It has been unbearably hot today. I know that many countries across the world have to deal with these conditions but at least they prepare for them by installing air conditioning in their offices, taking siestas and just generally adapting to it. Us Brits are used to shit, muggy and damp weather all year round. Besides which, we love to moan about the climate and this heat wave is a perfect excuse to do so!

Anyway I have found the best way to combat this extreme heat…

Firstly dig a hole about 20 feet deep, get inside and bury yourself. There are problems with this method though, in that it is hard work (especially in the heat) and you will probably die.

The second solution is just to walk around in your underwear, or better still, nude. Like the first idea, this one poses problems also. You are at risk of being arrested and your boss, friends and granny may not take kindly to it.

I decided against both of the above ideas and have just been drinking loads of water and I mean loads. I have been drinking water like Mr. White drinks alcohol. I must have visited both the water dispenser and toilet at work twenty times throughout the day. I actually feel good for it too. A bit like a well hydrated camel who has just filled his hump.

As well as the water I have also been on the fruit smoothies. I have given up on the Innocent brand as they’re simply too expensive, besides which I can’t find the Strawberry & Banana flavour anywhere! I am now drinking Sainsbury’s own brand. Dan recommended these to me as they are just as nutritious as the Innocent ones and at less than half the price, meaning you can have twice as much!

Ice lollies help a lot too. On the way home from work I bought a box of Mini Milks. I haven’t had these since I was about four years old. They’re just as yummy as I remembered them. The white flavour is especially good. I am (quickly) working my way through the whole box. Probably not as good for you as the water and smoothies are, but they are so nice. No wonder all kids are obese nowadays with these to eat.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
