We're all going on a summer holiday.

Except, actually, we're not. Mainly we're enduring the hot weather from the discomfort of our boiling London offices, the tube, or various parks in which people think it's acceptable to lounge about wearing nothing but their underwear.

Or, if we are on a summer holiday, we're subjected to topless sunbathers and forced to slap on greasy suncream all day.

What a joyful time.

Grumpy Young Women: looking forward to the nights drawing in.

Sam P

Oh good, summer's here.

Feet ripped to shreds by badly designed 'summer footwear'? English skin quietly sizzling under the rays from your unshaded office windows? Yes, it's a sexy time, summer. Join Sam as she walks you through a Grumpy Young guide to the cruellest season.

Shelly

The perils of sun cream.

Possibly the most annoying thing about summer, particularly if you live in a hot city, is sun cream. Shelly just loves that slimy feeling created by layers of gloopy cream and sweaty London dirt. Find out all about the perils of sun cream with Shelly.

That's quite enough frollicking in parks.

Why are we all expected to strip off and lounge about in parks as soon as the sun comes out? You know what? It's not actually very comfortable or decent! Maddie would rather relax indoors, thank you.

Rosie

Put them away, love.

So you've made it to your beach holiday. You've got the sun cream on and you've decided to recline on the sand. But your experience is invariably ruined by the arrival of the completely unnecessary topless sunbather. Rosie's not having any of this nonsense.
