More grumpiness about the sun

I’m terribly sorry to sound like such an old curmudgeon, but it’s just too damned hot. I live in the UK, for crying out loud, I don’t expect this. As of 2245 it’s finally starting to cool down out there, so having all the doors and window open is beginning to help. I had to abandon the flat late this afternoon and read my book under a tree.

I tried to get some cash out this afternoon and the ATM refused. This scared the hell out of me. I have two large transactions going through my account this week, but had deliberately made sure the credit was before the debit. If it happened the other way around I’d be fined for all sorts of reasons. Happily it seems to have just been the ATM being annoying, and trying again this evening worked fine. It would be the day I only have 14p in my wallet, tho.

I’m meant to be away climbing Snowdon this weekend, and as of this morning have a sore throat which has worsened considerably as the day’s gone on. I’m hoping it’ll be one of those 24hr things and not a precursor to anything worse.

Right, I’m going to go see if I can fit inside the fridge.
