Tag Archives: heat



It’s 11.30 am and its hot. The kind of sticky hot that makes you instantly sweaty the minute you step out of a cold shower. For some reason, possibly the size of my last power bill, I have made a rule about not having the air conditioner on before lunch. I’m starting to think it might be a stupid rule, then again maybe I just need to toughen up a little. Give myself a chance to acclimatise. The problem is I sit in an air-conditioned office for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. I never get a chance to get used to the heat.

I have been waking up too early all week too. What can I say, I’m in Queensland – we don’t have daylight savings. I have been trying to put the time to some productive use, getting started on another advent calendar and some christmas stockings in the time between when I wake up and when I need to get ready for work. Which is why my lounge room looks like this.

I’m working on the assumption that if I leave it like that it will inspire me to finish what I started.
