It just goes on and on like this...
Today, at university, I found a group of 5 other good women! All 6 of us are basically peri-menopausal - we sat around and moaned about the heat, with the sweat clinging to our clothing and wet patches - it really was hilarious in our (very un-normal 2.5 hour) break! I'm so glad I've found a great group who identify with me, but we've been split into smaller workshop groups, so unless we can find each other at lunch or in the lecture theatre with 140 others... There are lots of old people at university! My campus is only for education and social work.
The humidity and the struggle is real people and NO - OF COURSE - there are no fans to be found in the multiple shops I've trawled through late this afternoon.
There is a pool at uni, but we've been told that it is now only open an hour a week and we have to have a lifeguard watch over us. We're not sure if they were joking or not about the hour opening a week or the lifeguard... but man, we so did want to break all the rules today and just go and jump in it!
