I am.

My bedroom has returned to its sauna like temperatures, despite me having two fans facing me…

I’ve done Wordle, got the radio on and taken some painkillers in the hope that they might help matters.

I might have to get up and eat something…

I've just gone down to get some chilled water from fridge, but did sleep solidly till now. Played one WordswithFriends2.

Steamed! Breakfast no.1 consumed.

Seen you over on the wordle thread, Fanny and I hope the painkillers have kicked in now.

Back to bed now 📚

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 02:44:47

Yes, awake and hot here. Too hot to even go and get a cool drink.
I'd like a jubbly, really.

FannyCornforth Thu 11-Aug-22 03:06:37

Hello again (sigh)
I’m back.
I’ve just been playing a stupid matching game on my phone.
Cs ‘breakfast number one’ grin

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 03:12:17

I've been playing a bubble popping one on mine.
It is soooooo hot in here.

FannyCornforth Thu 11-Aug-22 03:22:35

You’re down South aren’t you MissA?
It must be horrendous, especially if you aren’t feeling too good.
I just could not get comfortable at all yesterday.
Roll on next week 🌧

I’ve just read the thread about banana blossom. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it before

Hi Fanny , fairfraise ,Cs and Miss A ,

I'm still awake .

I'm awake until the early hours nearly every day .

And then , I'm tired !

We should set up a group for insomniacs !
Oh for sleep !

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:16:57

I know.
The name sounds delicious, but the jury seems to be out on the taste.

Yeah I'm in the south, and my flat just seems to absorb the heat.

My fingers have swollen up and my ring was stuck on!

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:21:18

It doesn't even look like a hand! shock

It is a full moon too, it often keeps people awake. My hatch has been open all night and I came down to open the doors and windows. Very restless last night

Esmay Thu 11-Aug-22 04:22:30

I'm going to try to sleep now.
I have prickly heat from trying to save my plants .
I've given up with jewellery-poor you MissA .

Rain might mean floods as the ground is like concrete and how many people have had their front gardens paved over ?

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:24:08

There are (I think I read somewhere) a lot more awful crimes committed during full moons.

Interesting, even if I did make it up in my own head.

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:26:04

It didn't feel a rainy sort of heat today.
It was more as it would be abroad, but I don't like that, either.

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:27:57

I hope you get off to sleep, Esmay.
What a pretty name. smile

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:31:20

At least if it rains I won't have to buy a new watering can!

karmalady Thu 11-Aug-22 04:34:13

The word luna (r) tic. Full moon madness

4 more days of this, nights are worse

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:37:10

I'm full of beans now, and will be like an ha'porth of soap after a hard days wash, tomorrow.

FannyCornforth Thu 11-Aug-22 04:37:44

DH’s family all swear that his dad went a bit barmy when there was a full moon.

The moon also affects women’s (yes! Womem’s) menstrual cycles.
And I remember something about when you live with other women your cycles end up synchronising.
I don’t know if this is a myth, but it happened to me and two friends when we were living together for three years.

I’m going to have to try some banana blossom (yes, it does sound delightful) but I’ve no idea what I’m going to do with it.
I never deep fry anything. Nothing to do with health, more to do with smell.

FannyCornforth Thu 11-Aug-22 04:39:02

I don’t know why or how I typed ‘womem’

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:40:01

Yes, it's true about menstruating at the same time as your housemates.
It'll also happen if you introduce a man into the mix, even faster.

FannyCornforth Thu 11-Aug-22 04:40:40

You just can’t do anything in this weather
It seems like just a waste of time.
I feel so sorry for people who have to work in it

MissAdventure Thu 11-Aug-22 04:42:03

I expect you could coat the banana blossom and oven bake it into little strips or something.
That's my recipe of the day. smile
I can't cook really.

Wow! That’s really interesting.
There was a man for a while, but he was a very closeted gay man…
