Hi Carole

It might not seem like it, but I can relate!
I am sick of the heat here - temps in excess of 30C every day since November - it is so hot and humid that the ground steams after it rains! The heat drains me and makes the ms worse and I can't wait for winter (not that we have much of one here) - would love to see some of your white sxxx - my kids have never seen snow in their whole lives! Houses are generally not airconditioned here either...
So, too much of anything can get to you and I pray that you get a change soon!

Must be tough - I suppose English weather has some advantages. The hot is never too hot and the cold is bearable!

Oh Ally, I feel for you. Is there any chance that you could move. That type of weather (hot and humid) makes me turn into cooked spaghetti!! I can't do anything then.
Yes, things are changing here and my mood is better...
The support here is so precious... thanks, Carole

Hi Mrs.G
Yes, where ms is concerned there is a lot to be said for the English weather! You get lots of cool damp weather, interspersed with periods of warmth or cold....I grew up there, and miss it now!

Carole - I am really glad that you can feel Spring approaching now and that it has lifted your mood - I also love the support here. I can't really move - my kids are young and have roots and family here - even if I moved somewhere else in the country, I might get a bit of a colder winter, but would still have a very hot and long summer - that's Africa for you!
If I wouldn't lose my disability (and if it wasn't so expensive to live there), I might eventually consider returning to the UK - can't afford it now, and anyway, am very scared of the NHS!

Well best of luck to you Ally... Maybe try to get air conditioning at least. I really don't know how things are acquired where you are. Do take care of yourself and the kids. I know they come first but if you don't take care of yourself then you won't be able to help them....Carole

maybe see if you can dig a partial basement :)
with a dehumidifier, underground is a godsend in hot weather as far as i'm concerned.

When I lived in an area that had particularly hot summers, e.g., 110 - 115°F, I spent a lot of time in public buildings which had air condition such as the library.
