Hot! Hot! Hot!

hey there! I'm here for a brief whinge... (my monthly update is in the works and will be posted next week)

So, here in Perth, we are in the midst of a heatwave... the past 4 days have been 40 degrees Celsius or above (that's 104 degrees Fahrenheit in old money) and tomorrow the weather bureau is promising 42 degrees!!!

Oh Joy!  I don't do hot nor humid and it has been both.

Normally, our air con would be cranked up and we would be able to cope however it decided to curl up it's toes and die on us.

Talk about impeccable frickin' timing!!!

To be fair, the system was old... we guess at least 15 years... and the guy we called out to take a look and see if it could be revived told us we were lucky that it lasted that long. Small consolation though :/

So now we're having to have it replaced as they don't make compressors for our model any more :(
that's going to make the bank balance hurt but we can't not have it... not with the kids

My poor little Miss 3 became heat stressed and very ill even though we were doing everything we could to keep the kids cool, which was super scary. We've packed up and moved in with Nan & Pop and their air con to ride this  horrendous weather out until the new system can be installed.  Luckily, they have a big house so it's not too bad but to be honest now is not the time to be fussy. Cool is cool!

So that's my dummy spit for the day.

Hope you're faring better Take Care ;)

Update: a 42 degree day and a stomach virus do not go well together :(
