    Hi Guys

    How are you coping with the hot weather? Do you have fans and AC or don't you need them? Doing OK without here.

    Just stick your kid in a carry pack on your back, Ben, and get off up Blencathra...

    Bottle of Reyka vodka circulated between the fridge and freezer, ice-cold tomato juice, tabasco...

    Fan on, double doors open, stripped down to knickers and hope the dog walkers across the way don't look in. Tough if they do.

    Cold bath once a day.

    Counter-intuitively, I also find hot tea and curries help, in the overall plan.

    Obviously, night time, sleeping on top of the bedclothes.

    Anyway, temperature is finally dropping now.

    As our summers are usually around 40C I have air conditioning in nearly every room :) Can't imagine life without it. As you can use it to heat in winter as well I'm surprised more people in UK don't use it.

    How do you think I've been occupying myself this Summer? :D to be fair, it's been way too hot recently to do anything enjoyably. Especially since I can't take Margo because of the heat.

    I like making ice cubes for drinks. Has anyone ever made any home made cooling solutions using ice cubes? I bet there are some good possibilities.
