It's much cooler downstairs but she still insists on hanging around with me in the sweatbox, also known as my upstairs office. (apologies for the knobbly blinding white knees)


And comparison shot for when we first got her at 8 weeks.

Dogs do not give a poo poo about the heat if it means being close to the human they love. My two insisted the other day in sleeping on my bed and who was I to refuse?

We have a pre-pay gas meter box at the front of the house that needs to be opened to top up. There's an absolute beast of a spider living inside. I guess any bug that crawls in through the gap at the bottom of the box has no chance of escape so it's been dining easy for a while.

Because of all the pipes and widgets in there there's no way to easily get it out.

The office dog is not coping well with the heat. She now barks a lot rather than just jiggling merrily at you for strokes/food.

Room temp water in a jug with coffee grounds in the bottom. Don't stir. Leave for 12 hours to brew.
Strain it off, then chill it.
You can brew it in the fridge but it takes twice as long.

If you want it faster you can just make iced coffee. Make a normal coffee, let it cool then put it in the fridge/add ice. But iced coffee and cold brew have very different flavours.

Also avoid walks between 9am and 8pm as anything above 20c is getting too warm for a walk, especially if your dog has breathing problems.

Spoon in your coffee

Put milk in about a fifth to quarter of the way up the cup/glass

Stir really really hard to make a kind of syrup

Pour in milk the rest of the way

What I do is make espresso (well, use my moka pot) and then just top a shot of that up with water and ice then add milk. If you've got a blender, that works even better so you can make a coffee slushie.

Regular blueberries go from fresh to mouldy in about a day in this kind of weather. I hope those discount blueberries went into the freezer ASAP.

I mean, any berry of any sort should go straight in the fridge, of course, but said fridge will be the same temperature now as in the depths of winter?

It's good to try both. One is a cold brew the other is an iced coffee, they have very different flavours even if you use the same grounds.

The coffee I'm drinking at the moment has "notes of stone fruits, strawberries and cream" :smug:.
If I'm honest, I taste the stone fruits but not the strawberries and cream.
The last batch I had was notes of 'Cantaloupe melon and caramel' it was delicious.
