I don't know why, but ever since I was a kid I hate the hot weather; it has always made me feel, well, ugly and inferior!!! I was always a wee bit on the big side (never massive, although I'm a size 16 just now!). Does anyone hate the heat?

I feel awful in the heat. Id live in a igloo anyday.

YANBU! We all hate it, my whole family. We don't go to beach holidays and try to go somewhere cool for Summer hols.

Some folks just aren't cut out for the heat. My poor DS gets covered in heat rash every time the temp goes up and it isn't even that hot.

I burn very easily and being in the sun makes me feel weird so I'm not a fan. I also have a cold which is making it worse!

Stansmith01 Fri 26-May-17 13:12:51

Yanbu! I've always felt the same too

i hear you - am surrounded by people that love it, cant wait to do outdoorsy things and so on,
not me, i am indoors feeling hot and sweaty.
if the summer months are going to be this hot then its going to be horrible for me too. How people can like it is a mystery.

I normally can take it or leave the heat but I'm 6 months pregnant and dealing with a chicken poxy toddler.
So I hate it at the moment!

Yabu it's bliss. I'm rather sweaty and sluggish, but I'm in my own personal heaven.

Don't worry it won't last grin

I love this weather. When I'm on holiday. I hate having to go to work and work in it. The office has been horrendous.

Hate it.

I'm thinking of lurking in the fridge aisles in Sainsbury's just to keep cool. I do need some shopping, I'm not totally weird.

Yes feel lethargic and uncomfortable all the time. And because I am carrying a few extra pounds than I'd like, the heat just exaggerates it somehow :/

If I have absolutely nothing to do I love it. In the shade-I avoid sitting in the sun.

But if I have stuff to do I just get all hot and bothered.

I do struggle to sleep when it's hot.

The80sweregreat Fri 26-May-17 13:20:53

i need air conditioning - if it wasnt really expensive to run i would!

MumIsRunningAMarathon Fri 26-May-17 13:22:04

It's early summer so not really a 'heatwave'

Happens every year

SoupDragon Fri 26-May-17 13:22:51

I love it.

I hate being cold though, winter is miserable for me.

Lottapianos Fri 26-May-17 13:23:04

I love sun but hate the heat. I'm ok today because it's warm but there's a nice cool breeze so no sweaty squelchy weather. I'm in London​ and it's not unknown to get a couple of weeks of 30 plus weather in August and it's hell. You feel disgusting all the time

SoupDragon Fri 26-May-17 13:23:30

It's not early summer, it's still spring so I'd call it a heatwave.

Dianneabbottsmathsteacher Fri 26-May-17 13:25:55

Oh come on you people give us heat lovers a break. How many days in Britain are like this. Give it 2 more days and there will be 'how to keep cool' advice.

I remember 1976 now that was hot.

First Pregnant in 1989 and that was boiling
To be fair my eldest dh hates it. We all love it and abroad while we were revelllimg he would be factor 50 in the shade muttering into his beer.

Don't worry op it wont last.

I'm not a fan - I get headaches, heatrash, grumpyitis, my thighs rub, my eyes water... But the worst bit is definitely commuting to work (90 minutes each way) on packed, sweltering trains.

YANBU heat is rubbish.

araiwa Fri 26-May-17 13:27:29

its dark here

27 degrees and 80% humidity

this morning we had huge storms with an absolute downpour, by lunchtime it was 34 degrees

quit your complaining!!

DuggeeHugs Fri 26-May-17 13:28:01

I hate it too. It's miserable. Nice to look at but rubbish to actually have to do anything in.

Crushsick Fri 26-May-17 13:30:21

I'm not a fan because I'm overweight and extremely self conscious and struggle to find nice clothes that are flattering yet keep me covered.

For the past two days I've suffered in skinny jeans. Last night I slapped on some fake tan on my legs and today wore a light cotton dress with mid length sleeves and my God it's so much more bearable today!
I'm cooler but covered and not feeling self conscious as my legs look not bad actually and my flabby arms are covered but cool.
It's made such actually difference to how I feel in the heat!

Rainydayzandmondays13 Fri 26-May-17 13:30:24

Yanbu I hate it with a passion. Always get miserable, angry and suffocated with the heat

Roll on winter!!

The80sweregreat Fri 26-May-17 13:32:29

why can 't we have nice sunny days, bit of a breeze not too hot, comfortable weather? i love the cold.
hot trains must be horrible to commute in - people sweating everywhere. where is the fun?
i hope it doesnt last.
