Very hot....

This week has been a week of mad weather. One day super hot, the next cool and raining. It's certainly  a lot warmer than it usually is at this time of the year.

Today it was as hot as a furnace and very windy. We retreated to a local pool to cool down.

M wore her new swimsuit for the first time. There's no chance of losing her when she's wearing it:


Other exciting things this week included scoring a pair of free Nudie jeans from one of my champion Op shopping colleagues. These cost about $200 new, so I was dead chuffed to get a pair for nothing.


We had a fabulous Thai feast at some friends' house on Saturday night, and as a result felt a little dusty today.

The sky has finally turned moody, so fingers crossed for a cooling southerly wind very soon.


Hope you're having a good weekend!

  1. It's been weird weather over here as well - pouring it today though...
    Love that swim suit but yes my mother put me in red and white stripes just to keep an eye on me one summer when i was going through a tomboy phase. Good score on the jeans Ruth!

    1. Thanks Naomi. Sorry to hear about mad weather in London, although it's often the case...

    1. it sure is. I don't mind heat, but I hate dry, windy heat. it's disastrous for bushfires too...

  3. A week ago we had 33C and very windy too, four days later we got hail, crazy! It was worrisome when it was so hot and dry so I'm wishing you cooling southerly winds.

    We have another month of potential Santa Ana conditions so I'm crossing my fingers we both survive the hot and dry and windy without incident. Hoping you're feeling less dusty as well.

    1. Fingers crossed that your mad weather ceases. Do you get bushfires in your area? Australia is often ravaged by fires.... terrible.
