This week was a really tough one for me. The heat was a killer with temperatures here in London getting up to and over 30°C. It was enough for me and my pasty Irish skin to buy a UV umbrella to try and get away from some of the sunlight. (Just got an idea for another blog post).

What people don’t tell you is that when you’re away on your holibobs, well, that’s lovely. But, when you’re trying to do your daily 9-5 it’s really tiring.

For these reasons, this week I decided to play some songs that remind me of summer, even though they may not have been released in summertime.
