Man its been hot here for the past few days! The kids have spent the past 2 days in and out of the pool (its only a small one don't freek out). The animals have been too hot poor shadow our little dog was too tired and hot to bark yesterday. It got to 39C yesterday which is unheard of in Tassie (thats 102 F) we might get the odd low 30's but yesterday was disgusting! The little kids are having a really hard time trying to sleep even with the airconditioner on, I put the fans in the little kids rooms just to cool them off. Gabriel didnt go to sleep till after 9.30 last night which was painfull for everyone, Niamh went down ok but the heat kept waking her up and at 4am she refused to go back to sleep so I stayed up with her till 5.30 am before she went back to sleep.

It was also way too hot for our fethered friendsthe chickens with 2 of them dying yesterday afternoon, the laying pen was that hot that it cooked all the eggs they had laid! So now we have 1 left with a hope that a friend can get us a couple more soon. Its going to be hot again today 35C. Im trying my best to keep the plants alive with late night watering in the vegie patch. Hey it could be worse I could be in Melbourne where its been 40C and over! EWWWWWWWW!
