Hot! Hot!

Hello all and welcome! Another heatwave has sprung up in England. In my northern part I am enjoying frequent 27 Celsius days which is great. Today at 29c and I’m hoping we get up to 35c again.

Let’s all just sit back and enjoy the heat and some nice drinks with ice.

Do you swim?

One of the best things you could do. Going to the beach sounds great but don’t take my word for it. Everyone has different tastes. I could tolerate the hot sand and such for an hour at max in this weather. On holiday abroad though it is usually more bearable. (mmmm, that can’t be right).

Recent News ! *

There is much going on in the world at the moment. We have the on going conflict with Ukraine and Russia. We have the refugee crisis and not just from the war, it is another issues that is long standing.

Everyone seems to have forgotten about the Afghanistan refugees and the fact the country has been taken over by terrorists. They haven’t talked about this in the news at all. They have moved their focus onto two things:

  1. War in Ukraine
  2. Fuel prices
  3. Energy costs
  4. Cost of living
  5. The great reset / the new world

No. 5 doesn’t make me a conspiracy theorist. The Great Reset is a part of the plan drawn up by the World Economic Forum – https://www.weforum.org/great-reset

I don’t think the fuel prices issue will be resolved soon. It fluctuates and has done for years. Cost of living is a joke, it is not really acceptable for supermarkets, and other businesses to maintain such high prices. They do have something called profits. This ties into the energy costs, the companies record record highs for 2 years over the pandemic. Yet they increase bills costs.

When will people wake up and stop paying these bills? Stop paying for bills, stop paying rent or your mortgage, and stop paying for products you need like food. The reason is simple… these companies have stolen the natural worlds resources and it is up to you to reclaim them.

Butchering the Sauna

This is common sense but on such a hot day the outside is the sauna. So… don’t use a sauna. However days like this warrant a day trip to an outdoor spa or something, or a delightful and posh inside spa with pool, whirl pool. You name it.

Personally I enjoy a good swim in a small spa type pool. Or just to kick back and relax.

It is goodbye for now. I am on for my lemon ice tea.

The Imminent Heat Wave (Stay Safe Tips)

Sunday 30 – Monday 35 – Tuesday 35

Those are the forecasts for my area. I believe it was last week that I woke up to suddenly find it was 28c. That was hot yes, but nice and tolerable.

Now… it has not been this hot for many years here and I am not kidding. I don’t remember a recent summer where temperatures have reached 30+, they peaked around 28/29 and that is all. Of course living in the North of England will be the answer, as the south has always been hotter and is also closer to the equator.

My main concern is – living with long term health conditions – is how this will affect me, and I am sure others will be a little concerned too. Excessive heat can be dangerous to people with good healthy, so regardless I will post some tips to stay safe.

Everyone thinks drinking a lot of water is good, which is true but you run the risk with excess sweating of hyponatremia. This is where sodium levels in the blood are low and cause serious issues such as: nausea, vomiting, fatigue, headache or confusion. Along with low blood pressure, fainting and cardiac issues in severe cases. For that reason you need to take hydration liquids that contain sodium as an electrolyte, this can be found in a lot of sports drinks or you may prefer hydration tablets or heck you might just eat sodium containing foods. Salty snacks like salted peanuts or something else can help. Also salt does provide sodium but I don’t recommend adding salt to your drink!

  • Close curtains!
  • Plenty of fluids, avoid alcohol!
  • Don’t sit in a car!
  • Have ice ready in the freezer and cooled liquids
  • Have a fan that works!
  • Avoid the sun between 11am to 3pm
  • Use shade and apply sunscreen if out, wear a large summer light hat
  • Don’t exercise
  • Always carry water/fluids when walking
  • Don’t go into the water – like the sea or pool – alone. Follow regulations, avoid floating in the sun!
  • Take medications and keep a close on them

Summer ’22 ~ How We Cherish the Memories๐Ÿฆ

๐ŸŒž It is finally showing signs of summer here with a peak of around 22 yesterday and now peaking at 27 at my current location (abandoned caravan park). I am so glad to finally be able to enjoy some lovely weather. Sunshine is great for mental health, helps to boost our satisfaction and aid our happiness.

When it gets too hot though that can cause issues but for me, England is not hot enough most of the time so I enjoy every second of heat! I am so fed up of not going to places more often so I have decided to endeavor to go to the lovely beach at some point. ๐Ÿ–

The relaxation of sitting on the beach staring into your own soul

Maybe I could do some surfing? Doubt it since I don’t have a surfboard! Must be cool to do this!๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ

What is the colour of summer? People might associate red and orange with the season as it is hot. However for me blues represent summer! Why? Because blue is in contrast to the heat and allows us to feel that needed refreshing blue, the cool breeze, the blue water of the seas, the clear blue skies and the light coloured summer clothing.๐Ÿ’™ Blue is my favourite colour too.

I think given the hard time everyone has suffered and the self repair and healing we have all been through we deserve to treat this summer with more love and care than any other. Celebrate and do things like it is the last summer on earth. Enjoy the moments, cherish the memories. Go to the beach, eat ice cream, go surfing, go eat out, go watch movies, go walking, go travel, do what you want to do. ๐Ÿ˜

Don’t be afraid of doing it alone either. I see so many WordPress sites with people who share their lives and adventures and they do it alone! That is such an inspiration for me. I know they do things with others too, but still it is that solo element which I find amazing and motivating. I find inspiration from reading about their day trips, the holidays, the family days out, the dreams and the goals and the heartbreaks and setbacks. It makes us human. To live and to experience emotions makes us human beings. ๐Ÿ’‹

Cracked

There is a crack formed above my bedroom door.

I stand in the corner of my bedroom on the clean carpet.

I want to play my guitar, but it is not working.

I could budget for a repair, but it feels miles too far.

There was a crack in the core but nobody cared because it functioned with a smile.

If the crack grows large enough, blood will spill unto the masses and then…

… if the dawn shall be so forgiving we can enter the new kingdom.

Rain onto thy souland beauty gathers her sawdust … where the roses thorns meet the cracks.
