Visiting Hospital tomorrow, for a check up, thankfully outside temperature is forecast at just 12ºC in the morning, but high pollen count, so the car Aircon will be on recirculate, aided by its' Pollen Filter.

 

I just hope the waiting area is not too hot, I have my USB fan and powerbank at the ready !!!

At least there is a very cold water dispenser.

 

Today, staying indoors, just preceding the Sun with curtains on the windows have kept the property cool.

Plus some fans, and a touch of Aircon.

 

And of course, ice cold drinks.....

 

But we are having Curry for Tea !!!

It's the hottest April day since 1949 according to Sky News.

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.

It's the hottest day of the year, so far... Grin

 

But then, it could potentially be the hottest day of the year, nobody knows what the weather will be like when summer comes along, after all, they failed to predict the winter (as usual)... Grin

Isn't there something backwards here.

I would have thought the long cold very wet spell we've just had was much more notable.

I'll take it all back, Wales is now basking in sunshine and the garden is demanding our attention.

Lovely jubbly.
