HOT.

Posted on: January 3, 2012

I’m useless in the hot weather. Any time it’s 35 degrees or over I’m just a flubber of mess on the floor and I can’t do anything. It’s been this weather for three days now and I’ve accomplished basically nothing. Although yesterday we went and saw Breaking Dawn and spent the hottest part of the day in an air-conditioned shopping centre, so that was a bit easier to handle.

The most annoying thing is, is that we have a reverse-cycle air conditioner sitting in a box in our house waiting to get installed. And it’s supposed to get installed this week, but after today it’s all like low to mid twenties and we probably won’t use it. Ha! I guess I should enjoy this weather seeing as Melbourne gets it approximately 5 days a year πŸ˜›

I haven’t mentioned yet that we have pretty much zero dollars to spend for these whole holidays. Well, we have a bit, but it’s little enough that we really can’t go out more than say twice a week for groceries, and maybe treat ourselves to lunch/dinner out once a fortnight. So it’s the best time for it to be sweltering hot because we literally don’t have to do anything. I’m putting off my homework until it’s cooler (probably bad mistake but anyway) and there’s no point cleaning the place, exercising or going outside when it’s this warm. So I’ve been trawling blogs and playing Lego Harry Potter all day today πŸ™‚ It’s been fairly entertaining!

I’m waiting for the cool change – it’s supposed to be 22 degrees and raining tomorrow, which is much more my kind of weather. We’re having Dad, Chris and Chelsea up to our place to play Gran Turismo and watch 24 tomorrow afternoon, so the morning will be my time to get some stuff done without sitting in a pool of my own sweat (there’s an image for you!)

Until then I’m going to continue being a huge bum πŸ™‚
