I know what you mean, it's not like abroad when there is a breeze, it's a dry stifling heat, my poor cats are hating it, they can't get comfortable. I'm not sleeping well because of this heat. Will be glad when it's cooler.
Got a fan downstairs and a fan upstairs, we have removed the quilt and sleeping on cotton sheets and I'm in a short P.J set. Phil has put up the window trellises up so the windows can be opened fully ( he made them a few years ago they are a god send at this time of year!) (I've told him he should pattern them and sell them as I think people would snap them up). The cats are trying their best to keep cool by finding shady area's to lye down.
