I am very glad that we had plenty of time to pack for this move, because it is TOO HOT to pack more than one small box before stopping for a large glass of water and, possibly, a restorative two hour nap. At least I am not whining about it too much and I know this because Doc C has commented several times about how my tolearance for warm weather has improved over the years we have lived here.
This weekend was actually pretty good for heat avoidance.
Saturday we spent at Randy and Laura's for Jasmine's send off to Australia, which was lovely. There was a cake with a map of Australia on it and everything! Jasmine is going to be spending a semester in Oz, but her visa is for six months so she might stay a bit longer to explore under her own steam. I am so excited for her, it is going to be a proper adventure whilst still helping her to get her undergraduate degree - Bonus!
On Sunday it was as hot as the surface of the sun. I am sure of it. It was desperately uncomfortable in the house, and we basically both ended up fitfully napping under the living room ceiling fan, until Doc C finally snapped and demanded we go to the cinema just to get some air-condtioning. There was nothing we really desperately wanted to see, but "The Amazing Spiderman" will always be pertinent to our interests so we watched that. Eva seemed to particularly enjoy it, and was extremely wriggly through out; for once she actually carried on bumping around after Doc put his hand on my tummy so he got to feel her moving too.
