Just while we are on about the heat.............. Don't forget your doggies...
Please don't walk them in this heat.
If you can't stand on paving in bare feet - why should they???
Our Bedlington Boys are bored but at least they won't have blisters!!!
ahhh thanks guys, im currently in Sheffield scraping the ice from the inside of my windscreen before I leave for work, you can see how it could be a bit odd coming to such a hot place
LC & Tyke you crack me up.
There's a neat guide that SA Health have produced around Extreme Heat - this is just one of them (link below) - they have others specifically for children, teenagers, older people, pregnant women. It's really quite serious when people underestimate what the really hot weather can do.
Crikey! Has the weather changed since the 70's? We used to always have a couple of weeks where the weather would touch 40 or above!! I remember once that we were nearly sent home from school as the temperature was up to 44/45 but it had to be 46 to be sent home - how gutted were we as kids!
PS by a couple of weeks i mean total of days not a full week all at once.
Lazy Cow you saying about drawing the curtains etc made me smile as that is what my mum used to do when it got to 32 and above. We used to meet dad at the door and warn him that it was salad again and mum wasnt in a good mood.....................lol. He would have already worked that out as the curtains were drawn...lol! Hence the reason why they returned after 13 years!!!!!
Enjoy it Guys and Gals but sensibly.
Here and settled

Hot Hot Hot!
Been reading about the heat - is this extreme unusual??? Thanks for the link to the leaflet, I was reading in the uk news about a British boy who died in Perth recently when walking with his dad :( as we have never been accustomed to such heat I wondered what advice there was so cheers!
A bit :) I know my MIL was complaining last year or the year before that it hadn't gotten above 35C

Have a look at this to give you a general idea
Phew! thanks heavens for that, thanks Snifter. I sleep with my windows open here in the UK winter I'll be to scrape off the pavement in 40+ heat!
I find it's not so much the highs that are the problem but the overnight lows. If it cools down overnight and the mornings are pleasent and cool thenit's so much easier to cope with the highs.
Yes that's true. I've lived in Adelaide all my life and I don't think the weather has changed. We used to get heatwaves and that was in the days of no airconditioning, we were lucky to have a fan. Us kids used to not care and just play with water. In those days we also slept outside at night as it was pretty safe to do that. We had a big back garden and used to drag out our mattresses. It was fun - we used to look at the stars and talk most of the night. Always have nice memories of family times in the hot weather. Also the houses in those days were built with high ceilings, double brick and it took a while for homes to heat up but they did take a while to cool down.
