Microdermabrasion free every time you step outside and plenty of grit in any exposed orifice in this dust bowl. Really hope it stops soon!

it has been quite breezy here, (w mids) and we were not even under the "windy" bit. it looks quite bad up there.

it as quite warm here though, warm enough to walk around bare foot... but i now have saandy feet as ds played in the sandpit upstairs (yes indoors, it is a flat) and I forgot to sweep and hoover. getting sand in eyes mouth nose as well would not be pleasant.

Blimey. How common is it during gales?

I am 40, lived in Scotland all my life and have never seen it like this before, it isn't usually so dry, been wildfires in the west and droughts too!

I think that those of us south of you have been receiving your usual weather. Would you like it back?
