The first really hot day we've had this spring, and I finally got round to emptying the trunks up in the loft, dragging everything out onto the grass for a good airing, and conducting the great biannual changeover from winter to summer wardrobe. Off with the velvet jackets and on with the linen; goodbye to the eiderdown; away with the thermal underwear (save for one complete set of longsleeved vest and longjohns, plus one of the Uniqlo 'heat-tech' sleeveless vests; summer in England is never guaranteed to be all hot all the time).

I wonder if this is the latest I've ever done it? I had my hot-water-bottle out earlier on this week...

Where do you live? Dorset has been roasting for at least a week.

I'm already hitting the problem of trying to find something that is decent while covering as little as possible - and I'm a person who really feels the cold.

I try not to use sun lotion if I can help it. It's pretty nasty for marine wildlife.

I tan gradually. Easy to do while gardening and moving in and out of the shade. If you do that, you don't need sun lotion.
