      get a fan and put a bowl of ice in front of it and it blows the cool air around and open window so the hot air can be blown out :)

      I so feel for you guys. We went through hell last week with the high temps. We were told our a/c was ok and that it wouldn't cope with this sort of heat. I got onto the agent and they sent a guy 'round to service it. The pads were condemed and the water wasn't even switched on Today its a different house. Niamh has been asleep since 6.10 last week she was still rolling around in sweat at 10.30.

      I so know what you are going through but have no answers except to get a portable a/c from the shops and chill a room.

      You can swap places with me!

      It's my last day at work and hardly anyone is here because of the snow
      Think I'll be finishing early.

      Ours went wrong on the first hot day, bought fans from Bunnings, landlord lent us a portable air con, makes us feel damp all the time, OH wont turn it off!! I prefer just to sit in front of the fan, and use a wet cloth to cool me down. I'm still not complaining though, rather this than snow any day! I'm so happy.
