It is way, way, WAY too hot in my bedroom. I've no idea why but it seems 10 degrees hotter than anywhere else in the house. The central heating is most definetly switched off and I have windows open. Although that's doing no good because there is no bloody breeze.

I'm MELTING!!!!

Luckily I have a stash of choc ices in the fridge but I've run out of all liquids apart from a few drops of fresh orange and then it's onto tap water :(

Please can we have cool nights? Or at least a breeze to cool my room down. PLEASE for the LOVe of ME!!!!!???

i so sympathise! our house is also an oven and i have a 13.5 tog duvet - marshmello bed is getting slightly hectic, if you have a flannel, wet it with cold water and wrap around your wrists, your wrists and ankles have points where theres a lot of blood flow so its quickers to cool the body down.

and put your hair in a bun ;)

Hair is already tied back tonight :p

Might do the wet flannel trick when I actually go to bed. At the moment I'm still typing away furiously taking advantage of being on a bit of a roll. Unfortunately I also have a worsening headache developing, mainly thanks to a combination of the heat and also (still) the aftershock of overdoing it last night - the effects of which really haven't left me all day!!!

It's days like these when I really realise I'm not in my twenties anymore let alone my teens!!! :p

.....and it's back to the day job tomorrow (although have got B-Movie joy tomorrow night!!! Yippee!!!!)

I always try cold baths and sticking wet facecloths in the freezer for later melting laid across my head/belly/lower back. Does wonders for heat stroke, to which I am terribly prone (I start showing symptoms at 20 C)

"I've no idea why but it seems 10 degrees hotter than anywhere else in the house."

Heat rises?

I suggest plenty of alcohol. If you have enough alcohol in you it'll speed up evaporation which'll cool you off faster. Plus, if you're drunk you won't notice you're hot.

PS Never take health advice from me ;-)

I'm only one floor up so I don't think the heat rising thing should have too much effect. Apartf rom anything else the landing is fairly cool - I just can't have my door open atm as everyone else is in bed and I want to a) play music whilst I work and b) don't want the cats invading my room atm! :p

As for the alochol suggestion - after last night I really don't want to have another drink of alcohol for a while. This will presumably change tomorrow night however as I'm going clubbing.

Oh, just remembered, do you use Lightning Source in Milton Keynes for the books you send us? Just wanted to make sure it was the same company as a few other people I know are now using it and I've been invited up for a 'Training Day' to see how their operations and web resources work.

Yes indeedy! The quality of the UK LSI books is much, much better than the US ones, FWIW. You can tell 'em I said so.
