How are you going in your bit of this big old world?
Around here Summer has done a bit of an encore, and we are in the middle of a heat wave that is supposed to last for 4 more days, it is seriously hot!
We are spending a lot of time in water, either at the beach or at my parents place in their lovely pool, or if we are at home a cool shower is the order of the day.
We spent today having a dip in the sea at Point Leo and then walking up to my parents and jumping in the pool. The beach was crowded with like minded people, cooling off in the beautiful clear water.
I think it has been one of the best years for swimming at Point Leo in a long time, the water has been like a tropical island and snorkelling has had really excellent visibility, and although it is technically a surf beach, the waves have been tiny so you can just float around all day if you like!
Nights are a different story, restless and wakeful. We don't have air con, so I just leave the windows open at night to try and cool the house down, which is less effective as the heatwave continues.
But never mind, we are not doing much on these hot days, so it doesn't matter if I am going around half awake. ( It is also a long weekend here, so an extra day of lounging around for everyone, although my boys are going to a music festival tomorrow in the city that I am sure will be boiling!)
As you can imagine, not a lot of crafty action has been going on, it has been too hot to hook!
I am sure I'll remedy that soon though.
