I fell asleep after my lunch and woke up half way through the News which was still about the weather and how it had reached over forty degrees at Heathrow. I was very thirsty and didn't feel at all well. Now, at three o.clock and several glasses of water later I am almost back to normal and a strong hot wind has got up.
It is now bed time and I feel more or less alright although there is no doubt that the very hot weather (forty degrees) has really taken it out of me today. Our Falls at Aysgarth on the River Swale in Swaledale have dried up completely - something which doesn't happen often.
I'll be back on form tomorrow - slightly cooler this evening.
