Another hot and sticky day. Had a cool thunderstorm this arvo - except the power went out twice - so all the pcs except the server on the ups and the laptop needed restarting - twice - and the fish tank pumps needed restarting too!

Ever tried getting dressed with one arm when it is so hot your clothes are sticking to you? That's awkward!

Well my office is a sauna even at this time of night so I am going back into the airconditioned house to get some more codeine in me.

Resting and recovering
Last night's sleep was broken and painful - thank goodness for drugs. I like the "floaty" feeling!
Today was seriously hot - 36 degrees at the highest. Obviously I did no cycling today.
We went to see Bang today - a drum group doing a choreographed routine in the shopping centre.
While there we had a browse through Supre - a great place to shop.

I am still here - just been busy.
Little bro has been up and we been doing stuff like playing cards, talking loudly at night time in order to keep others awake (sorry) riding the motorbike and playing with the nieces (his - my daughters). Jono also has a hand puppet called Jeff. The kids call them Uncle Jeff and Aunty Jono - go figure!

Seaworld was fun - as usual - Jono came with his friend's sister Esther who is 10. Miranda actually went on the rollercoaster this time - she LOVED it and wanted to do it again but we had no time left - so next time I can see that all we will do is go round and round and up and down and corkscrew!

The humidity is back - it has been disgustingly sticky. Today is cooler because of clouds - only 28 degrees and 78% humidity as I write. ...Did I mention I hate humidity...

Jude has a pregnant jaw - at least it hurts becuase she is pregnant - this doesn't not tend to create happy wife - hence the NO MORE BABIES phrase has been heard several times recently. 8 weeks to go and counting!
