A Touch of Sunstroke

It seems that suddenly summer is here and the full force of the sun at midday. Yesterday I was taking my son to the orthophoniste at lunchtime without realising how hot the sun was.
Rushing around and walking up steep hills probably had an effect as well. Anyway, I had to lie down with a pounding headache and dizziness - reminded me of the first time i had sunstroke which was oddly climbing Ben Lomond on a charity walk when i was about 14.
I seem to remember it was early in the year and not typical sunstroke weather.
Anyway, I will need to remember to buy [and wear] a hat for my next lunchtime trek.

This is a photo of Ben Lomond from 2002
