Plans during UK Heatwave

Ask a Question

With temperatures potentially reaching 33 this week, how do you plan to spend the days?

Any different to normal? Or enjoying it as we canโ€™t really go on holidays?

I love hot weather and when it exceeds 30 it just makes me happy! Iโ€™ve taken two days off work to enjoy the weather and sit in the garden to do nothing -Iโ€™m basically taking my summer holiday over days when the temperature is hot!

One thing I hate is I canโ€™t sleep at night because its hot.. but happy to make the sacrifice given its always raining here!

I will open all the windows to let the heat in. Our house is usually cold indoors unless the central heating on.

We have lots of outdoor jobs to do so the weather being nice is a bonus. Top up the tan while getting things done. The sun makes everybody happy and thatโ€™s what we need at the moment to cheer people up

Agreed - I think the sun does lift up the mood of most people, but hopefully people still remain vigilant!

I'm OK as long as I have access to shade, if needed, and a never ending supply of long drinks with plenty of ice. The paddling pool will be filled (huge rectangular pool from Asda ยฃ15) and 'Club Tropicana' on repeat should help me get lost in the moment. That reminds me - I have to look for those cocktail straws and parasols. ๐Ÿ˜†

Oooo that sounds like fun! I have a tree in our garden which gives us shade, which I think is really useful! Although I love this heat, I can't really sit outside in the sun all the time!

Soaking up the sun. It isnโ€™t hot enough for me unless it hits 30 degree, as Iโ€™d still need a cardigan or light jacket

MsLamboLova12 lol it is. I usually wear thermals, and I was still wearing the thermal tops on Monday. Yesterday, I didnโ€™t think I needed them anymore. Today, I definitely donโ€™t need them, but my cardi is in my bag just in case

MsLamboLova12 I like to stay warm, preferably directly in the sun. The shade can be a touch too chilly for me. Today, it was a bit breezy, but not cold so I didnโ€™t need my cardi in the end. However, I do always have it at hand as I find most shops like to crank up the air con - I absolutely hate air con

Anything above about 24 degrees is too hot for me so I'll be hiding in the house until the shade hits the garden and it cools a bit

Very rare there is such a thing as a heatwave in Scotland, but if we do get any hot weather, canโ€™t sit in our garden thanks to our delightful next door neighbours who smoke weed and blast out dance music with 10 people in the garden ALL DAY and have 8 dogs who wonโ€™t stop barking if there are people anywhere nearby... cant go anywhere because itโ€™s too busy / not allowed... just have to stay indoors!

Even though it's certainly hot, I don't really think of 2 or 3 hot days as being a heatwave. Having a few hot days scattered around here and there is just a normal part of summer. 2018 however most definitely was a heatwave as that went on and on.

Sorry for going off a tangent there ๐Ÿ˜†, but to now answer your question, during this hot weather I will be taking things more easy and just relax. I try not to do too much work when it's hot.
