Today was a scorcher! The temperature reached 33 degrees in Sydney and the winds were blowing in excess of 70km/h which made for a very hot and dry day. Our little house gets very hot in these kinds of temperatures although the back of the house is much cooler in the afternoon which gives us some respite, but when the hot winds blow its just unpleasant. Amy and I went to the gym this morning so she could chill out in the creche and I could work up a sweat on the treadmills, whilst enjoying the air-conditioning! Later we drove over to Gaye’s house so that she could spend some time with her niece and we could totally take advantage of the fact that she has a swimming pool!
