So, I wrote this last week. And I know I pretty much only write when I have something to complain about followed by some cute pics of my kids. Boring. I know. Worst blogger ever. This post is not going to change any of that.
You’ll recall from last week’s post that I was annoyed with the weather forecast and how it would effect the placement of my Christmas tree. I went ahead and put the tree up in front of the heater anyway.
You’ll be pleased to know that the weather kept its word and I had to move the Christmas tree in order to use the heater before the week was out. The week which saw us using the air conditioner on the two sweltering hot days and the heater on the other days. We had heat haze and a thunderstorm, hail and what looked like snow all in the same week. The difference in temperature from Tuesday to Thursday was a whole 27 degrees celcius.
I am carrying sunscreen and umbrellas in the car at all times and could use both in the same day.
I am sitting here again on a hot sunny day wishing Melbourne would just tick a damn box and choose which season it wants to be right now.
My kids think it snows at Christmas because of all the American TV shows that depict Christmas in winter. I finally got them to understand that Australia has opposite seasons and therefore we would not have snow at Christmas because it is Summer.
Now I just need to make Melbourne understand the same thing.
