Sleeping Tips

  1. Sleep on your side, it allows more heat to escape
  2. Use a fan in the bedroom
  3. Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol but drink water
  4. Close your curtains
  5. If you leave windows open, use an insect net
  6. Cotton sheets absorb sweat
  7. Fill a hot water bottle with cold water
  8. Wear loose fitting/cotton night clothes
  9. Keep a damp flannel or a water spray handy
  10. Avoid foam mattresses

I have just checked my thermostat and it doesn't seem to be infested with exotic pets...what next?

Who needs nightclothes though? Au naturelle is best.

Night shift must be really dull.

I've parked my tank under a tree - ill be wiping bird poo off it for a while but at least it will be cool.

No wonder it's so hot in my house. Just checked the thermostat and a bloody lizard had turned it up to the maximum! Cheeky bugger.

Id like to complain about the final point.

Couldnt turn the hose off quick enough. Poor thing.

I think the advice on water is probably open to the caveats that hold for taking water in when running - it's not the same for everyone. If I drank a cup of water every 15 minutes I'd need a season ticket for the bogs!

What size glass?  I need volume.  Preferably around the 13% mark.

And sleeping is for wimps.  This time of year is made for hot, sticky, lazy, prolonged, windows wide open, rumpy pumpy.

Hot weather rumpy pumpy - bleah, much nicer for warming you up in the winter

See, I live in Scotland, so winter 'action' usually consists of jammies off, rumble under the heaviest duvet in the world, topped by a series of heavy blankets, get hot and sweaty then get the jammies back on as quick as humanly possible before the sweat freezes.

At least in a summer like this you're already sweaty and won't catch your death from perspiration.

Am thinking neighbours prefer the winter action?

Another benefit of living in the middle of nowhere...

I agree but would you keep the noise down I can't hear myself think!

Karen what are your tips for "rumpy pumpy" during this hot spell?
