I want my ozone layer back

I got sunburned yesterday at the RSPCA event.

Yes, I was standing outside in Australia for four hours without a hat or sunscreen, should've known better, blah blah blah. But it's practically winter. It was 12 fricking degrees! The only time you should ever get sunburned in winter is when it's more than made up for by the fact you are on an exciting skiing holiday in the Alps. And I wasn't.

So I want my ozone layer back. Has anyone seen it?

I few years back I spent a day walking around Wellington, sightseeing. It rained, all day, and I (stupidly) thought that if I was wearing a raincoat I did not need sunscreen. I was mistaken!

I did know that I should wear sunscreen even on cloudy winter days, but it was the sort of "knowing" that only comes back to you after the event. Grrr.

Unfortunately because I was meant to be trying to look pretty and talk to people, I had my shoulders back and head up all day, so burned in nasty cleavage-y places and on the tip of my nose. Ouch.

I too sustained cleavage-y sunburn yesterday. But as it's early summer here I should have known better. And really, I do wear sunscreen usually. But I missed the sun too much (it's been rainy and cold here for the last 2 weeks) that I just didn't care. Course now I do care.
