I can't bear it anymore! I'm sick of being sweaty and sticky and grumpy! How do any of you in permanently hot countries cope?! <melts>

I love the heat, hotter the better for me.

Rummikub Fri 12-Jul-13 23:04:06

I can't bear it either. And not being able to sleep because of the heat. I'm having to eat 4 or 5 ice lollies a day to help me cope! I guess they have air con in hot countries? How much longer is this heat supposed to last??

AmyFarrahFowlerCooper Fri 12-Jul-13 23:09:33

Another week at least I think <cries>

raisah Fri 12-Jul-13 23:11:08

Silly isn't it? We all moaned about the snow & the ever lasting winter and now summer has finally arrived we are complaining it is too hot! There's no satisfying some people!

Rummikub Fri 12-Jul-13 23:16:09

Another week??! I've only bought 42 ice lollies, they'll never see me through! I much prefer snow and cold, I know how to dress for that and I can turn up my heating, sit by the fire, have 2 hot water bottles. Bliss. This heat I can't cope with!

AmyFarrahFowlerCooper Fri 12-Jul-13 23:17:38

I like it middling. Not too hot, no snow. No rain too please. Then I'll be happy grin and 42 LOLLIES? I've only got three magnums!

Rummikub Fri 12-Jul-13 23:17:39

By the amy did you enjoy season finale of Big Bang? I love Amy farrah fowler!

EagleRiderDirk Fri 12-Jul-13 23:19:04

Its not the heat for me.

oh the humidity

Rummikub Fri 12-Jul-13 23:19:37

Not keen on rain either. I think autumn is my favourite season. Yes 42 lollies. I stocked up in tesco today. I did get some looks, but they're mine all mine!

Stop moaning, otherwise the sun will punish your ungrateful attitude and we will be back to numb fingers and toes before we know it.

AmyFarrahFowlerCooper Fri 12-Jul-13 23:32:07

I did I did! I love Amy. She's my fave shortly followed by Sheldon grin yum yum what lollies did you get? I wish I'd got some fruit ice ones instead of all magnums sad

AmyFarrahFowlerCooper Fri 12-Jul-13 23:32:35

Yes please punish me sun!

Don't need to read the thread. Yes, YABU. It is not 'heat' in comparison with many places. It is beautiful weather which we get far too little of. Quit moaning (also light hearted)

cardibach Fri 12-Jul-13 23:37:16

Also, ice lollies will not make you cool. Look at the science. You don't know how to behave in the heat, that's your problem, not the warm weather.

I don't like the heat either. I get sunstroke easily and so does DD so we have to be careful about exposure.

passmetheprozac Fri 12-Jul-13 23:40:43

I can't bear it, I am thankful for air conditioning at work and for my fan at home.

Give me snow over this any day smile

Some people can't handle the heat, and I for one will bitch and moan about it, because I am free to do so.

SupermansBigRedPants Fri 12-Jul-13 23:40:49

Can't stand it in normal circumstances never mind heavily pregnant sad I love autumn and winter months they are brilliant. I still over heat in winter but I am unnaturally sweaty blush one layer too many and I'm pouring! This summer i want to actually rip my skin off - if bare bones was an option my god I'd be the first in line grin

SupermansBigRedPants Fri 12-Jul-13 23:43:36

Anyone who thinks Scotland is cold and dreary can come swelter in my 23º bedroom with the windows open and the fan on <grumble> <sweat>

This weather is so vanquish angry

Rummikub Fri 12-Jul-13 23:45:11

cardi yes your right. Teach me please! Lollies are a quick fix then I'm too hot again. Hence the 4th or 5th in a day. amy I got mainly fruit ones, cola lollies and fabs. Sheldon is another favourite. Must admit Howard's growing on me latelyblush.

Spermysextowel Fri 12-Jul-13 23:45:33

I suggest browsing the chiller cabinets at Painsburys. Don't have to but anything but it's oh so cold. For the heavily pregnant I recommend taking a folding chair & some reading material.

Spermysextowel Fri 12-Jul-13 23:46:28

buy anything

apostropheuse Fri 12-Jul-13 23:49:37


Scotland here too and I'm fair wabbit wae the heat.

Far too warm in the bedroom here, fan on, windows opened, legs spread on the bed to allow the fan to cool every inch of me. Not a pretty sight I can assure you. Add to that fact that I did some facial hair removal earlier and now have a face like a well skelped arse...well you get the picture!

SupermansBigRedPants Fri 12-Jul-13 23:52:55

Christ aostrapheuse are you me?! Minus the hair removal much to df's irritation, I get hairy in pregnancy but it goes once the baby has arrived so I'm not touching it just yet grin
