Oh, it’s great being British, isn’t it? We moan for months on end about the rain and wind and grey skies and how we wish summer would get a hurry on. Then someone mentions the word ‘heatwave’, we all bulk buy sunscreen and barbecue food, only for the hot weather to arrive – and we can’t deal.
As temperatures soared this weekend, the nation did what it does best: took off all its clothes, acquired some dodgy tan lines, started getting just a little too warm now, actually – then tweeted the world about it.
(And the world said: “call this a heatwave!?”)
Temperatures top 30°C and we can’t cope
Hands up who got any sleep last night
And on ‘Freedom Day’ eve, too
We’re hot. So very hot
Possibly even *too* hot
Ok, so it’s not hot *everywhere*
Some people are in excellent spirits
While for others, the struggle is real
Just don’t forget your suncream
And be careful what you wish for
