Hot now Cold and A Birthday Party or Two





I don’t know where to start with this post do I start with today or with yesterday, I should start with yesterday because well yesterday came before today but what the hell I will tell you about today first. 

After getting up with Blain at 7am and having breakfast I read some blogs while waiting for the time to leave and go to Speers Point park for my niece Liarna’s 3rd birthday party it was schedule for midday and I got there around 11.40am I was the first to arrive well after my brother and wife and their girls, but there were the ones having the party.  It was held in the main part of the park not in the playground area, and it was very windy 

I took both Blain and Leo and their mothers turned up between 12.30 & 1pm Jessica arrived before Tasha and stayed a while she even went and bought some hot chips for us…………..

I wanted to take some photos but my camera was flat so no photos does that suck or what…………
Ok now let’s talk a little about yesterday it was bloody stinking scorching hot with temperatures around 45C for those who have no idea what that is in Fahrenheit it is around 113F, what made it worse was that there was a northerly wind blowing which made it just so much hotter. We had all 3 air cons going at home all day and 2 of them going all night as it were so bloody hot.

Today it has been a lot cooler with temps only around 25C and tomorrow it is supposed to be even cooler and it is supposed to rain also. 

Tomorrow is also Sydney-May’s 3rd birthday and we are supposed to be going back out to Speers Point park in the playground area : http://www.lakemac.com.au/variety-playground  for her birthday party but if it is raining Kathy has said it will be held at their place instead. It is in the afternoon and I would prefer if it was earlier but I know that can’t happen as Sydney doesn’t get back from her father’s place till around lunchtime 

Jessica and Leo are staying here tonight as she doesn’t want to go home only to come back here tomorrow for Sydney’s party.

    1. Today it is raining here and I hope that the area that have all the fires gets some rain to help put out the fires and cool things down.

      Looks like Sydney's party will have to be held at Kathy's place since it is raining......

  4. I feel for you with that heat. We had some extreme heat this past summer, and it is no fun at all. The parties look like fun- we never outgrow our love for parties, do we?
