Is it hot in here?

We’ve had the hottest day of the year so far here in the UK at around 26 Celsius where I am. For here that’s quite on the warm side! 😰

I’ve had a lovely day out in the countryside with my boyfriend, visiting a village we both love and looking in second-hand book shop he took me to last year on my birthday.

I love that little shop. Book stores are one of my happy places and in this tiny little store in such a beautiful village I was like a kid in a sweet shop! πŸ˜‚

Me being the resident “I don’t tan I just burn” person, I had to retreat to the shade as much as I could πŸ˜‚Dark hair and pale skin, I don’t fare well in the heat!

That and I’m more prone to heat stroke than the average bear after getting a bad case of it a few years back. Because of that admittedly hot weather makes me feel a little anxious, but I’m working on it.

I remember the summer a few years back where it was 15 degrees and I was in heaven! πŸ˜‚

Me and Kinky Bestie both joke that it’s because of our mutual Scottish heritage (both being descendents of families in the Highlands) that we don’t fare in hot weather well πŸ˜‚ For us (my clan was known for jet black hair, so soaking up heat like a sponge there!) the cooler the better! πŸ˜‚

No word of a lie, while many head to very hot countries on holiday during summer, I was looking at Iceland. Still wanting to go, temperature aside, it sure is a beautiful country! 😍

Thankfully it’s going to cool back down, phew! And if not, well I’ll relocate to the Highlands for a bit πŸ˜‚

Scotland being like a second home to me, I certainly would have no complaints πŸ˜‚

All my love,

  1. You would not do well in Virginia. When the first colonists arrived in Jamestown in May 1607, they very quickly encountered some most un-British heat and humidity. That’s why the next colony they “planted” was in The North, what they called New England, due,in part, to the climatic similarity. 25Β° Celsius was warmer than Virginia today,
