Until two days ago, the record highest temperature measured in The Netherlands was in Summer 1944, 37,8C. Yesterday Eindhoven became the hottest ever measured at 38,9 and today that record was broken again, is now 40,7 in Gilze-Rijen (half an hour drive from here).

The heat brought on a lot of smog. Walking outside is intense. I've never experienced such heat, not even on holiday in Portugal. And I hope I'll never experience it again. '

Good thing DED bought a fan a few weeks ago!

"On 24 January 2019 the official Adelaide weather observation station (West Terrace) reached a new record high temperature of 46.6 įC (115.9 įF), breaking the 1939 previous record."

Last summer in Adelaide was quite brutal. When we move back over here, it'll be at least 100 miles north of London.

Clever!

The worst heat has fortunately subsided. The heatwave coincided with the biggest, best-known and most expensive funfair in The Netherlands. They lost a lot of business over it.

We have seen it before, but that time it was heavily overcast, damp and freezing. We had been hoping to get some summery pictures this time.

Went to the funfair but didn't enjoy myself.

Perhaps I'm getting old...

Yes, but what gives you the fun?
When did the noble hammock turn from "fun" into "a sure way to embarrass yourself" for me?

What gives me fun? Music, family and travel. I haven't been into fun fairs since I was about eighteen, but I enjoyed taking my kids.

What is the noble hammock and what does it have to do with a fun fair?

At last year's funfair they'd installed a number of hammocks. I was tempted to try one but with my weight I didn't dare to do it. Where where the days when I leapt in carefree?

Had a rough moment today - one of our clients was on holiday with his wife, when, in the holiday home they'd booked with us, she suffered a heart attack on top of the stairs. She fell down and laid in her own blood for some time.
The trauma helicopter ushered her to the hospital, where she was stabilized, but she unfortunately passed away during the night.

A colleague was set to write a condolance card, she asked me for help and I ended up writing most of it. We both had to brush away tears a couple of times.
