the daily problems you have to overcome. Honestly don't know how you keep so cheerful :grouphug:

Maggieh - I also hope it is the weather alone which is causing swollen feet, but I have not had the problem before. It's so bad that, on Wednesday I had to go to our local Clark's outlet to get some shoes which will be far too big when the weather cools and, indoors, I'm wearing just socks or bare-footed most of the time.

It's not just you two, Monika & Maggieh. Whenever the weather gets hot and humid for more than a couple of days, my ankles swell and have done since i was in my 30s. It's worse if I'm on my feet a lot (sightseeing on holiday last week was a very mixed pleasure!) and if i don't get the opportunity to spend at least some time with my feet up. If I'm lucky, they shrink down overnight but, when it's this hot, not always. So far as I'm aware, I have no circulatory or kidney problems and I'm on diuretics anyway for other reasons so the only cause appears to be heat/humidity.
I've certainly had quite enough of this heat now and long for a gentle breeze and about 19 or 20 degrees!
There's always another way

Monika

It's all relative, of course. My son is complaining about the cold in Sydney, currently around 21 I think!

As for my outlook, there are plenty, some on this forum, who would gladly change places.

Its cooler today BUT still ruddy muggy and I keep having bouts of fighting for my breath. I have to sit down after doing small chores until things calm down.
I had to go to have my pacemaker checked last Friday and they were more concerned with my terribly wheezy chest than the pacemaker and asked me to call the doctor when I got home.
I said I would just to appease them but didnt, mainly because I dont want to finish up in that sodding hospital again being given the wrong meds like they did last time as well as mixing my medical notes up with someone who had thyroid problems. :evil:

Just been messaged by someone who has had a large crack appear in her kitchen wall.
She has contacted her insurer but they cant send anyone until the 1st of August because there have been one or two claimants contacting them with the same problem.Could it be due to this heatwave do you think?

Have you tried it yet Monika?

They're so expensive but worth it if they make a big difference.

I've had another awful night - woke up in a sweat at 5.30.
Monika I can't wait to hear how you got on with the Dyson cooler. :)

I'm off to Skegness for a few days. Hoping it will be cooler with the sea breeze.
Have a nice weekend everybody.
