Sunburn

Removed the old (and broken) dishwasher this morning, and an oven and hob too (not broken, just not wanted). Had to buy an extra part – a HEP2O appliance fitting with tap (really good) – as the previous inline valve had broken. The new dishwasher arrived and I fitted that back into the place of the old one.

Spend some of the early afternoon in the sun. I scared myself slightly with the fact that getting sunburnt once in two years triples your chances of melanoma! Sunburn is literally just reddening of the skin!

Sunburn is a clear sign that the DNA in your skin cells has been damaged by too much UV radiation. Getting sunburn, just once every 2 years, can triple your risk of melanoma skin cancer.

Sunburn doesn’t have to be raw, peeling or blistering. If your skin has gone pink or red in the sun, it’s sunburnt. For people with darker skin, it may just feel irritated, tender or itchy.

It’s less than a week until I fly to Corfu! Very exciting.

Repaired the screen on my mums iPhone for about the 4th time this year yesterday. Funny that parents always seem to think that it is only their kids who’re careless with their phones…

Not much else to say really.
