My son sent me an email and at the bottom was a footnote: 熱いですね！！！ So, for your amusement and a little bit of edification, I have translated it into other various languages:
Thing is, today it will get really HOT here in West Wales. So, if you also live where it will be hot today please look after the vulnerable and animals in your care. Give them shade, give them plenty to drink and encourage that. Also if you have to be out in a vehicle, you need to have plenty of water with you. If you get stuck in traffic, you will need some to drink and have some to splash yourself with. Top up the wipers with water too… And now of course, I’ve imagined someone with a bucket of water on the back seat and during an emergency breaking, the water going all over and them saying “Oh buck it!”
Now everyone who has access to water, be bloody thankful FFS!!! I’m getting an insight into the horrors of living in a hot climate, for work yesterday was grim. My face under the mask and face shield went salty dog, my combat trousers got sticky on my legs and as I walked my feet sang to me “Horse with no name!”
As I went to get in the bath, my sock walked off of my feet all by themselves, like little stiff robots. I will be taking precautions today, there will be cool clothing and fully charged phone… “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.” ~ Shakespeare
Later on addendum: I’m glad I had some cold water in a nice clean bottle, for I chanced upon an accident and was able to help keep someone hydrated, some Liverpudlian called John. I stayed around a while due to my first aid training, to make sure no one went into shock. Anyways, his car looked trashed, airbags saved him though, but the driver side took out loads of the barrier and got crushed at the side of Pengawse Hill. Otherwise he would have gone down a steep embankment and been proper, seriously hurt!
I took a photo of the car on my phone:

Wow, well done for helping that man, was it really John? And great tips about the water 👍

He was lucky and probably the worst part will be bruised ribs.
