I rarely hate. It's such a strong word. But, for the essence of sustained heat levels of 27C+ (for someone who's not used to seeing these temperatures daily or year in year out), I hate heat. Here's a basic understanding why. Ok, there are a fair few who are enjoying sunning themselves, getting burnt/tanned, going to the seaside, having to be at work (and this is probably the best bit for me to not be in my previous job, in a hotel kitchen). But I really do despise the heat especially in the current levels of it. I remember what 2006 was like, and I was working in a cafe at that time, walking a 20 min journey home I got burnt myself. Fast forward to today - I actually thought "Let's see how I go out and about in the heat, a day after a venesection". More fool me. Stomach cramps, and rumbling, telling me I was hungry/thirsty and bloated at the same time, feeling tired (having coffee didn't do a lot to ease it, as no sooner as the effect had taken hold, I was drained from the sustained heat), and battling against passing out. Yet, most days I've tucked myself away indoors, in my room, and not been this bad. Maybe it was something to do with the venesection. Or the fact I was out for a prolonged length of time in the heat. Either way, I know i'll minimise external activities to what's necessary (Signing on, interviews, hospital appointments), until the weather eases. I'll be glad of temperatures under 20C during the day when they arrive. Hopefully with rain.
