    Especially one as unworldly as Adrian's mum. On the phone last night she told Adrian that as she burns easily she's got some factor 20 suncream. She couldn't believe it when he told her we took factor 50. Then she started asking about clothes - how many days, formal clothes for evenings, a thick cardigan for if it gets cold in August...

    We're going to visit her in a few weeks to give her a list of things and make sure she doesn't pack her tiara.

    This could make for some trip report.

    Ah bless her. I see so many people who have no clue about the heat here.

    She might need the cardi for the aeroplane though but definately not for walking around - I think the August heat might be a big shock for her, there's nothing that can prepare you for the heat and humidity.

    At least she can relax by your pool and not have to rush about all the time :-)

    Well, you could turn her house heat up as high as possible, turn her bathroom shower on full blast, hot water only and have her stand fully clothed in the hot steamy room. Then you could explain to her that she's feeling an approximation of a cool morning in August, and that it only gets hotter and steamier as the day wears on. that might help, no?

    The tiara sounds like the most useful thing she's mentioned so far...might want to leave that one in...

    Giving her a packing list is a good idea. Good luck. ;)

    Take her to your local gym, drop some weights on her feet and then make her do 1000 star jumps on the spot... in the sauna. Then ask her to close her eyes and envision this 100 times over, and that's how she'll feel after her first morning.
