It's too hot!!!

Your Theme Song is Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf
"I like smoke and lightningHeavy metal thunderRacin' with the windAnd the feelin' that I'm under"
A total independent spirit, you can't be held down or fenced in.You crave the feeling of wind on your face... and totally freedom.

Okay, so I haven't posted on Dialogue yet... I will. Really. Just as soon as I finish MELTING. I live in Ireland for crying out loud. I'm designed for rain. I am not designed to be slow roasted. And I'm blonde. I burn. And I live in a wooden cabin. Which is like being slow roasted in a wood burning stove. Did I mention I BURN???

So I've taken to transporting my wonderous Alphasmart to the waterfall, avec blanket, cushion and bottle of Diet Coke (which goes in the river with some string attached to a rock to keep it cool) 'cos it's the only place that doesn't feel like the top shelf of an oven. But there's no internet connection there. And by the time I come back in to the sweltering hot cabin in the evening and transfer my work across, I'm pooped...

So, can I do it tomorrow? Pweeze?

Did I mention HOW HOT IT IS???

A couple of friends and I are thinking of emmigrating to an igloo. Fancy coming along?! I am FRYING. I can't bear this weather, I was not designed for the heat. You have my every sympathy as Scotland is as much of a furnace as Ireland. It's unnatural for us. Roll on autumn, I say.

I'm melting with ya, Trish. My heavily Scottish influenced genes don't appreciate the temp either. And I BURN too. (BURN - It has to be in capital letters, doesn't it, when your pink and puffy and tender).

Can you hang onto some of this warm weather for September?
I have no idea what to pack!!!

Trish said...

And igloo sounds pretty darn good to me Mags!!!! Can I have that in cave size please?

Doesn't BURNING bite? I tell myself every year that I won't let it happen again... and then the sun comes out... and TA-DA!

Nic - you're asking ME? Me who goes to London every September and packs sweaters cos its cold at home, only to discover when I get there its at least two degrees warmer and I get to experience enough hot flushes to make me believe that menopause has arrived early??? Pack everything I say...
