This morning as I lay in bed and contemplated rising for another hot, hot day ....
I looked up at the ceiling and this is what I saw.
Quite different to what most of my fellow bloggers in the Northern Hemisphere see on their ceilings!
( the round thing is the air-con inlet).
February is living up to its reputation as the hottest, most unpleasant month of the year here
and life would be very difficult indeed without these mod cons
- air conditioning and fans .
All this made me think about how different our houses are too.
Ours are built to cope with the heat -
lots of big windows -shutters and blinds to keep out the sun,
open plan rooms which flow from one to the other without doors or walls in some cases to promote airflow.
and walls in neutral colours to make you feel cool.
There's nothing cosy about our homes.
We don't want cosy - We want cool !
After two days of 35C plus we have just had a HUGE thunderstorm
and 70mm of rain in half an hour !!
Oh, oh the next line of storms is rolling in.
I'm off to unplug all the electrical stuff again .
