The World Health Organisation recommends 24 degrees Centigrade as a maximum working temperature. But it's a recommendation, not law, so we can't leave the office, boo. If you're reading this at some point in the future, there's a good chance today is / will be / was the hottest day EVER. I had been hearing the hottest day ever was in 1911 (and not sure I'd trust measurements from such a primitive age...) but that Guardian piece says that was just the hottest July day, and the hottest recorded day was in Kent in 2003.
The two sets of developers this week both want their properties to be toxin-free and environmentally friendly. Claire has some seriously wacky ways of achieving this in her East End terrace in London, such as putting crystals under the floorboards and using orange lights in the loo to stimulate the lympathic system. Her ideas are so outlandish, she makes Julie and JP's mania for using recycled and reclaimed material (for which read junk) in their suburban flat seem positively sane. What's remarkable is how Sarah Beeny manages to bite her tongue, particularly when Claire goes off on another mad tangent. But it makes for entertaining TV.
Got to have a look at my code, no-one can log in, I hope it's just the heat, but it doesn't seem too likely...
