We had got away with the worst heat so far (only been reaching low 20s here on the East coast) so I’ve been coping quite well, plus I’ve been at work and my office is the coldest spot in the whole building which was deliberately chosen for me.
However today temperatures have suddenly shot up to 30 after a cool, rainy day yesterday. I had lots planned for today but did nothing! I walked 100m to Tesco’s and back and was worn out. Ended up sleeping for 2 hours this afternoon with the fan directed straight at me.
Tonight the temp is forecast to be 20 so I have a hot water bottle chilling in the fridge ready to take to bed, will sleep under a thin sheet, fan by the bed. Bottle of Magicool and a bottle of cold water with an ice stick in it next to the bed in case I wake up hot and sweaty.
I’m also a fan of cooling neck scarves and skimpy vest tops and shorts.
