I can’t put it any other way other than: blimey, it’s hot. I suppose I could say Scorchio, but that’s an old Brit TV gag 🙂 Mind you, there’s always Google and YouTube.
I tell you what, I was glad I was at work this week… at least some of it has air con! I don’t mind a bit of sun, but regular days of 30C (Ed: not the bra size) just do me in and I bet the kids wouldn’t have liked being couped up in the car nor being daubed with sunscreen until they looked like they’d been rolled in evaporating goose fat.
I suppose for those of you from hotter places will be scoffing at my inability to take temps beyond 28c. Dammit, Jim, I’m a Englishman, not a jungle explorer! 😉 If it’s much warmer were you are, please let me know. It may even give me some perspective!
The office has been hot and many folks – well, gents to be precise – have forsaken the shirt and tie. Shorts are now on the cards and I’ve given up on long trousers until the temperature drops to a more typical British mid 20s.
Strappy vests seem to be the order of the day for the ladies at work. While part of me – the trans part I guess – has a slight twinge of jealousy over women’s seemingly endlessly more varied wardrobe. V cute shorts and gladiators for one, but not with my hairy pins. 😉 At the same time, I’d kinda glad I don’t have to worry about what the fashion mags pump out at this time of year. Bikini diets, fan tans, the war on body hair, etc.
I’ve read in a few places that if Climate Change was going to occur, we can look forward – not quite the words I’d have used – to seeing British summers very much like the shake and bake of 2003. While I like the blue skies, I’m not keen on the temperatures. That said, part of me wonders how the work clothing would adapt for men. I notice that many delivery drivers and postmen / postladies….
actually, that sounds a bit TS doesn’t it? 😛
… now wear shorts. Will we see the equivalent of City Shorts for men? Mind you, a few companies have been trying hard to flog tights for men, so as markets shrink, I suppose it’s only natural.
Here’s to a cooler weekend!
