Stuck at home

For the past 2 days I have had terrible nights sleep, waking up several times during the night. (Of course paws and claws in the ribs doesn’t help a lot). Eventually waking up with the alarm clock.

The late wake means Rassilon can’t go for a walk in the morning, and the weather isn’t fit to take him out when I get home.

Mind you, at the moment poor Rassilon is laying in the bed panting madly.

The weather forecast was for afternoon rain…at last. Of course, that forecast was from the weather bureau. How do afternoon showers look to the weather bureau?

Lovely blue skies, and a few distant clouds.


And just how cold did it get? Well the temperature did drop while I was getting the camera.

a bit blurred, I prefer to think of it as heat haze.


I guess everyone is sick of hearing about our weather, well try living in it!! 5 months of minimum 32 Celsius days (we did have a week when it was under the 32, but still no less than 28. When you hear that there is some rain and cool weather you get excited, but then you get this and you get somewhat annoyed!!

Because of the heat poor Rassilon can’t go out for a walk in the afternoon, but generally he goes out to the garden when I get home, has a pee and comes inside again. He will go out to eat his chicken, but is straight back inside.



Today we had 2 guys in the emergency department with severe burns. One had 2 burned feet. The doctor asked him how he did it, he said he was cooking his tea. The doctor asked how he could burn his feet while cooking his tea, the guy said the instructions on the can said pierce lid and stand in boiling water for 15 minutes.

The next guy had 2 burned ears. He was asked how he did it and said he was doing some ironing when the phone rang. He answered the phone but put the wrong hand to his ear. The doctor accepted that, but asked how he burned the other ear, and he said, well, I had to call an ambulance!!
