Very refreshing it was.
It’s good to peel oneself away from the LCD screen from time to time.
Very refreshing indeed.

Saved another $37.50 on Evian in a bottle

What a great little island we live on.

comfortably. Outdoors!

That’s it. We are now officially in  a heat wave situation.
Three days in a row.

A pint of stale Guinness with a chewed straw in it at 8.30am outside the Citizens Advice Bureau (if that’s the sort of advice they dispense, I wish I had known earlier… I shall be queuing there as soon as manage to extract myself for the Mistake Factory…) – this has to be the surest sign that we have been hit by a heat wave.

That and the smell of grilled meat emanating from prams.

A day when shorts were worn

Walkers basking in the sun on the pier in Dun Laoghaire

comfortably!

A day when t-shirts were paraded.
Without pain!

A day when the GoosePimpleOMeter* recorded no positive hits on the pier! (Except perhaps for the Italian guy and the three Spanish girls who briefly unzipped their North Pole anoraks to reach for their wallet – but it doesn’t count).

A day when the thermometer hit a dizzying 23 degrees (Celsius!)
In the shade!!! (Met Eireann usually go by the temperature in the sunlight, under a looking glass, to con us into thinking that we live in a country with a near-Mediterranean climate, and no windchill)

Somehow I doubt that it will be enough to convince Mrs Raheny to pack away the winter duvet.

It’s going to be a sweat-fest for me tonight.

And it won’t be from the passion…

I believe that the temperature of the water in Dublin bay is currently* unsafe for human immersion.

And I achieved another day without immersion in the arctic water of Dublin bay.

Result!

John knew that he had to keep the lawn in front of the library hydrated.

By all possible means.
