Over the last few days it has been quite hot here. It got to over 41°c today, and as I write this at seven thirty in the evening it is still about 38°c (101°F).
Annoyingly, more of the same is forecast in the coming week. Yuck.
Since I knew it was going to be so hot I went down to the shop on Thursday night and bought some watermelon.
For the kids you ask? No, the chickens. Well, some was for us, but the chickens love it and I thought a nice cold chunk of it would help cool the poor things down a bit.
They were very pleased to see me and my treat and it was quickly devoured. The things we do for pets!
