Gilly: Wooohoooo back to work next Wednesday, June 3rd :wave1: May 27, 2020 10:28:33 GMT
Steph Walford: All the best Gilly x May 27, 2020 10:35:02 GMT
Gilly: Thanks Steph :-* I thought I'd be really worried about going back but I'm not...feel quite excited to get back to learning the job as I'd only been there 5 weeks when we closed. Ask me again next Wednesday tho' and I'll prob be a bag of nerves (rofl) May 27, 2020 11:04:10 GMT
Mia: :bunny: May 27, 2020 12:56:01 GMT
mistero: I think I know what an ice cream left out of the fridge for too long feels now. It is up t 27° these last days, but it feels so warm ! Not as bad as being too cold, thought. May 28, 2020 4:42:27 GMT
Gilly: I'm the opposite Julien....can take ANY amount of cold but heat just kills me :-X I think you and I say this every summer, don't we.....we've had some right scorchers this past two/three years :sun: May 28, 2020 10:18:20 GMT
mistero: I wish I were English ! Not only you have nice castles, but you have a liveable weather. May 28, 2020 19:35:34 GMT
radellaf: I'd say I'm the same, but my NC experience of "any amount" is rarely below freezing. Teens F (-10C) at worst. Over 30C and I just stay inside. May 28, 2020 20:40:22 GMT
davidv: Winter lasts too long here. Even when it's uncomfortably hot in the summer I try to soak it in so the memory will keep me warm in the winter May 29, 2020 0:56:40 GMT
dignum: Thanks guys! Winters is starting here and I am smiling at the thought of it being too warm in the UK, France & Canada. Ahem...we had 45C only a few months ago :sun: May 29, 2020 22:13:13 GMT
Mia: :snowflake: May 30, 2020 1:58:10 GMT
Gilly: I would just be a melted pile of lard on the pavement if it got up to 45c in the UK!!! (rofl) It was 12c when I was at the allotment watering plants last night at 9.30pm and it was just perfect. Owls hooting, bats flitting around - wonderful! May 30, 2020 13:44:04 GMT
Mia: June up. May 30, 2020 20:46:49 GMT
dignum: these days you may well be right. I feel the cold far more than ever before. Must be old age! (rofl) May 30, 2020 23:42:58 GMT
Lupine: 109F/43C today in the concrete desert that is Phoenix.Australians are our dry desert cousins. www.antipodesmap.com/ (I know Phoenix is "in the ocean," but a corresponding latitude.) May 31, 2020 2:13:15 GMT
dignum: 8D May 31, 2020 6:42:45 GMT
mistero: This is crazy. May 31, 2020 9:20:40 GMT
mistero: A reply from before my bag being stolen in Brussels triggered me my breaking. I am fine now but wooh ! I wonder how I managed to survive with such a fragile mind architecture. May 31, 2020 9:21:52 GMT
Gilly: Dignum ~ I used to feel the cold when I was younger but now I rarely do....even when it got down to -10c a few years ago I enjoyed it as it felt so crisp and fresh (rofl) Perhaps I'll feel the cold once more after I shift 6st of cuddliness (rofl) May 31, 2020 10:41:14 GMT
Gilly: Just read KatieL's Question 5 (rofl) I've actually held ALL of those very creatures :bunny: I'll give you my reply in the letter Katie but I think I'll ask Neil his opinion too :)) May 31, 2020 10:45:19 GMT
