I'm Pretty Sure My Brain is Melting

We are having a heat wave in Sydney at the moment and the southern states are even worse. It’s more than just being really hot; the humidity seems to smother you. I am finding it so hard to do anything at the moment as all I can think about is how hot I am. I now know why people spring clean – it’s because summer is too damn hot to be doing any real housework.

Miss Berry and I have been spending most of the week at my Mum’s house with her beautiful, cool pool and her very un-eco-friendly air conditioning. But, for the time being Miss Berry’s heat rash is being kept under control and I am really enjoying the one on one time I am spending with Miss Berry without all the normal household jobs screaming at me.

So, that is why I have not been posting his week - my brain has stopped working because of the heat. This weekend is going to be even worse with temperatures set to exceed 42oC on both days. Hopefully, things will cool down next week and things can get back to normal.

What do you do to cope with the heat?

I too have resorted to un-eco-friendly air conditioning. But its too dam hot to just hang in there.
Hopefully the heat will end by the end of the month and Melbourne can get back to the good old days of rain, drissel and more rain.
Oh the good old days!

At least Sydney hasn't had this weather for as long as Melbourne.

The worst of it is that there isn't any rain - hence the humidity. I remember when really hot weather was followed by huge downpours. I also remember when we left the sprinklers on for hours.

Thems was the days.
