#SoCS July 28/18 – Tee, Tea T

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “T, tea, tee.” Theme your post around “tea” or “tee,” or find a word that starts with “T” and talk about that. Bonus points if you manage to incorporate all three. Enjoy!

Today I forfeited my morning cup of tea. It was just too stifling to sip a hot beverage, in temperatures nearing the 30’s at 8am…

I rumaged through my wardrobe to find something suitable to wear. It was going to be a long day, driving back up to Brum with my children in the car…

After the shennanigans of the last trip (5 hours for a 3 hour journey) I was not looking forward to it. They had argued the whole way there…

Then I came up with a plan (read bribery!) We are with my Pops for 10 days at least, so I made them a deal. If they could cope with being together, no full on arguments and rows, no whining (Lil Princess) or winding the other up (Lil Man) then I would log £2 against their name. If we get home and they managed a whole TEN days without bloodshed, they’d have earned £20! At the time of writing this we have managed a day and they have really controlled themselves… how long will that last?

Back to the suitable clothing… I tried on a tee-shirt but even that felt too sticky on my body. A shower felt pointless as I was glistening (Ladylike way of saying sweating like a P-I-G!) within moments of getting out. Then I remembered my lovely tie-dyed swing dresses… Oh they feel so good in this weather! I have around five of them, picked up from a great cheap shop here by my parents place!

And boy was I glad that was what I wore, because it did indeed take up another FIVE HOURS, sitting in a car with AC that is helpfully NOT WORKING!

Tea-riffic! Temperatures Tee-tering Towards Top Thirties Throughout!

    When the heat is unbearable and makes everyone cross, bribery is an excellent resort. Well done, Ritu. 🙂

    Great use of the prompt today, Ritu. Yes, traveling with kids is tough. Glad that Pops is doing better. The dresses sound very cool for that weather. We just got back from visiting my husband’s mom in Oregon and temps were in the 90’s there. Good thing I checked the temps before we left. I repacked and added shorts and a a summer dress as well!

    Travelling with kids in hot weather – yip! I may have experienced that delight. The heat in England is amazing at the moment.
