Today's the 1st of November! And I'm going to try and do my version of Nanowrimo and finish some of my WIPs. Wish me luck!!!!!

In the interests of saving petrol (and because it's usually too cold for me) I won't turn on the aircon in the car till it's 30 degrees (86) or over. Put the dog in the car and on goes the airconditioning!

We're actually home on a Saturday morning and what is the 10 year old little guy watching? Little kids shows like Miffy and Caiou (?). I thought I'd escaped them years ago. But what is really scary is I remember some of the episodes *shudders*.

The little guy participated in an inter-school tennis competition yesterday and despite me wearing 30+ sunblock, a hat and sitting in the shade I still got sunburnt. *sigh* I need to try better sunblock or go back to zinc which even though it stains all my clothes I never burn.

Today and tomorrow we've got our usual surf club committments. Which means a total of about 8 hours on the beach...

Good luck! You'll be fine :)

Sun....I want sun *loos whistfully out of winder* Is very cold here. Sunburn wise, have you tried p20? I burn so badly, through factor 60 sunblock in half an hour in Greece I blistered. You apply it twice half hour before going out, then later in the day you can apply more or sun cream-it acts like a shield against the sun.

I sound very pimpy *grins* but a friend who worked in plastic surgery and then dermatology recced it to me, might be worth a try.

Thanks for the rec. I'm going to see if I can find some of the p20 here. I'll try anything!

I can totally relate on the sunburn issue. Dispight my mostly Native American ancestry, I somehow wound up with the fair skin of the lone Scotsman who knocked up one of my ancestors. I use 45+ and still burn, peel and burn again. No noble redskin in me!

30+ is the highest here, I wonder why...

See the Scots genes are the strongest! Hee. In my case it's the Irish ancestors.

Eesh, and more sun on top of sunburn. Ouchies. I use Aveeno sunscreen. It comes in SPF over 50 (me? pale?), and pretty much every other sunscreen I've ever tried makes me break out like mad since my skin is sensitive. When I use anything under 50, I still burn if I'm out all day. *eyes other comments* I may give that p20 a try, though. Aveeno you only have to reapply after 5 hours, but that does still mean bringing it with if you'll be out all day...And people wonder why I always carry an umbrella for sunny days, not rain. I used Zinc myself back in the day before 50+ sunscreen. Heh. That stuff do make a mess, don't it? :P

Zinc is the messiest! But I used it yesterday and not an iota of sunburn - so if I don't find any of my flisters recommendations it's back to the zinc!
