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…
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
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
