Weather is so sluggish, having to fight for every single breath, wish we could have a huge storm, at least it might clear the air a bit.

Thank you the heat is usually good for my breathing but it's a mixture of heat and humidity too much

Yes! The heat is harsh. Been weeks of 105 Fahrenheit at my house. Ugh🔥

in reply to Maricopa

It's horrible when you have no Aircon and couldn't afford to run it if you did have it I just can't escape 🥵🥵😂

Oh that would be unbearable. I’d be sitting in a cool tub. Yikes.

in reply to Maricopa

I've got a big bag of ice hanging in front of my fan right in front of me getting some cold air but lots of nice ice cold droplets of water hitting me. I'm high enough not to be overlooked so sat in my boxers 😂🤣😂🤣😂😂

Gotta do anything to beat this heat. I’m 65 in a tank & underwear. Now that should just be illegal! I won’t be answering my door! 🤣🤣😂😂

The other day, I had to do a quick scuttle back to the bedroom, to find something to throw on, as was heading to the front door (postie I think) and realised i had on a pair of very thin short pyjama bottoms and nothing else. I would definitely have frightened the horses😱

Yes i bet you could do with some light relief. You need the right heat and humid is not our friend. A nice dry heat is best. Wishing sone rain to come your way soon Dave and some cooler temps at least. Although the curry would heat you up 😅 Its a shame you can't take a dip in the sea any more 🏊‍♂️

in reply to Suzie42

I know I would love to go to the beach and just have a nice swim but apparently it's like getting into your bath tub at the moment 🤣 I'm cooling down a fair bit using my ice bag and fan routine and because I have marble flooring it doesn't matter if it gets wet 😂😂👍🏼

Suzie42 in reply to

Great, keep it up Dave

in reply to Suzie42

The extremes you have to go to 😂😂 normally this time of year it's nice and hot but not extreme heat and at night a nice cooling breeze but global warming as killed all of that we start a hosepipe ban on the 24th never had one before on the island

It's never been like this before everyone is complaining about the heat at night and the Greeks usually use the Aircon but like the UK can't afford the electric

Good to hear from you Dave. I really don’t know how you’re coping in the heat over there. We had about a minute of light rain here when I was sat in the garden - it was lovely.

I don't know how you are coping in that heat. If I was you, I would put water and ice on your marble floor, lie down and do snow angels for as long as it took to cool me down! Hope you manage some sleep my friend xx

Cripes !! I thought marble was supposed to stay cool 🤷‍♀️ I don’t know what to suggest Davey , I couldn’t cope with it at all. I hope it’s cooler now and you get a little sleep xx

Hi DavidMy mother always put her feet into a basin of cold water to cool down, as I now do myself.

Try it and see, it can’t do any harm.

If u are allowed to, drink Dioralyte, or similar type of drink, (ask the Chemist) in water cooled in the fridge.

Best wishes

Bernardine

in reply to djbctla

I have not had cold water come through the taps in the past couple of weeks it's always warm even left running. I'll ask pharmacy about diorylite thank you

Hi Davey. Have you tried a hand held fan? I've found it helpful in the hot hot weather recently. However in temperatures like the ones you're enduring I'm not sure if it would help. Just a suggestion. It's cooler where I live now so I hope it cools down a bit for you to make your life a bit more comfortable.

in reply to Biofreak

A good thunderstorm and heavy rain for the day would be a good send

Hello,Maybe the water has cooled down and it’s time for a swim. By the way we’ve got a grapevine, down the garden, sadly neglected. If we can get it going, would the leaves be alright for moussaka ?

