july heatwave

It was the hottest July since records began - to adapt Bob Dylan, I didn't feel so hot then. In fact, I don't know if I'm just getting acclimatised, or if there was more movement of air than there has been at other hot times, but I didn't find it too bad - I think I only slept downstairs with the back door open twice this summer, and that as much for Bethan's benefit as mine.

It was really hot when I came down to London first in July 1989 - I was having cold showers every day, having never had a cold shower before in my life.
