Woke up this morning to hazy skies. It's hot these days! 3 changes of clothes a day hot. 3 litres of drinking water a day hot. I set my fan on high at bedtime but it helps little. On some nights I hear the occasional low rumbling of thunder but there is no rainfall. Heading out to lunch has become a rather torturous affair. Sun relentless. Brain fried. Utterly beaten down by the heat. Way. Too. Hot.
Tammy and Cindy have made plans to visit from Hong Kong this July. I wonder if they'll take well to this seemingly 40 degrees weather? My co-worker, Zan, says we should all suck it up. People in India a dropping dead by the thousands under the 50 degrees heat so we should be thankful that we don't suffer the same fate. I know she's right but I can't help complaining!
Took a few days off last week to do (almost) nothing. No emails, no phone calls, no needy people. Ate well, slept like a baby. My annual leave balance is fast depleting and deciding whether to take some time for myself was a huge struggle on my part. Still, I finally convinced myself that life shouldn’t just revolve around aged parents and hospital appointments. I'm important too!
