Fun in the Sun!

So, it’s happening… the two days of summer this year is upon us – ice creams all round! This morning on the way to work, I passed a shirtless dog walker well aware that this may be the only day shirtlessness can occur and he was clearly determined to make the most of it.

We do get a little excited when the grey skies recede revealing a beautiful blue and, when that is combined with temperatures in double figures, then we behave like we’re in Costa del Cumbria. And who can blame us?

It’s either the time we get the outdoor jobs done or it’s time for 2pm cocktails in the sun. If your skin hasn’t seen much sun yet, be careful. We sort of forget that we can still burn even when it’s still quite fresh and breezy.

Let’s be safe, not sorry. We might, after all, get another two days of sunshine in May so there’s no need to go too mad.

Make sure you:

  • spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm
  • make sure you never burn
  • cover up with suitable clothing and sunglasses
  • take extra care with children
  • use at least factor 15 sunscreen


So, while you’re sipping your post lunch cocktails, you might want to wander into a shady spot for a bit. And if you plan to be outdoors all day in the garden, definitely give yourself a break in some proper shade. We recommend a garden room with the doors open so it still feels like you’re sitting outside but without all the nasty rays doing their damage.

If you don’t have a garden room, do give us a call…
