Post Comment Love - 22-24th July 2022

Welcome back to #PoCoLo with Stephanie from Lifeat139a and I. This weekend I'm in Southport for the English Open Golf working with the TV Production Crew. It's a role I did in Dubai and Abu Dhabi over the previous few years and I've missed being involved. It's not the same just watching on TV at home. It doesn't pay as well as you'd think, but it does cover my fuel and hotel costs and a flight on Monday from Liverpool to Belfast to visit our Grandson. I'd love to do more but have had to turn other offers down due to working in a school and being limited with when I can have time off.

I really enjoyed the weather this week. School closed on Monday and Tuesday due to threat of life with the weather. Whilst I know it was too hot for some, we loved being able to just sit outside, have the windows open and enjoy a gentle breeze.

It made such a difference to living in Dubai where day temps all summer were in the 40s and the air con was on full time, with windows and doors shut, humidity that would leave your drenched, no drop in temps between direct sunlight and shade and we could still drive the car without the steering wheel and seat belt buckle burning us alive.

This photo was the highest we recorded the car temp in Dubai in June 2016. 

Our cold water tap ran at 30c during the night and up to 40c during the day.

We were still able to get cold water out the tap this week in the UK to drink and to have a cold shower in the evenings.

  1. Oof, that's hot! Way too hot for me. But then I live in a place where we have more of a chance of frozen water pipes than hot tap water. Stay cool, my friend!
