There’s nothing quite so unpredictable as the great British weather.

One minute it’s overcast and you’re wearing duffle coats, scarves and UGG boots.

The next you’re swapping them for shorts and bikinis.

I’ve never been very good at being a beach bum.

For a start, I can rarely sit still for more than an hour before I’m sloping off in search of a good book, ice cream or someone to chat with.

In the excitement of the recent hot spell though, me and my fluffy pink towel could not wait to hit the beach.

Unfortunately, I forgot the suntan lotion and fell asleep.

When I did stand up the elastic in my bikini bottoms then snapped.

So I ended up red-faced in more ways than one.
