We all know that the past few weeks the heat in the UK has been ridiculous with highs of 21 degrees. I myself know that when it comes to the heat it’s a big no from me I’m afraid, I would much rather cuddle up on the sofa with my boy and a hot chocolate watching soaps/movies or if Jake has it his way then it’s blaze and the monster machines! (Rolls eyes) with a duvet over us all snuggled! Who am I kidding that only happens in movies… I will be under the duvet Jake will be playing with his toys or throwing them around the room!. As they say it’s a lot quicker to warm up than it is to cool down and that is why winter is my favourite time of year.
Don’t get me wrong the sun does put me in a happy mood but not so much when the heat comes with it too, I can get very snappy with people very quickly if I am too hot. But when I suffer from the heat I tend to stay inside or I get outside take Jake to the park for half hour and think why the hell did I do it? I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks this too? Now as I’m typing this saying that when the sun is out I would rather stay indoors I must seem like a complete bore but I’m just being honest with what I would do with my day, I am not one for the beach although if it was for Jake for an hour or so I would do it for him.
Now as a mum especially I find the heat even worse because the hay fever is out of control and so is your child so whilst your sneezing your way through hell you’re trying to either discipline your child or try and find your child’s favourite toy in your bag.
My favourite one is where you’re wanting to get a nice brown tan but if you’re a pale girl like me then you just burn red, hurt & ache and end up looking like ross from friends. Example⬇️
(If you don’t know who that is the I suggest you look it up as it will give you a giggle!) whilst you’re running around after your toddler all day, when they cuddle you and pat you on your back etc.
Everything is sticky! even if you get in the shower and an hour later you’re sticky again! You look a mess no matter how much you try to salvage your makeup with a bit of powder, Nope think again in just 2 minutes you will look like someone has tipped a bowl of water over your face and don’t get me started on the hair! remember the shower that you took that hour ago and your hair dried well, that’s now greasy from all the sweat! Again why people love summer I do not know!.
Now I know not everyone will have experienced this but I’m sure 95% of people must have! Leather seats are your worse enemy! They’re mine that’s for sure and I don’t even own a car! I’m always in the car with my mum as I rely on her so if its not the burns from the sun then it’s the burns from the seats & seat belts!
You thought having a child and not sleeping? well what about having to try sleep in hot conditions! I HATE it! In the UK we’re not privileged enough to have air con and I’m too poor to buy a fan so having the window open all day & night is my only option which many of you would say well it’s not too bad at least it lets a bit of breeze in… What breeze? I don’t have any breeze coming through so I’m laying there in my pool of sweat trying to breath and trying to sleep whilst my son is fast asleep snoring his head off!
I ran a poll on my instagram… which stated how many of your were winter lovers or summer lovers and there are far too many summer lovers! Whilst 44% loves winter & hot chocolates, 56% prefers summer & cocktails!.
