Lucy’s List – July (week 4)

URGH! IT’S TOOOOOOO HOT! It’s so hot. Why is it so hot? And I’m too hot! HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT.

It’s fair to say I don’t cope well with hot weather. Particularly humid heat. Sticky, sweaty, icky yuck. I don’t like it. I feel like I just need to sit very very still until it stops. Last week husband came through the door after a hard day’s work and was greeted by me screaming “DONT TOUCH ME!” in his face like a sweaty loon. And don’t even get me started on what the humidity does to my hair…


Nuff said.

I’m a winter baby. Born a week before Christmas. All the good stuff happens in winter. Summer is just too hot! I’m definitely more Elsa than Olaf!

And the worst thing? I don’t enjoy cooking when it’s too hot. And crocheting any large woolly items is out of the question. All my favourite things are less enjoyable in summer. So there. I’m sulking. And here’s my meal plan:

MONDAY: oriental salmon and rice

TUESDAY: beef and green bean curry, chapatis, popadoms and minty yoghurty dip


THURSDAY: steak, stuffed mushrooms and posh peas

FRIDAY: bean burgers and sweet potato chips

SATURDAY: shepherds’ pie puffs with salad

SUNDAY: courgette fritters with bacon and mushrooms

      It’s been much cooler the last couple of days. Relief!
