flip'n hot!

5:30 - the girl decided to wake up early.
(she was probably just too hot (30oC all night). The colour in her sheets had run from her sweating overnight)
7:30 - I only just began to get my wits about me after 3 strong coffees.
8:30 - hubby-j woke up so I decided to get the other half of my nights sleep.
10:30 - pancakes for brekky as the day begins to heat up even more.
11:00 - deliberate about what exactly we could do in scorching sun and heat, with no shopping centres open for new year's day (i.e. air-con) and two year old in tow.
11:30 - indoor public pool chosen.
1:00 - it just took me that long to fight through the sweat and stickiness to get out the door.
1:15 - huge huge cues, out in the sun, waiting to get into the pool
(at a cost of $15 for adults!?)
1:30 - two large outdoor fountains worked just as well.
(we weren't the only ones!)
2:30 - home to sleep. (about the only thing you can do in 45oC heat)
4:00 - waiting for the forecast change
5:00 - waiting for the forecast change
6:00 - ice cold baths for everyone
7:00 - still waiting for the forecast change
8:00 - I think the weather guys got it wrong.
9:00 - (m...e...l...t..i..n...g..)
10:00 - COOL CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!! (I wonder if I could take all my clothes off and stand outside?)


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Oh my heavens it is hot!!! You are making me feel your pain. I would be taking the ice cold baths on the hour. How about clothes in the refrigerator before you put them on...just a thought.

Think of snowmen, icecream and ice cold lemonaide to cool your spirit.

Take care, Connie
