I Hate It Hate It!

I know that I shouldn’t, that I should be grateful for such lovely weather but I hate it. I hate it so much!

I love to look at the sun, but that is where it stops. Baba and I are both strawberry blondes, with really fair skin and I am full of freckles. Which I am sure Baba will be too, he just has not yet got them. But because of our skin I am constantly stressed about him wearing suncream, and a sun hat. The whole of my family and Mr L’s family laugh at me but I am so concerned about him getting burnt that I can’t help it.

Today I went out with a friend of mine, and she was talking about taking her child to the beach when it is really hot and that thought fills me with dread! I just couldn’t cope with everything that I would have to take and the amount of sun cream that I would have to keep applying. I just can’t bring myself to do it. It stresses me out so much that I only let Baba out after the sun has started to move away from our garden as it is such a sun trap otherwise! But then I feel guilty for not letting him out to play, but I worry – maybe too much.

The other thing that I hate about this weather is hay fever, I thought I had got away with it this year. As I usually get it early on and didn’t seem to have it. Was I wrong about that! It has come back with a vengeance. It is really depressing. I want to do things, but my nose is constantly running, my eyes are streaming and I just cough and sneeze all day. I don’t look my best and just feel rubbish all the time. So nothing gets done, I don’t walk the dog as much as I should the garden doesn’t get done and I feel rubbish all the time.

It just isn’t fair, I want to be the parent that has no worries, and her child is running free in the garden whatever the weather and they are always having fun. But I can’t there is always too much to worry about, how much cream he has on, tissues for me etc. It makes me feel bad and I hate it.

Roll on the autumn, now that is a season that I love with a passion!

    I know what you mean , i let the older kids go play in the field, but Jaboo stays with me , tomorrow we will be on the field or down the park by 9am so we can have a good time before it gets busy and hot. I think that we will come home for a dining room floor picnic and a sleep.Just an idea have you thought of a pop up 2 man tent for the garden< we have a large one that jaboo has up in the house for adventures, easly put away and a sandpit would fit inside safe playing

      I hadn’t actually thought of one of them maybe that is the thing to get. I know that we have to do something as he just wants to be outside and I am so worried about it that he doesn’t get out there. Not good! I will look into it, thanks for that idea xx

    Its good that you worry. Too many people just don’t give a shit. Or just do understand the damage done. I used to love this weather, now, like you, I cant stand it. Sigh.
