Last night we went for a few drinks and a bite to eat in Balham with Rich (Ben's dad) and Alex (his youngest brother). We ended up grabbing food at The Clarence was a brilliant choice on my part as the food was delicious! We ended up all going for big juicy burgers with french fries and gherkins. Yummy. After a good catch up and one glass of wine too many (two is my absolute max now) we headed home back to our flat which I have now nicknamed "the hottest bloody flat in London".
I was preparing myself for another shits night sleep when Ben proudly declared that he had "the solution to all of our sweltering problems".
Apparently Ben had been researching how to keep cool at night earlier on in the day and had discovered a nifty tip: frozen socks.
I'm sure you are wandering what the hell I'm talking about here but trust me on this one.
You take a pair of socks, make them damp, put them in the freezer for twenty minutes and then wear them to bed.
IT WORKS. Like an absolute dream.
Frozen socks. Who knew??
Sure your bed sheets get a little wet at the end and you will probably wake up in the morning to find your frozen socks on the floor and rather unfrozen...but I would say that's a damn good trade off for 8 hours of uninterrupted and pure "wow I feel much cooler" sleep.
So there's my tip of the day.
