    29C in the bedroom :(

    Hotter tomorrow.

    Fingers crossed for some downpours on Friday. Wouldn’t mind a huge storm.

    Still badly jet lagged, hoping to have a proper night's sleep tonight, my bedroom was 28 earlier - I closed the door and let my air-con run for an hour, came in and it's now freezing cold at 14 degrees, just hope I don't end up waking up at 3am and laying there will 7 again,.. jetlag sucks

    If you’re sweating a lot due to heat and begin to feel signs of dehydration then, as well as replacing your fluids you may find you need a recovery drink such as an electrolyte or low-sugar energy drink and salt.
    It’s very unlikely that you’ll drink too much water, but if you're going to the toilet a lot and your urine looks really pale, you’re probably drinking more than you need.

    33c down here tomorrow (South East). Aircon'ed office for the day, but will be hot at home in the evening as it gets the sun all day due to facing perfectly south!

    Forecast tomorrow night looks angry. Hot too! That’ll be a pain if the windows can’t be open.

    Not many people think of it and it is important especially for the young and old, so as with most things, just be aware of the potential problems with this very nasty heat wave.

    Crikey, woke up with bad stomach pains on the night, i drank a glass of water and it went away after a while. Guessing it was constipation because i did a number two this morning.

    I’ll make sure to drink plenty of water now!

    Normally i consume 1.5-2L of water at work, recently it's been 2L-2.5L. I do not exercise, so this is just standard consumption.

    Keep hydrated people!

    Set the sleep timer on my air con last night, I woke up about 2 hours after it will have gone off, turned the air con back on to find it was full. Emptied the water, asleep almost instantly. Woke again, not sure of time, as it had filled again already and was basically just being a fan. Emptied and straight back to sleep. I really don't know how people can use just a fan... almost instantly the room is colder when the actual AC is turned on.

    Not even needed a fan the last few nights, just the windows open our house position means we get a slight breeze constantly was about 24c last night.

    Work is a nice break though we have it set so cold I actually need a jacket on at the minute.

    You get that feeling like stepping off a plane when going on holiday when you go outside

    My metoffice app is just useless. Thunderstorms --> No Thunderstoms --> A little Rain --> No Rain --> Thunderstorms --> A little Rain

    All within the space of 6 hours...I think i'm just going to ignore it. One thing's for sure, it's hot.

    Yeah the MetOffice app drives me bonkers. Habit of checking it too often because of cycling, but it means that I'm seeing constant weather changes and it can never be trusted

    "Oh look a whole day of rain and thunder, yay!"
    5 minutes later
    "Oh okay, 31 all day then and no rain until tomorrow"

    And then by tomorrow that disappears.

    I drink 2 to 3 litres a day 365 days a year.

    Going to spain in 2 weeks and I'm sure that will do up to 5 litres a day.
