24 Signs It's Too Hot In London Right Now
We're not friends with the sun anymore.
You wake up, check the headlines and find out the UK's hotter than Miami, Jamaica AND Athens.
Headlines like this are, for once, no exaggeration.

Apart, that is, from city's beer gardens.
Meanwhile, Oxford Street is a punishing hellscape. More so than usual.
And the thought of getting on a crowded tube makes you want to cry.
You decide hanging out on Southbank is your best option. Water + outdoor bars = bliss, right?
You could try and escape the city, but you know there'd be no respite at the seaside either.

... because all the nice sweets have melted.
You're forced to celebrate birthdays with cakes made out of fruit.
You've built your own swimming pool. With limited success.
Your fridge is otherwise occupied.
This is your daily battle.
