It's really causing some trouble
so many people all of a ka'fuffle
There are amber warnings and impending drought
I'll worn Barbara next door, she has all her top flesh out!
This hot weather is changing how we live
it's hotter than a boiler on a steamy locomotive
So typical the Brits they canna cope
we struggle in the heat and give up all hope
We moan when we are hot and when we are too cold
I would go outside for my feet they will scold
Ebay are selling fast on fans
and Tesco are running low on fizzy pop cans
Drink water they say and keep yourself cool
don't go outside without cream on you fool
To stay inside at midday is sensible you know
isn't that what they told us in six inches of snow?
It is a muggy humid kind of heat
It's a different kind on the island of Crete
They have fresher hot weather there and in the Med
you don't sweat buckets like here when you're sleeping in bed
Feel sorry for some as it's hotter elsewhere
but then they may have machines that condition the air
So suck it up buttercups, pop on ya bikinis and budgie smuggling trunks
it's only a few months till we're breaking ice from our pipes in humungous chunks
Thanks for reading today

Free From Friday
Take care for now
It isn't very summery at the moment. We seem to be experiencing a lot of rain and cooler temperatures, much too cool for August. This may be my fault. as the temperatures seem to have plummeted ever since I bought an oscillating fan from the last heatwave we had a few weeks ago so I may have jinxed the summer. Not used it since I bought it, typical eh? It is sitting in my living room just longing to be used.
Hey it could be super hot though just like the rest of Europe, may have to be careful what I wish for as that is the extreme of summer. Sitting here writing this post though this morning it does seem to be brightening up slightly so fingers crossed everyone lets hope we get a bit of summer after all.
This inspired me to write my verse for today, hope you like it.......
Where Has The Summer Gone
It's more like bloomin' autumn
August needs a big kick up the bum
The sun I believe has shone
but where's the blinkin' summer gone?
We should be doing some sweatin'
but instead we are doing more frettin'
Got an umbrella anyone?
Oh where has the summer gone?
Cool and cloudy it seems every day
looking very dodgy as some would say
The dark clouds have jolly well won
but where has the summer gone?
The rest of Europe have got it hot
maybe we should be thankful for what we have got
School holidays the kids are upon
So where is the summer? Just where has it gone?
I believe it is coming our way
brightening up, maybe today
A day trip we're going on
So prove to me summer's not gone
I'll just have to wait and see
if the high temperatures are meant to be
Is this weather just all a complete con?
Or is the summer really all gone?
It's the typical British way
get on with it, come what may
Thicker stuff we are said to be made from
I don't believe it's all over, and this summer has all gone.
Optimistic eh? Well a bit of positive thinking doesn't do anything any harm, lets just hope.
