It struck me that my Monday posts generally end up being a string of random musings. And this week? Well it's no different...
We've just hobbled through a heatwave here in the west. Apparently you need three consecutive days over 35C for it to be considered a heatwave - despite the official temps being a few degrees cooler than what I recorded we well and truly went above and beyond the 35C. Saturday saw the temp on the back deck hit 41, Sunday only reached 39.5 and today I felt every one of the 43 degrees that were showing when I got back from down the hill a little after midday. And that, my lovelies, is HOT!!! Thank goodness it's only supposed to be 32C tomorrow, I think we'll all be pretty happy to have a cool change.
I responded to something on a forum last week and stirred up a little bit of backlash. I was planning to write a whole post about forums and the things I really dislike about them but... well, it all seemed a bit negative and whiny and now I've lost the momentum. That said, I'm sure another forum will annoy me enough again shortly to make me actually write that post.
I'm in the process of organising Hubby's 40th birthday present. It'll take something pretty darn impressive to top the party he threw for me plus the gorgeous presents plus the surprise plane ticket to Queensland. But I think I might just have come up with something that fits the bill. Oh yeah! Now I just have to get it to all come together and pull the whole thing off. And not tell him. Because I kinda suck at keeping secrets from him. So that'll be interesting LOL.
Did I tell you that my work hours have changed a bit? I get to start later, which is great because that means I get to fit in a walk each day, the mornings are less of a rush (I even get a few chores done before I leave) and I get to take the kids to school each day. But that means I finish later. In theory that should mean I get home later. And it does, but not a whole lot later. Because I leave work a bit later I miss the peak of peak hour and actually spend less time on the road. And because I get home later Hubby has taken over the cooking for our midweek dinners. Win, win, win!
So what's happening in your pocket of the world? I haven't had any comments for ages so I'd really love if someone would tell me what they've been up to lately. Yep, I'm reduced to shameless begging. Shocking, I know.
