Stupidly Hot

| | Comments (2)
Another stupidly hot day.  I even bit the bullet and chucked a bit of water on some of the plants in the front garden, even though that goes against my belief that plants in Canberra should be able to survive the summer or they don't belong in Canberra.

Did absolutely nothing all morning and most of the afternoon.  Was just too hot to move. 

Matt and Helen came over mid afternoon and we hung out downstairs for a bit then went for a nice long swim.  Chatted them for a while longer before they went home.  If the weather hadn't been so silly we'd have asked them if they wanted to stay for dinner, but I was just too exhausted.

The poor little fishies (well mainly just the julies, but the multies as well) suffered badly today, with the tank temperature getting up to about 34C.  Quite a few of them have died :(  Chucked in quite a bit of ice, but it didn't really help much, maybe dropping it half a degree or so.

Had a late dinner of pizza and sides, but I really wasn't hungry so didn't each much.

The change that finally came through was just about the most magical thing in the universe...
