I'm sitting inside in my relatively cool house, the kids are too and are finishing watching a film. Got this nagging guilt feeling we should be outside because it's such fine weather. But it's too hot! We've been out this morning briefly. I can almost hear my mum's voice saying we should be out making the most of it! AIBU?

you can always go out a bit later when hopefully it's cooled down a bit, and you have been outside

Do you have a garden? Can you set up a paddling pool or sprinkler and flop in the shade?

Bollocks to that. Im inside, out of the sun too!

Sorry, no yanbu to be inside, I am too!

I'm inside too - 12 week old DD is napping infront of the fan in just a nappy.

JackBauersBag Wed 24-Aug-16 14:56:49

I don't like the sun. So yanbu, 7 month old DD is asleep on the sofa.

This is the most stressful part of summer for me - the feeling that if you're not outside every second there is sunshine you are wasting the nice weather! I did go out this morning and to be honest it was far too hot, I was constantly worrying about suncream for me and dd , I had to keep making sure ds was drinking plenty and then we both had to have a shower when we got home because we were so sweaty!

I'm now sitting inside and dd is asleep - bliss!

I don't think you should worry about it at all you could always go out early evening when it's cooler .

I am 39 weeks pregnant though and quite grumpy about the weather right now grin

Go out after five pm and be smug in the sun's not so lethal rays.

I am inside too - flopped on the sofa while one dd sleeps and the other one plays. So tempted to nod off but am trying to maintain some kind of feeling of being in charge...

YANBU. I can't stand summer.

Heat and sun in for holidays abroad. It's got no business being this hot in the UK.

Roll on winter.

Oops just dd I don't have a ds too (yet!)

foxessocks Wed 24-Aug-16 14:58:47

Everyone knows you're supposed to stay out of the sun from 11 until 3 anyway!

DerelictMyBalls Wed 24-Aug-16 14:58:53

YANBU! It's horribly muggy. Rain is forecast for the SE tonight so hopefully tomorrow will still be sunny but the air will be clearer.

My feelings exactly. I'm going to Greece tomorrow and I'm hoping for the exact same weather I'm whingeing about today! smile

Having just been almost fried alive in a park for over an hour felt like five hours I can say this is the easiest AIBU I've ever answered - NO! YANBU AT ALL

Loulou2kent Wed 24-Aug-16 15:02:45

Have just got back after spending the morning loading my car for the tip & then taking it there & emptying it all out into the correct containers. UANBU. It's waaaay too hot! I'm going to jump in a cool shower, close the curtains & lay on the sofa! I'm hoping DS 2 has the same idea!

myownprivateidaho Wed 24-Aug-16 15:06:44

YANBU really but I love the sunshine and really resent having to be inside on a lovely day like this so can't help feeling a bit irrationally annoyed when people could be making the most of it but choose not to.

I would love to be one of those people who are energised, not drained by hot weather.

But since I live in the UK, I think it's more convenient if I love the cold! grin

Went out for a walk at 9am, was home after 45mins. Bollocks to this heat. On plus side, dd had an extra long nap as the heat exhausts her!

Urgh, I've just walked 3.5 miles in the blazing sun pushing a toddler in his trike to go to the pub beer garden for lunch (car out of action!). 2 hours sat in beer garden cradling a refill Diet Pepsi as by that point felt too hot to eat. Managed to get a lift home and I'm just lying on the couch in the cool house trying to build up the energy to meet friends on the park at 4...

I am in doors I have stuff to do on a game I play. Day time I can get it done before people come on

Wellywife Wed 24-Aug-16 15:13:44

YANBU. I'm inside too, as is DD. But all the washing is out!

foxessocks Wed 24-Aug-16 15:15:45

Oh I forgot I had washing to hang out thanks!

Swishtails Wed 24-Aug-16 15:16:20

DS is asleep and I'm sat on my arse in front of the telly with a brew.

Absolutely no desire to be out in this heat. Bring on autumn immediately

sportinguista Wed 24-Aug-16 15:17:32

We've been a bit out in the garden, but I have to be inside because I was working this morning. I have to work this evening too. I have the door open so DS wanders in and out as well as the cat. I may sit and have wine as I work which makes it pleasant. I will also wander out from time to time to take the air...
