Too warm and too achy

For the first time in a long time I actually found myself in a situation where I was too wnarm to sleep. This never happens me. I have poor circulation and I am always, always, always, cold.

I crave heat constantly, and when we do actually get some sun in the UK and the rest of the population seems to go into meltdown and starts complaining that it’s too hot, my mood gets a massive boost. It’s a rare day that I feel too warm, so when I do, it must be warm.

Struggling in the heat

This year has been a strange one for me. Usually when it’s warm I find it a lot easier to do things than when it’s cold. I usually ache less too, which is also nice.

However, lately I’ve been noticing that things are quite different. Take the day I’m writing this post for example (yesterday for you guys). It’s boiling. I’m never one to say it’s too hot, but today I think it pretty much is. I went for a really quick walk and I really struggled with it because I was so warm. It took a lot more energy out of me that a journey of that length would usually have done, and I’ve noticed it more and more this year, even though I don’t think it’s been any hotter than last year. I was fine then. In fact, I loved the heat last year.

Do any of you struggle with the heat? How do you cope?

The simple joys of summer

As you’ve probably guessed by now, I love the summer. The light nights, the walks with friends and the ocassional BBQ, I enjoy it all. More than anything though, I look forward to the warmth.

I’ve spoken before of how much harder I find it hard to move in the cold, and how my circulation (especially my feet) can get quite badly effected. They’re often black or grey and it’s not very pleasent as I quite often get pins and needles. So, whatever the wheather you’ll usually find me in thick socks. Well, dear readers I just wanted to write a quick post to share with you one of my most simple, but greatest joys of the season.

The other night I woke up in the middle of the night feeling far too hot, only to find that when I removed my socks (yes I keep them on for bed) my feet were a wonderful shade of pink!

Even my boyfriend was amazed.

They¬† stayed that way while I had a wonder around to cool off a bit, which never normally happens! It wore off in the morning though, but, hey, I’ll take what I can get.
