busy when I should be quiet...............

I have a couple more swaps to post about but it has been busy here when i thought it would be quiet............I finally got the pics taken and started to organise the posts..............but I had an unexpected day trip out yesterday to pick up one of boy wonders mates from away and hit the sales....never get to the shop sales........well just slightly did some shopping damage as Fairy girl needed a pile of bedding and I got it all on great sales.....I got a couple of pairs of shorts and a dress..........then today we are doing a thing with my side of the family so out again........and it is hot again..........3 days over Christmas between 30-33 now high 30's again well for as far as I can see on the weather forecast............we had a 11 day run before Christmas too.......it sure is summer in my part of Australia............"but it's only HOT when it's hot in the cities apparently"..........no mention of the heat otherwise.........stupid media people............Sunday will sure be a day of rest here..........well for me after we feed.............
and I haven't even had some time in the sauna Chookshed yet............
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  2. I live on the Sydney fringe, and work in the CBD. It is regularly in the high 30s and low 40s and it never rains. To listen to the people at work it rains all the time and it is not hot, so I totally understand your frustration. I don't listen to the news anymore, if one more forecaster says nice and warm when it is in the mid 30s I will not be responsible for my actions, I am sick of the editorialising. Just report the news and weather.

  3. Dust storms only occur in the city also, hailstorms and heavy rain only occur in the city also - I tend to not listen to news or weather reports anymore! We have heat and no rain predicted down here for the next week also Chooky - you have missed out on what we have received so I hope some rain comes your way soon!

  4. We feel your pain - cant be bothered complaining about the weather - I'm stuck with it and I hate it.
    Sales - now thats another matter! - worth it if you need stuff and can make an early start!
    I hope you get to the chookshed sometime Chooky, I am camped out in my Sewing Space!

  6. I really hate the way they try and glamorize the heat by saying "beach weather" or "lovely sunshine" grrrrr.....it's "HOT" people! Give me cold anyday. I feel hot just reading your posts and often wonder how you cope with it all. I have lived in some outback places and know how unbearable the heat can be.
