Senoufou Tips from Texas to the UK for beating the heat (142* d) RE: Tips from Texas to the UK for beating the heat 19 Jul 22


I've just read an email from my sister up in Scotland. She hates hot weather (unlike me) and every Monday she gives online bridge lessons and plays tournament bridge using a webcam (is that the word?). Well, she told me she's found a good way to keep cool while doing this, seated at her Kitchen table ; she thoroughly wetted a large pair of her cotton knickers under the tap and put them on her head! I shook with laughter when I read that - I wonder what all the other bridge fans thought when they saw her appear on their screens with knickers on her head!
My poor window cleaners are due to arrive today, but if they've any sense they'll wait a few days until it's cooler. But I've got the icy-cold cans of Diet Coke ready for them if they do show up.
Can you believe that I always sleep under a 15 Tog goosedown duvet, even in this hot weather? I reckon it keeps the heat OUT, and I sleep like a log. You can tell that both my sister and myself are rather ... er... eccentric! It must be because we're half-Irish!
