AIBU to expect my washing to dry when I put it out on July 29th.?

foofi Wed 29-Jul-09 11:01:05

Perfect weather for washing here - sunny and windy! grin

AnyFucker Wed 29-Jul-09 11:09:18

pissing it down here, every day since Sunday

lovely weather for my 2 weeks of annual leave

I fucking hate the British summer, I don't know why I am so disappointed every year, why do I not learn ???

Yanbu. AF sums it all up neatly for me. I'm just the same - never learn. Well next year we're def not staying in thes country for another dose of thissadhmm

I see the met office are getting it in the neck for mis-forecasting the summer weather (againhmm)

foofi Wed 29-Jul-09 11:56:40

It's coming you way foofi then you'll be angry like the rest of us.


I have tons of washing going smelly as I just refuse to put a tumble drier on in bloody JULY!!!!

Sorry for shouting but am sick of 4 years of shit summer.

However, I have booked my first holiday abroad in 3 years so counting the seconds til that grin

I have my central heating on to dry washing

I don't have a tumble drier

We need the heating actually, the thermostat was showing 14deg this morning shock

MoontheMightyThreadKiller Wed 29-Jul-09 13:35:05

See, how wrong is that? Central Heating in July?? <hides in corner, crying and remembering the boiling hot summers of my youth through a hazy mist - the rain!>

AnyFucker Wed 29-Jul-09 13:37:08

I am sitting here in a dark room (very gloomy outside), listening to the rain, with the central heating on.


Have we fast-forwarded to November ??

If you're in the UK, YAB slighly Unreasonable to expect dry washing in the summer.

With the odd exception of a freaky, baking summer, like several years ago, this is how it generally is. This is summer holidays British styley.

YANBU, however, in moaning about the weather. It's a crock. And the weather people promised so much for this year

MoontheMightyThreadKiller Wed 29-Jul-09 13:38:32

I have the lights on because I will bump into furniture otherwise.

i think November is normally warmer and drier than this.

When I had DS1 (2004) I had the whole of that summer off and it was just lovely. Why is it too much to expect more than a week of sun from April to September?

We currently camping and feel fortunate that it stayed dry for long enough to put tent up Monday. Been raining pretty much since then.
On here drying out!!

MoontheMightyThreadKiller Wed 29-Jul-09 13:43:53

Lilyloo I want to cry for you.

hope you don't have what we had in Bavaria until last week - 5 solid weeks of rain. I think it didn't rain for 2 of those days. Otherwise it rained, and I mean really heavy, massive thunder & lightening etc etc for 5 weeks. Now it's stopped raining and it's too hot to go out hmm

MoontheMightyThreadKiller Wed 29-Jul-09 14:00:59

Riven, maybe consider packing a change of clothes and some towels in readiness!! grin

Hope appt goes OK.

No community transport set-ups for just your situation ?

Riven, I love your pics and wish life wasn't so hard

bleh Wed 29-Jul-09 14:16:46

Well, I'm in the middle of "fan-gate" at work. The stupid ridiculous men in the team, who are set near the window, have decided they are hot and have switched their oscillating fan on. I have asked them to switch it off. I'm sat in my coat in the office, in july. They refused. I now have a heater on as well. Idiots.
