FAO Retards

Whoops, for some reason this ended up in "pending" and should have been out some time last week when it was all a bit toasty in the UK,  Sorry.

Who have no idea what to do when the yellow thing goes up for the day and it all gets a bit toasty.  Congrats to the UK for having its hottest day in 40 years and an even bigger hats off for publishing how to cope with hot weather.
  • Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. You can open the windows for ventilation when it is cooler.
  • Stay out of the sun and don't go out between 11:00 and 15:00 (the hottest part of the day) if you're vulnerable to the effects of heat.
  • Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.
  • Drink cold drinks regularly, such as water and diluted fruit juice. Avoid excess alcohol, caffeine (tea, coffee and cola) or drinks high in sugar.
  • Wear loose, cool clothing, and a hat and sunglasses if you go outdoors.
  • Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.
