So..hotter again! Was 32 here in London today (89.6F). People fainting all over the place, particularly the tube. They get hundreds of people keeling over down there on a warm day. Used to get called to some of them, when I walked a beat.
Still, by tomorrow morning it might have dropped to the low 20s. Maybe. but not in the city, I wouldn't imagine. Just in time to heat up again :)
Fashions - always questionable - are becoming truly hysterical. Roads still melting. Railway lines buckling. Tempers fraying. Lots of people drowning.
The dogs are loving the ice-sticks, though. I've promised Sherlock I'll get some ice-lollies on the go in the freezer tonight, too. And we've given the degus some ice cubes to play with too.
Sherlock really wanted to go to a watery park tonight, but it's way out of town, so he's going to have to wait.
I'm gearing up to see Mum at the weekend. Sherlock doesn't want to. I've tried to sweeten the general deal with promises of paddling pools. I'm not sure he's buying it.
I've been at a horrible crime scene most of the day. House fire, so that sort of smell that gets right into you throat. We've all been sweating buckets, which isn't very nice in our paper suits. Sticky.
Very happy to get home to discover John, Sherlock and Mycroft had bought us a huge watermelon. Like this one:
But, you know, less...ferocious. More edible.
I've sort of lost my mind today. I don't know what else I was going to talk about.
Keep hearing this, so have it.
One of our forensic techs came in today. She's just had a baby. 12 days old, he is. Looking like a small cooked lobster. He was very yawny and wriggly and scrunched.