By the way your body will decide what will be, not the doctors, keep on going …….

in reply to bluepuddy

Don't use grape vin for moussaka your thinking of domadis vin leaves stuffed with mince tomato and onion

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

Oh, how silly of me, 👀, of course. It looks as if I need another recipe 😀.

in reply to bluepuddy

You can make domadis with cabbage leaves instead of vin leaves. Boil some whole cabbage leaves partially. Fry mince onion and chopped garlic add a tin of drained chop tomato scoop into leaves and make a parcel. Put into a saucepan just cover the top of them with water and cook for fifteen minutes but add a little vinegar before finishing off . Drain and serve

Thanks that’s brilliant. Hope you’ve managed to cool down a bit.

in reply to bluepuddy

Not much 😂😂 it's heating up again and it's still thundering 😂😂😂

bluepuddy in reply to

Don’t know where you are, but rain is forecast in a lot of locations in Greece. I just hope it comes your way.

in reply to bluepuddy

I'm on Rhodes and we had a whole ten minutes of rain and even that was warm and now the sun's back out and everywhere is dry 😂😂😂😂

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

That won’t do will it !

in reply to bluepuddy

That's Rhodes for you 😂😂😂

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

Looked at a few forecasts, some say rain later and a little rain tomorrow in Rhodes. We got some very fine rain here yesterday, but it’s not really proper rain. It’s very humid here. Nothing like the temperatures in Greece though, but uncomfortable. Could you try lukewarm or cold showers, iced drinks, cold flannels. There might be a breeze coming off the sea ? 👀 Could you put some ice in a flannel to keep yourself cool ? Have you got shutters, if so are you keeping them shut ? In Italy these used to be closed in the hot weather. Keep the fan going and I hope the night there will be cooler. We’re thinking of you.

in reply to bluepuddy

I'm not letting it get to me 😂 soon be winter . One thing I've learnt is I never listen to weather men or Google their as accurate as Mary Poppins being a man 😂😂😂

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

Certainly the weathermen here haven’t been very accurate lately 👀

in reply to bluepuddy

Their never accurate here like winter time they said that it was going to rain bit snowed from one end of the island to the other both sides except our village and no one can understand why our village had no snow what so ever

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

We do have freak weather, it has even been known to rain on one pavement and not on the other in local towns. It’s raining today, but fine weather is predicted again tomorrow. People were happy to have a hot summer, but you can have enough of a good thing. Our South African daisies and Australian bottle brush have been doing well, but our hydrangeas have wilted. The rain followed the hosepipe ban, predictably !We live in Eastbourne, and we get more sun here than Torquay, so tropical plants are on the agenda. 🌵

Keep going Daveyboy.

in reply to bluepuddy

When I was a kid I can remember the top of the street covered in snow and the bottom of the street was bone dry . But unfortunately since the industrial revolution we've caused so much damage to the environment we would a miracle to happen to repair the damage. If we all moved to Mars give mankind a few years we would screw that planet up aswell

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

Unhappily this global warming has changed the weather in Europe. While I was in Rome, in winter, many years ago the Italians were so amazed to have a fall of snow that they went outside at midnight and played with their children in it. In the summer you were guaranteed sunshine every day from March until the Autumn, now rainy weather is not unusual. Climate change is affecting us all. Hopefully now it is apparent, something will be done about it. Yep, mankind is very good at mucking things up 👀

in reply to bluepuddy

I can remember when I was a kid we used to have proper seasons certain plants and flowers came up with each season now your lucky if the flowers and plants grow 👍🏼😁

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

Like most things, we will have to adapt. I might get my wish and have bougainvillea in the garden one day, if it gets much warmer. Too hot and I reckon cacti will be popular 😀

in reply to bluepuddy

Next year you will be able to grow coconuts and bananas aswell 🤣😂😂 because next year you will get the heat again

bluepuddy in reply to

We’ll get the monkeys moving in next ! We’re waiting for the parakeets, they’ve got them in Regents Park, won’t be long before they move down here. Hope you are managing in the heat. Look after yourself.

in reply to bluepuddy

The monkey's have started they sent the pox first then they will come 😂😂😂

bluepuddy profile image
bluepuddy in reply to

It didn’t come from monkeys, goodness knows why they called it monkey pox. Time to look at the view with a nice cool drink and maybe a chat with some Greek friends. We’re thinking of you.

in reply to bluepuddy

I know they always come up with some stupid name like chickenpox didn't come from chickens 😂 another hour or two and I'll be sat outside hopefully in cooler air and I'll have my JD at my side
