Re: question for cohabitating couples

it is extremely hot this week and only getting hotter in Switzerland. so following the advice of this thread and real live people, too, I've been trying to let in the cold air in the morning, and then shutting the windows before I go to work.

The problem is that, as soon as I shut the windows, the air becomes stiffling and I start to sweat. It's not fair!!!! So then I open the windows back to try and create a breeze and run the fans all day.

And now I'm going to whine about it on EF. I'm hoping that by Sunday, others will join me. Thanks!!!

Damn. I'm going to have to call the electrician back.
To fill the space in that big, wide bed?

I am thinking that most people will be outside trying to avoid the stifling indoors and the lack of airconditioning.

Re: question for cohabitating couples

Our 2 separate double beds don't look half as pretty as our old SuperKing 4 poster bed - but it is soooo comfy and cool - old houses like ours do have huge rooms. Up here in the Jura, it always cools down at night with a little breeze - purrfect - and Pudding the cat also has plenty of space to stretch out.

4 poster will be in guest bedroom when I've decorated it.

Is that an invite?
