Wow, typically British, (unlike this heatwave) we can't cope with our weather. We love it for a week but now I think a lot of us Brits just can't stand the heat - not without a pool and a long cool drink at least.
Everyone I speak to is fed up of being so sweaty during the day and struggling to sleep at night.
I tried to buy a fan today - I tried several large well known retailers to no avail. It would seem that there are no fans to be purchased within a 50 mile radius at least!
I was happy last week to host a garden party; gazebo, bunting and a few bottles of non-alcoholic fizz helped create the perfect setting (well almost).
I found this amazing watermelon cake on Pinterest (on the left) and set to work on my adapted version.
I was so pleased with how it turned out and gave everyone a surprise with the first slice.
Excuse the chipped plate - WHAT WAS I THINKING? But once that baby was done I wasn't going to move it until I had to serve it.
So, I enjoyed the weather last week, struggled this week - maybe I need to host another party?
