OH MY GOD, IT’S TOO HOT! I don’t like it. I don’t like doing three school runs in this heat. I don’t like sweat – back sweat, under boob sweat, sweat of the nether regions (it’s not just me, is it?!), or even *shudder* other people’s sweat! Ugh. I don’t like sun cream. Sticky, greasy sun cream on my clammy, hot children. I don’t like the extra washing. I don’t like flies coming in through my open windows. I don’t like getting tangled in my bedding and thrashing about trying to sleep and failing. I don’t like eejits driving like utter plonkers with their soft tops down, their engines revving, and their chav music blaring. I don’t like drippy, sticky, melty ice lollies in the hands of my youngest child. I don’t like the blisters from that pair of sandals that were mega comfy last year but this year seem to be made from barbed wire. I don’t like the burning thigh chaffage I get if I wear a dress. I don’t like all the grass and dead things floating in the padding pool.
I DON’T LIKE IT.
And here’s what I ate last week when my house wasn’t a furnace…
MONDAY: slow cooker brisket with rich, chunky veg gravy, sweet potato chips, and horseradish
TUESDAY: spicy slow cooker red lentil, sweet potato and chickpea stew with couscous
WEDNESDAY: homemade sweet and sour pork tenderloin with rice
THURSDAY: balsamic and herb glazed pork loin steaks in buns, with salad and coleslaw
SATURDAY: bacon, eggs, baked beans, and proper chips from the chippy!
SUNDAY: Father’s Day roast lamb at my Mum’s house
