That's more like it!

I slept in until 9 o'clock! That's a big sleep in for me. On my first day of holidays I cleaned, washed and cooked, but all at a leisurely pace. I enjoyed the delicious air-conditioning, and feeling so cool from the inside and with the chill lingering on my skin, I sat on the front verandah to drink my coffee in the heat.

In the late afternoon we went up to the McMillans' because Mim and Bill dropped in on their way to Corowa! It has been far too long.

On the way home, though it was past dinner time, we drove out to the house to show the kids the roof. Bethany's room, at the front of the house, facing the street, has two long, thin windows. We really liked the look of them when we chose them, but didn't really think about what they would be like from inside. They are perfect for Bethany, the rest of us can't see out when standing! Tim would be OK with the top window, I imagine. It means that the room will have plenty of natural light, but also a sense of privacy.

It is now the second day of holidays and Andrew and Toby got up early to go for a ride. It's going to be 36 degrees today so that was the time to do it!


  1. It is heating up isn't it? We've had a couple of 40 degree days... hot, hot, hot.

    The lower windows in Bethy's room will be perfect when she's in bed! She'll be able to wake up and see what sort of day it is....

    Mim looks happy, Bill looks straight ahead!

  2. You'll have to put all the furniture on the floor, lots of bean bags etc!!
