Forecasters are predicting the hottest weekend of the year so far, with temperatures expected to hit 32C (86F).
Parts of England and Wales will be hotter than Tunisia on Sunday and the Met Office is warning fair-skinned people of a very high risk of sunburn.

How hot does it get down that neck of the woods? Don't forget the sun cream on the family and the pig. Actually I prefer a large hat and long sleeved shirt to sun cream, might look a bit daft on a pig though.

Hurrah - I bought a parasol yesterday (not a sun person, me - big hats and shade!) so I can hide under it all day. I was finding that I was spending lovely days inside, cos it was too hot out, and we have no shade in the garden.

It has been a fab day here, and we have discovered at least 20 holes in the paddling pool, that obviously wasn't put away very well last year

The pig sorts himself out these days .... he loves to bathe in the mud then come evening he spends his time scrubbing all the mud off on the walls of his hut. I can't see the hut lasting long if this continues ... he really rocks the place

Oooh it's been so lovely - I've had a fab day pottering around the garden, having neglected it in favour of the allotment for a while. I can finally get onto my patio, having at last shifted all the pots of herbs to the far end of the garden for a while (I've been meaning to do that since March!!).

The thermometer said 38 degrees in my greenhouse

I've made up about 5 litres of elderflower cordial and bunged a load in the freezer, should keep me going till next year. And of course I've been to the allotment like the good girl I am, picked some lovely peas and scoffed the lot raw, before I even left, and came away with nearly half a pound of alpine strawberries (my back's killing me!!!)

This is the life

Ours read 41 when I got up this morning .... and it just kept getting hotter from then. We didn't dare re-check the thermometer later but we havn't got alot done as it has been too hot here.

It is OK when you are here for the hols but hard work when you ain't!
