Wednesday 1st July – Canada Day for some, and the hottest day of the year so far in the UK.
The kind of day where it feels like you’re walking through soup, and chugging three litres of water (truth!) does nothing to replace the fluids you’ve lost.
Where you worry you’re going to pass out. Or contemplate shaving your head.
Where your skin feels too tight, and dry, despite the schvitzing, and your feet swell to three times their size, testing the boundaries of your most comfortable sandals.
Where your hands are so sticky, you can’t work the touchscreen on anything.
Where sweat trickles down the back of your legs, and you’re too frazzled to care. Even the pretty people are looking a bit wan today.
Where you contemplate filling the paddling pool, adding ice, sticking your feet in, and reading your book in the garden….wait, this is possible….see you later!
