Hot is an understatement.

I never thought that I would have to put on heat oil protection on my hair for going out in the sun in the uk. I also got sunburnt yesterday so now have to wear a quarter length sleeved loose top to prevent all the top of my shoulders and back burning again. I have my lily white legs out today but they probably won’t even change colour much. They don’t get burnt so easily due to not being directly facing sun when walking. I left it until late afternoon to go out. That is how they manage in hot countries. The family who owns the local shop come from sri lanka and apparently they don’t do things outside until after 6pm in the evening because the climate is so hot during the day. In Spain they all go inside (apart from idiot tourists) for a few hours in the middle of the day until late in the afternoon. If the uk climate changes to this more often we are going to have to change the way we do things.
