    Urghhhh! I read my book in the garden for maybe 2 hours this morning. And now I'm burnt. Not impressed. My mum keeps telling me off :eek: the biggest problem is it's not like even...I was lying down so it's just the front of me and only parts of my leg because I'm wearing 3/4 trousers so there's a huge different. I have PE tomorrow! I'm gonna look so weird :laugh:

    oh no, have a nice cool shower or bath and plenty of aftersun on, i did the same yesterday caught the back of my arms, put suncream on but obviously forgot to do the back.
    And dont worry about PE, i am sure you wont be the only one with sun burn.

    you've still got time to get back out and burn the rest and then not only will you be all stylish in matching red to compliment the colour of your dogs lead but you will have an excuse not to do PE! Bonus! :D:D:D

    awwww poor you!!! i`m super burnt too but it`s my own fault as we were at the beach and i kept saying it wasn`t that hot so factor 6 would be fine (the breeze threw me off in my defense) so now i`m a lovely shade of pink. have a shower and stick some after sun on before it starts to hurt

    Aloe Vera's good for sunburn, I'm lucky my mediterranean ancestry means I just go brown:D but I can't tolerate the heat much as I get really sweaty:frown:
