Blowing hot air

It’s half past midnight and I can’t sleep.
The temperature in the bedroom is 25º and likely to get hotter as the week progresses.
It’s too hot indoors, but even hotter outside, and in the car? Hell, I could bake a cake.

Hubby and I have been talking about fans.
Ceiling lights with fans that is.
We had them in our previous three properties (not the boat) and they were a godsend.

In the cottage, it was too noisy or dusty to have the windows open, so we’d have the fan going all night and it didn’t make that much of a dent in the electricity bill.
Those in the cottage were already there, but in the other houses, we’d bought them.
They were about £20 each so that would definitely be doable today, but like everything else, they’ve gone up and now the cheapest we can find is on-line at just under £52.
Ouch. We’d want two (lounge and main bedroom) so they will have to wait a bit.
However, that doesn’t mean we have to stop looking! You never know, there might be a sale on and we can get them for less than that.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I saw it got up to 33 in the UK yesterday. Must have been a bit of a shock for a lot of people. Stay cool and install a fan or two. I wish we did.

    • Hi Jane. We hit 29 here yesterday, and the car was way past 50, the max on the thermometer we keep in there. Needless to say we didn’t let Maggie get in it until we’d cooled it down to around 40, then it was speedy with all the windows open, and one smiling black head poking out!
