    Great posts folks 😎

    I am now adding:

    No bra.

    Feet in a bowl of cool water (with added rose and geranium bath salts). 
    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Or me, but some say I could do with one.

    I have a cool shower if I get too hot. Even just a quick one refreshes me + a change of undies.

    Undies have gone the way of the bra

    I'm with @B3👍 Also, when feeling overheated  I run really cold water over the my wrists, back and front, for a few minutes.

    Stark, broccoli naked inside, a loose shirt and a sock for protection of things outside 😉
    Judging by the number of puce-shouldered people coming through the shop yesterday I'm guessing they need to listen to AuntyRach more

    I'm heading for home shortly to get out and toast my old bod.

    No bra here either, folks. Moobs swinging free as nature intended ;)

    When washing hands I run cold water on my wrists for an extra few seconds. Really cools me down.

    I do eat the occasional ice lolly as well :) 

    Wherever possible I'll do jobs that allow me to follow the shade around.

    I have a big, quiet fan in the bedroom and a table fan on the dinner table.   There are also good number of ice packs in the freezer at all times. I also keep a close eye on the forecast and remind myself that temps will dip back down in a few days (this week).
