Yesterdy was New Years Day and I did nothing:)
I sat on the couch with the airconditioning going full belt and I read and watched the Cricket.
Not good for the environment I know but once things are back to the usual routine it will most likely have been the only time I was able to do that. I did enjoy that feeling of not actually 'doing' anything - shorts and tshirt day, rummaging around in the fridge day, if you want it you can help yourself day (within reason I said to DH), too hot to do anything day.
Yes it was as the kids say - a stinking hot day - another over 40c/102f this time it went up to 43c/109-110f in my back garden - yes stinking hot!! But then looking at what Rose over at Quilted Hills is putting up with I'm not sure which is the worst of the two!! 12f is about -10c not my idea of fun LOL
A cool change came through late in the afternoon and oh, the welcome relief that brought. All the doors and windows were opened and it was sheer pleasure to feel the cool breeze blowing through the house.
Today has been lovely. Mid 20's with a southerly (thats our cool wind - northerlies are the hot ones) The Weather Bureau says temps will start rising again tomorrow and we'll have hot days again. Loooks like I'll be doing some sorting out and cupboard cleaning.
I did actually get DH to go through his ties on NY Eve. Most of his working life he had to wear a tie and so has(HAD) quite a collection but since retiring as well as leaving his wrist watch in the drawer he's only worn a tie about 3 times a year in the past 5 years.
So we disposed of at least 20 to the local opshop/thrift shop and there are still another 20 to 'think' about. Whats to think about I said - a remark not accepted very well - so they are back on the tie hanger up the end of the wardrobe with all the business shirts he felt he had to hold on to:(
I was waiting for remarks about the number of shoes on my side of the wardrobe so decided as it was HOT I'd go and make drinks and not push my luck:) Sort of cool the air.
Tomorrow I'm going to look at what is stockpiled in the garage.
I have several large packing cases out there containing lots of things I've stocked up on, I know theres some large tins of Milo and several bottles of dishwashing liquid and don't tell anyone but I discovered the other day I have 120 rolls of toilet paper out there. Its about the only thing I can't skimp on - recycled just doesn't feel the same so when I see the 'good' ones on special I buy a lot. So 5 x 16 rolls and 5 x 8 rolls will last me a while .......................quite a while.......................but what am I going to do if I see it at a good price during the year or more this lot will last us LOL
