    So do any of you have any exciting plans for the school holidays after a few days lying in late? Anyone coming to Yorkshire? It's not so hot here as the south this week - just purrrrfect, purrr.

    Then do nothing at all on Thursday.

    I think that for many, top of the list will be keeping cool, if possible, next week.

    I'll be cool. I'll be frozen, like I am every other sodding day at work when the office fascist has the aircon on full blast because she's too hot.
    But on Thursday I'll be toasty :D.

    I'll be joining younger daughter as she house/puppy/cat sits for her line manager's family, in Solihull.
    Will have a few days out...probably Crosby beach.... maybe a day in the Lakes (have to get to the Langdale Chase for lunch!)
    Anglesey show is cancelled for me as the horse section is off because of equine flu - so no horsey things all hols... tho might arrange pony carriage driving day for the Solihull kiddies and my last pupil as my friend runs child taster sessions.
    Then just 2 afternoon work sessions first week in Sept and then .... 2 week cruise to the western Med in a suite on a super ship (Celebrity Silhouette) and no @EmanuelShadrack I am spending the children's inheritance - it's not that I am minted. Reckoned there was a fair chance this might be the last year I am 'fit' enough to cruise. (Will have a butler....but no idea what to do with one! )

    Working. As I will be for most of the next two months. Sigh. I do miss the Summer Holidays. And next week, spare a thought for me at funeral services in black jacket and tights, because I have to look Smart. (I will also be wearing other clothes too - not just jacket and tights. That sounds rather niche.)
    But then, in September, I will go away for a week, perhaps to Suffolk, when it will be peaceful and restful and all the children will be back at school. ;)

    Me too, since I left teaching for a non-teaching role a few years ago. But I do not miss the Summer Holidays. I do not particularly like the Summer heat (or the constant summer rain we often get throughout August) but I do like the cooler but still warm days of September. So I have two weeks leave for then which will mean more to me then having August off.

    Off to a theme park or two. Being a spy at Casino Royale (Secret Cinema). Day trips. Build a robot or two...

    Have you considered measured and controlled violence to resolve this tricky situation?

    I am a married man, father of children, living in retirement. What makes you think I will have nothing to do on Monday?

    Finished last Thursday been away but only to find this board has been invaded by UKIP, Brexit party and Tory members. Why do I bother.

    Yes, those of us in 'retirement' don't have a long summer holiday, for sure.

    Alternatively, you could take in an electric fire and keep it near your desk - or a hot water bottle kept close to the chest? Warm socks? A thick blanket to wrap around you? Or a stiff whisky? Getting sillier and siller. You were the only person who enjoyed yesterday whilst the rest of us ran with water and didn't know where to put ourselves.

    You're looking to see who might end up in the Lubyanka?
