No air conditioned here.... I’m up at 5.30 and out walking the dogs by 6.15 in the dark, home by 7.30. Until 10am I do the chores and then that’s it until
8/9 pm that’s when I do anything else.

Hoovering the gravel is something I have recently discovered. We always wanted Boogievilleadoddahs or however you spell it - until we got a 10m hedge of the beggars! Spikes are lethal and the flowers are not nice when they are in yer gravel!

Well with the highest temperatures barely touching 25C today - there were no excuses to hide
indoors today, no doubt I must be saving a small fortune on unnecessary air con over the
summer months.

My daughter is in Córdoba - daytime temps 36º+, nighttime it drops to about 14º!

Here in Jávea we had a high of 28.2 yesterday, but it only dropped to 23º overnight.


She spent July in Córdoba last year too, & upon returning to Jávea she complained that it was too hot here! Don't ever underestimate the effects of humidity! Nor the relief of cool nights.

Dry heat in Córdoba - almost wet heat here.

I must be still getting used to the heat, I live quite close to you but I thought it was about 50 yesterday - Google said 30, but she lies, she said it was going to cloudy all day today!
Hopefully I'll acclimatise soon, we have lived in Thailand and Australia so have a good idea what heat (and humidity) is like. My wife loves the heat so one of us is happy, me, I turn into a vampire when it's hot, I stay out of the sun and drink blo..... beer. That was tricky in Thailand as I was a scuba instructor and not everybody wants to learn at night the selfish wotsits!

When we were looking for the 'happy ever after' casa we thought we would save a quid and not bother with a pool - thank the sky-fairy we abandoned that idea, I don't care how much the water and the electrickery costs. A swim in the sea at 07:30 then into the pool at 18:30, flippin' luvverly!

until you realise that your 'flippin luvverly' pool is the local breeding ground for the neighbourhood's mosquitoes...

Just consider yourselves lucky that you are not in the le Gard département in France, one commune had 45.9 deg the other day, and it remained very hot throughout the night (high 20s I think). France has beaten all records with its latest heatwave and will significantly contribute to the very high temps experienced across Europe at the end of June, and the highest temps on record I believe. Now there are significant hailstorms in many areas, but at least temps have returned to more normal summer temps, well - for the time being. At least where I lived, although we brushed 40 degrees, it was not officially a heatwave with temps dropping below 20 at night. But, as elsewhere in France, the extremely hugh humidity certainly made the high temps difficult to cope with. I have to wonder whether Spain is going to have more bearable temps than much of France.
