Heatwaving on with my life

Published July 16, 2013 by iftheshoefits

I’m from the north of Scotland, so to me this delightful weather is a heatwave – my blood starts to boil at about 24 degrees celsius so I’m way out of my comfort zone.

This summer reminds me of when we first moved down here in 2004 – I couldn’t believe how much warmer it was than the beautiful (but windy) north east.  And humid – I’d never experienced anything like it.  Neither had my hair.

I do love it though – it’s a bit too hot for me – but I’d rather this than the endless winter we’ve just kissed goodbye to.  At home, we don’t have inbuilt air-con so I just have an electric fan with a long lead that I take into each room – low tech, but boy does it help.  And the other half’s off exploring again, so I don’t have to share the bed – that would make it much harder – he’s big and he’s hairy – not the ideal combo for clammy nights.

But the sunshine brings out the best of everything so I’m happy for it to last all summer long.
