Sun sun go away come back another day…

Okay I used to feel very differently about warm weather, when I lived in England, where sunny days are scarce, I loved the sunshine! But now I live somewhere with actually warm summers, I feel like following the English tradition and having a right good moan about the weather.

1. Trying to wear any kind of shirt is just stupid because you’ll be a sweaty mess as soon as you leave the house.

2. Sweat patches. Need I say more?

3. Trying to eat hot food is like filling your body with hot lava.

4. You’ll say ‘it’s too bloody hot’ much to the dismay of everybody, everywhere. 

5. To really show how warm you are you have been known to lie on the floor or stick your face in the fridge just to feel some relief. 

6. The heat makes everyday things seem TERRIBLE. Getting on the bus, normally bad but eatable on sunny days? TERRIBLE!

7. The sun shines into your room making you feel bad for staying inside your cave. 

8. You are literally shit out of luck if you forget to bring sunglasses because you will not be able to see anything without squinting.

9. You always get these weird kind of headaches even though you’ve drank all the water in the world. 

10. Your skin always has this sticky feel to it. 


12. You always underestimate the power of the sun and forget that important factor 30 just for Mother Nature to come and kick your butt with some rather attractive sun burn.

Are you a bit of a grinch when it comes to sunshine? Let me know. 

Love Robyn!

  1. I have to say that I tend to agree with you here, and that is why I like springtime so much. When the weather turns so hot and sticky that all you want to do is stay as still as possible and try to keep dry, sipping iced tea or lemonade all day, I find that almost unbearable. And I get all sorts of dirty looks if I complain about the heat. But I just cannot figure out how anyone could love that sort of weather. Do they keep their houses that warm in the winter time? What’s wrong with a nice, pleasant, sunny day, with moderate temperatures and a cool breeze that makes you feel energized? I’m all for that!

    Very interesting story! 🙂


      1. Send it right over my head. I have to do a book reading on Wednesday, and I am shy in front of people — and the hot weather makes me uncomfortable. A nice, cool day would help a lot.

  2. I live in South Florida. My life is a lit gas grill from April through October. We use molten lava for ice packs around here. We’re going to have to move in a few years because I’m pretty sure the entire state will be on fire by then.
