Wink How hot is it?

Outstanding, Mark. I'm curious - just how hot does it get in Wales? Today, at my home in Missouri, USA, the high was 107 degrees F (41.6 Celsius), the hottest day ever recorded in the month of June for over 100 years. Tomorrow 105 (40.5 C). If it's below 33 C where you are, I'm coming for a visit.

the only time it get's that hot, is when i open the oven ...looks like no chance of any summer again this year... put a fan on, and try and blow some of that warmth over year please...
must be a very worrying time of year, with all them fires you are getting over there....mark
