We’re having a Heatwave

So Great Britain is in the middle of a heatwave!

Glorious isn’t it?

I can’t remember the last time we had such fabulous, prolonged good weather.

Normally we get the odd few hot days then it’s back to rain or grey skies! Our Summer seems to have been around May time the past few years, then the summer holidays are dire. You can’t plan anything or go to the seaside because you’ll freeze to death!

Hence, I’m enjoying our summer while it lasts and I’m praying it stays till the end of July and into August as we’re off to a couple of festivals! It doesn’t even have to stay THIS hot… as long as it’s reasonably warm and NO rain! We don’t do rain thank you very much!

Thing is though, I haven’t got that many Summer clothes to wear when the weather is like this! We didn’t go away last year so I didn’t buy anything new! This year we’re hoping to get a last minute bargain in late August so I’d better start shopping before all the Autumn stuff arrives! Have you noticed that all the shops seem to stop renewing their Summer stock whilst it’s still Summer?! Annoying! So if you leave holiday shopping to the last minute you’ll find it near impossible to get anything!

I’m going to a wedding too in late September so I’ve been looking at dresses from Esprit, a company who I think do a great mix of casual, every day wear and classier type clothes.

How gorgeous is this halter neck dress……

This dress could easily be dressed up or down and looks as though you’d stay lovely and cool in it… nice a flowy and not too tight! Absolutely perfect for this heat!

Talking of heat, one thing I would absolutely love to have in the garden when a heatwave is upon us is  hot tub! Even in the Winter, in the right enclosure it could definitely still be used, especially if you have kids!

We’ve actually been pricing some up and some are rather reasonable! This one here is from the hot tub barn and is the perfect size. They’re also great for relaxation and winding down after a busy or stressful day! Definitely need one of these in my life right now!

I am absolutely loving this heatwave.. everyone has a tan and looks healthy! It’s not doing me many favours in the work department though! Working from home means I just want to be outside in the garden instead of sitting at my desk. But taking the laptop outside isn’t as easy as it sounds… the screen isn’t easy to see, even in the shade and for me to be accessible to the WIFI I have to sit in a certain corner of the garden, which isn’t the most comfortable!

Oh well, there are worse problems to have I suppose!

Hope you are enjoying the weather too…. long may it continue!
