  • Hot for me. People are starting to sunbathe!


    Went for a nice walk over a country park earlier and very pleasant it was too. Was even tempted to join a group of runners who were about to set off across the parklands, but the hills put me off! :)

    Run 8| I used to run for fun and keep fit many moons ago , now at my age it takes it out of me to run a bath let alone run up a hill ;(

  • Sorry to hear that Fred.


    I was tempted. I'm very unfit and overweight and have been for most of my life and I had a DVT a few years ago as a serious warning to sort myself out. Over the last few days, I have been doing a lot of walking, so next time I see the joggers, I might walk with them, just at a much faster pace. :)

  • I was told I was Type 2 diabetic seven years ago ,but I went on a low carbohydrate diet with half hour walks every day ever since and my blood-sugar levels have come right down!


    Since doing this, I have had no symptoms and my diabetic nurse says that she can’t believe it. Wasn’t even difficult, really.

  • Great well done yes it can be done, sadly I lost my best mate to Diabetes 8 years ago , he was unable to exercise due to a heart condition and could not loose weight he was over 20 stone towards the end his heart gave out , I was with him when they switched off the machine that was keeping him alive

  • We had some rain earlier on and there looks to be another spell heading our way. Hope it goes through before lunchtime so we can sit outside at the pub.

  • Same here yesterday was a scorcher, today now dry and overcast , I was going to mow the laws again but my Hay fever is playing up taken some antihistamine and staying indoors today

  • Yesterday was a weird weather day, started cloudy and mild , later the sun broke through I started to mow the lawns , then it clouded over again , then black clouds and rain, which only lasted for 10 mins or so, sun broke through long enough to finish the lawns .


    Glad I did get it done today a belter of a day very light breeze blue sky and 25C just come inside to cool down

  • Pretty decent day down here. Just walked into the town to go to the bank and get a replacement security device. Gentle breeze, sunny and 20C

  • There's Met Office yellow weather warning for thunderstorms and possible flash floods from Portland to the wash and places south-east. Could be a lively night.

  • Thunderstorms forecast tonight and here in the Thames Valley, there’s plenty of lightning flashing away. Not too much rain as yet though.
