Yesterday was brutal, weatherwise. It hit 38C (100F) in London. We aren't geared towards these sort of insane temperatures. We don't have A/C and houses are designed to keep heat, not lose it. So while it was slightly cooler out in the sticks, where my parents are, by yesterday evening my mum's bedroom was only slightly cooler than the surface of Venus. Every upstairs window was
open, but there was no breeze to lift the relentless heat and stuffiness.
Luckily the temperature dropped by several degrees today. Still too warm, though. Should really
open a window, but I live in a ground floor flat and do not feel comfortable with leaving the window
open all night.
I've got in touch with a local notary about
signing my documents. I suspect it'll cost a bit, but at this point I don't care - I'm getting so bored of this now!
@Karen - I've got a sick feeling of dread and disgust to my stomach. This is a coup. We've turned into a banana republic, only without the bananas and we've got a monarchy. I feel so horribly powerless. A pro-Boris/pro no deal disinformation campaign has already begun on Facebook, probably in readiness for a general election this autumn.
At least you guys have a real
opposition. We don't even have that. The opposition parties range from useless to appalling. We are living in the worst possible timeframe. Somewhere in a parallel universe, there is a formidable remain alliance dedicated to preventing the alt right takeover of the UK and destruction of its economy. In this timeframe, the opposition might as well all give up their jobs and go home, because all they can do is squabble and grandstand amongst themselves. Plus the Labour leadership is pro-Brexit, pro-1970s style socialism, anti-reality. I'm a lifelong Labour voter who won't vote Labour anymore, because it's been hijacked by the clueless, witless hardliners.
Apologies for the rant - I'll shut up now.
@Trina - I'm sorry you had to give up work. It sounds like you were good at your job and enjoyed it. It must have been difficult to accept.
By the way, thanks for the app recommendation - I'll look it up in the Google playstore.
Sorry to rush, folks, but my stomach is hurting quite a bit and I want to lie down. Too much venting of my spleen has hurt my stomach <_<.
Goodnight everyone. Take care, all of you.
