10 Things That Happen When You're In A Heatwave


1.Eating an ice lolly and it proceeds to make its way down your fingers and onto your lap. In this situation, you either find yourself unapologetically licking it off your hands and elbow or if you have a pet (preferably a dog) they will just do it for you.


2.  No outfit ever feels or looks good anymore. Everything is way too sticky, thick and hot to wear, you contemplate becoming a naturist every day but know you would never do that because of the bod issues. lol.


3. Watching TV is no longer enjoyable, sitting sighing and moving around every few minutes just doesn’t scream ‘comfy’ like it used to.


4. The colder months seemed like a blessing but you can no longer remember how cold you were and you remind people of that everyday.


5. Ice cubes in drinks are useless, they water down your drink rather than make it colder which is heartbreaking considering the price of a good Mojito.


6. We all cherish sleep and when it becomes too hot to sleep, this is where the problems kick in. You have only slept ‘an hour’ whereas your coworker only managed ‘half an hour’ it becomes a sort of sick heatwave/sleep deprived competition.


7. Sweating from places you didn’t know you could sweat from. For instance, as I am sat here I can feel a slow trickle of sweat making its way down my ribcage and I am ok with that.


8.  Being ‘too hot to eat’ but being unable to resist food, despite complaining consistently about how hot you are.


9.  Cold showers are a MUST but they still aren’t very nice and you long for the good days of warm showers and cozy dressing gowns.


10. You begin comparing your heatwave homeland to places like Morocco, India and Africa and even where you mate is currently holidaying. Phrases like *It’s hotter here than it currently is in the Carribean Gaz!* come from everyone’s lips but Brighton beach isn’t exactly the Carribean is it Gaz?
