I've just come back from a nice extra long weekend at the beach...only to find that the hot spell is coming over the next few days, starting today with a forecasted top of 41 degrees. Apparently it will be the longest and hottest spell in over 100 years - with the 41 degrees Celsius being traded in on Saturday for a mild 35 degrees. Ha! Hottest spell in 100 years is saying a lot when Australia was officially founded by European settlers in 1788.
So I am declaring that I cannot possibly blog in such heat, especially since I am back in Melbourne away from the cool ocean breeze!
