After an absolutely nightmare of a night (no pun intended) I was so happy to wake up to a cool breeze and no sun in the sky! Yes, that's right folks - it's not going to be a scorcher today!!!!
Last night was just the worst night I've had since I moved out this way nearly 2½ years ago. There was not one little puff of air blowing through my windows - and let me tell you, I had everything open. That's only the 3rd time that's happened since I moved in! So, there I was, desk fan on the side of the bed plus the ceiling fan on as well. Even with all that, I still spritzed myself a couple of times during the night just to get a little cooler. It was not a comfortable night I can tell you.
It's been so hot and uncomfortable lately that I haven't even been able to escape into my books for relief! Usually I can loose myself in whatever book I'm reading for hours. I tried on numerous occasions over the past few days, and the most I could manage was a good half and hour to an hour at the most before I just could not ignore the heat any longer. I jokingly said to my mum the other day "you'll visit me when I move to Tasmania, or NZ, won't you?" - but after the lung sucking heat over the past 4 days I'm seriously considering a change of address I can tell you!
Though for all my whinging about the heat (I need to vent somewhere) I consider myself lucky I'm not living further west. The western parts of QLD are suffering so much more with the heat and the drought, so really, what do I have to complain about in the scheme of things?
