The stupid over reaction to this hot weather AKA Summer is laughable. And the sheeple are just lapping it up like good boys and girls. I just find it all very weird how easily peoples heads are turned from one lot of nonsense to the next, ridiculous!🙄

I have never watched Friends or Love island. They just don't appeal to me at all, but if they give you a laugh and a bit of escapism, then that is a good thing isn't it?

I'm not watching these leadership debates because they're all just puppets of the same master, so I'm not interested tbh.

Well hopefully everyone here survives the apocalypse of this extreme weather event to be able to join Abi again tomorrow. Be seeing you!😎xx

I agree with everything in your post Louise. Yes, it’s hot but we should be enjoying it, not staying at home scared of the sun. Every year people go abroad to find these temperatures. I’m surprised that GB News are also part of this red weather warning nonsense. I cannot watch the leadership debates, every one of them will be a nightmare as PM.

Basil loves sunlight – I've got a dozen pots on windowsill they get abt 12 hours sun a day, grow from (cheap) seeds, you can start plucking leaves in abt 3 weeks, just keep them watered. They make you eat a lot of tomatoes… enough, I'm rambling now…

Hi Abs and all friends...

Had a lazy day, remembering the sweltering 1976 , weeks of relentless heat, long before the fake Climate Change was ever rammed down our throats. We took it for granted until weather changed, shared baths, chucked washing up water over the plants, children came home from school red in the face, and were placed in a cool bath to bring them round. Did anyone make a fuss? Nah!!

Can just imagine you in the bathroom, recording, Abi.. ( the sound was good, yes) . Must say I've never watched either Friends or Love Island.. I'm now watching less and less TV. Just read on Twatter that the Gov intends to tax every household for a TV licence whether or not they even HAVE one..! What on earth are they thinking up next, to rob us? All I want to do is sleep. Suppose I'm excused on age grounds, eh? Whew. Catch you all soon , lots of love! xxx

I love this warm weather, lived in South Africa for 5 years so this is nowt! Loved your comments about Friends, such a great programme, I laugh out loud at every episode and seen them all repeatedly, great if I’m feeling down. Keep up the good work Abi, can’t wait for the Crunt merchandise, stay stupid x

Good evening everyone and hope you’ve had a lovely weekend.

You sound so much brighter Abs 👍💪🥰

Only just listened as left my phone in my mum’s car as I’d taken her shopping.

Over 7 hours I was without it🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Can’t wait for the merch Abi, how exciting 😁😁.

Limoncello is always in my fridge, I love it really cold. I recently had a limoncello in a local Italian restaurant in a fancy shaped glass. I asked the owner if I could buy one of the glasses and he said “no darling, it’s free”. We have never had such crazy red warnings about hot sunny weather in July before. The Covid compliance means that the government now treats us like children, who have to be told to put on sunscreen and wear a hat🤷‍♀️

Have you had the limoncello cream? Lovely

No Alison, only because I thought the limoncello cream might be a bit sickly. May be I should give it a go!

Clear as crystal Abi thank you and it was lovely to hear from you . Yes we are to lurch from one crisis to the next if they had their way. Not us!

I love basil with tomatoes and plenty of garlic! ….My plants never last either ..

Sleep well all

❤️❤️
