As I sit here at Jen’s kitchen table, attempting to find the motivation to write, I am struggling and so is she.
When have we ever experienced a summer like this? Normally you can guarantee daily rain in Manchester, however now I am scratching my head trying to think of when we last had rain!
Which is great in theory as it means spending time outside is more enjoyable, we don’t have to pay to achieve and awesome tan and everyone is happy! After suffering a really harsh Winter that seemed to last forever ( it was still snowing two months ago!), it’s about time we were able to bask in a heatwave!
A downside are that work seems like a enormous chore, especially when it comes to stringing legible syntax together! It’s almost like I am already in summer chill out mode and cannot get in gear… no amount of coffee is going to help, because… oddly enough, it’s far too hot to drink a hot drink according to The Manc!
This weather is amazing for Geocaching which is our new favourite hobby. Exploring the wilderness for hidden cache is always easier when it isn’t raining, cold and miserable! It really is such a fantastic family activity and is totally free, though in this weather an ice cream is always appreciated to keep you going! I am super glad I am not dog sitting this week, it would have been even more tiring!
There really does seem to be no respite from this heat though, with no rain on the forecast. Which is making the Saddleworth Moor fire even more dangerous. I do not envy the emergency services attempting to tackle that, I can only imagine how horrendous it is, the devastation the fire is causing is heartbreaking!
There are upsides and downsides to this weather, I am certainly not going to join the club that are moaning about it being far too hot, but it would be nice to get back in gear!
Are you feeling more lethargic in this heat? Are you actually complaining about the weather?
