FORTY FREAKIN' TWO DEGREES!

That was how SCORCHING HOT it was yesterday.

Happy New Year was celebrated with heat, heat and more heat. I am SO glad I got the air-cond. it and believe it or not, I think hubby is secretly pleased we have it too. He had it on before I had the chance to switch it on. Heh.

Needless to say, work was pretty quiet last night, as everyone and everybody will be at the city square waiting for the countdown and fireworks. I truly believe many will be running to the pharmacies first thing this morning for lots of things. Hangover pills, heat rash, oral rehydration salts, sunburn relief, etc. etc. With the heat yesterday, combined with alcohol, which further dehydrates oneself, mm mmmm........

Today wasn't any better at 37 degree. We spent the day at Chaddy having lunch at Nando's with Ching and Jeya and their families, and a great bowling game. I didn't play as I have blogivitis carpal tunnel, wakakkkaaa. So I went on retail therapy. It was such a relief we had a cool change earlier in the evening and tomorrow at 25.

THAT'S MELBOURNE FOR YOU!

Sweetpea,

Happy New Year to you and family! Stay cool. Over here it's only 1F with windchill of -15F. Guess I'm not going anywhere but start a fire and watch movies!
