With yesterday’s hottest-ever temperature in Britain, I took the government advice, and stayed hydrated.
In fact, I think I consumed more liquid in one day than I ever have in the past. I tallied up my intake.
Tea. 6 large half-pint cups
Water. 1.5 litres. (2.6 pints)
Milk. 2 litres. (3.5 pints)
Red wine. 1 large 300ml glass. (Half a pint)
Today we are back down to a maximum of 32C. (Almost 90F)
It still feels very hot, made worse by a strong breeze blowing HOT air.
But so far I have only had 4 cups of tea…
