Although we've had a reprieve from the hellish heat of a couple of weeks ago, it's still warm. Particularly at inside events where there's no air-conditioning or fans and that have limited windows to let the breeze through.
But I've discovered a useful tip to aid in such situations and I'm about to share it with you to apologise for not being a good, regular blogger.
Aren't I kind?
Are you ready?
Look around the audience or congregation and sit next to a post-menopausal woman. As the room heats, she will begin fanning herself. And although she may not actually be fanning you, there's enough air moving in the general vicinity to make life a little more bearable.
And, of course, if you have lots of post-menopausal friends, you may be in the enviable situation of finding a seat between two post-menopausal women who will both start fanning themselves.
And the chance that life gets any better than that?
... Approximately None!
How have the summer holidays been?
