Bus went past just now, one person on it, a topless man. That's going to be fun for the next person who sits on that seat. Eww.

Everyone saying put a ice bottle in front of the fan does that really work? I'm too hot to make the effort to try it'll if I it's no guaranteed. I may die.

It's good for pets apparently, especially animals that don't like water, as you can wrap it in a towel and they can lie on it without getting too wet.

I tried rubbing ice on my rabbit's ears which cooled him down, but he freaked out when it began to melt (two seconds later).

I used to comb my cats with a wet comb in the mega-boiling weather, they lapped it up.

Foolishness! Both Rabbits and cats can easily fit inside a normal freezer. Cool 'em down in no time.

Make sure you put booties on them so their feet don't stick to the metal bits(elements.) Never get them out :(

Fucks sake! It's the middle of the night, and there's still over a 2C difference between the inside of the sun-facing exterior walls and any of the others.

This room is not going to cool down.

Been doing this for my cat. Unfortunately he has a suicidal habit of following us around the house, even if we're in the hottest room. If he was still in touch with his ancient survival instincts he'd be chilling comfortably on the shaded bed, but instead he's melting in the kitchen.

My little shit has found a nice shady spot in my sitting room next to the chaise longue, one of his favourite basking items. He's coping better with the heat than I am, he just lazes around most of the time. I've not tried putting cold water on him because it would piss him off, but I do pop the odd ice cube in his water bowl.

Heatwave breaking down this afternoon and over the next couple of days.

Thundercell developed at 1.30pm between Dublin and Kilkenny - now spread out in a stream of storms moving west.

I’m currently on a bus in the Irish Midlands and we’ve left some big thunderstorms behind to the west. There was constant lightning for a while!

You better not still be flashing those ill fitting love globule containers Wooders.  I built my own neolithic solar observatory and sacrificed 13 cats to put an end that shite.

Three-hour strategy meeting yesterday afternoon. Held outside in deck chairs because why the fuck not. Sunburned today. At least it’s cooler, and it’d have been worse if yesterday hadn’t been cooler with intermittent cloud cover (and I took care to sit with my back to the sun).

The slug thing's a bit weird.  I get loads, think it's because the floor is cool and dampish so they slink in and regale themselves.  Worst part is, they're quite large and accidentally stepping on them in the dark, they pop and splodge up between the toes horribly, leaves one with physical revulsion, a nasty mess and a terrible karmic burden.  I fervently wish they'd choose another path if I'm honest.

Eek, nightmare. I once left a couple of gardening gloves outside in the twilight, picked them up and put my hand in one,only to find a couple of slugs had sought refuge inside. Squelch.

Big green was back today and brought along a little black friend. Both got hurled to the far end of the garden, from where they will inevitably find their way back after a couple of days.

Metric fuckton of slugs in our garden today. I’d use my trusty trowel to flick them over the fence into the garden of the people we hate, but they sold that part of their garden to our actual neighbours who we get on with.
