Not sure but I think it is the weather being unreasonable.

I am laying naked. On top of my bed. Quilts has been banished to the floor.
Window is on vent I hate being in a bungalow

My head is pounding from increased atmospheric pressure.

I'm hot. I'm tired. I'm grumpy.
I can't sleep.

Put a bottle of drink from the fridge under your knees.

Same!!! And I've just looked at the weather for my area (north Manchester) and it's approx 19 degrees ATM - Then I noticed the temp for tomorrow... 30 degrees!!!! 😳
Being ginger, that means I'm stuck inside all day!

Lmao my 15 year old DD just came down and put her pillow in the chest freezer for 5 mins bcoz she's too hot as well 😂

Get a Muslin, pillow case, flannel or whatever and rinse with cold water. Position strategically... Definitely helps.

Lying here in bed, I've just heard 2 long sprays, followed by a pungent smell of DS16s deodorant, emanating from his room.
I know he was spraying the soles of his feet. It just amused me. grin

I spent the evening in a cold bath!

I should start a thread, AIBU to replace my sofa with a giant paddling pool and just live in it for the rest of the summer.

Yip.... Almost 40 weeks pregnant sad

I've just been wandering round the garden with the cat. Heat is oppressive in our house even with windows open.

It's not gone below 27 degrees in our room or in my 8 month old daughter's room all night. It's so miserable.

I've got to be up at 7am so in less than four and a half hours... My mum is sorting her timetable for uni so I said I'll go with her, it may also be to do with the fact that I have ten very overdue library books to hand back/possibly renew.

I'm not tired, despite walking over 6 miles to catch Pokemon! I'm also not hungry at all... But very thirsty.

I really hate this weather sad

Love this weather but cannot sleep.

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 02:47:47

My cat is having a fight

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 02:48:19

Loud meowing stand it a baby next door? Deafness is a bugger

notamummy10 Tue 19-Jul-16 02:50:13

I'm wondering whether it's worth trying to sleep or to give up and watch a movie on Netflix...

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 02:50:30

Ph it's definitely the baby next door. Sounds like she is unwell

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 02:51:02

If I put tv on i might disturb my neighbours

Gatekeeper Tue 19-Jul-16 02:51:59

Ours is having a standoff outside now as well. What a bloody racket grin

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 02:53:36

The baby has been crying fir ages Is that normal? Wow really high pitched

SoleBizzz Tue 19-Jul-16 03:07:43

All quiet now. DS never cried really. I feel as if I'm not really a proper Mom sometimes. As I don't know stuff

KayTee87 Tue 19-Jul-16 03:17:38

Poor things probably too hot as well sad

I feel like crying just now to be fair....

Ordered fans for all 5 of our bedrooms tonight as no one could sleep it's that hot.

Feel awful for my daughter though as her room is at the back of the house and gets the most sun and heat on it all day long in the summer, so is unbearably hot from the minute the sun comes up until about eleven pm when it starts cooling down but doesn't get to a comfortable temperature until about 2. She's off to her boyfriends tomorrow morning as the have ceiling fans in all rooms and he also has a desk fan that she stays will be next to her all day and night. Says she won't be coming home until the fan for her room arrives. grin Bless her.

I find if I can get my hands and feet cold it help lots. I run my wrists and feet under a cold tap until they are really cold. I don't bother drying them.

Or a cold shower, oat dry and a cold fan blowing over you in bed.

It's really really hot where I am now (Vegas) but thank goodness for air con here. Back horn we are just not geared up for hot (or particularly cold) weather.
