Those that know me recognise the fact that I often talk about the weather, especially my dislike of our hot summers. Right now Perth appears to be going against the world trend as not only have we experienced out coldest September on record, October was our coldest for 11 years.
I have a feeling November will introduce us to enough heat to prepare us for the summer ahead as we are in for a warm to hot week, with 35C (95F) forecast for next Saturday. It's been just warm enough this past week not to have the aircon on heat but I feel before too long it will be doing its best to keep us cool.
Do you remember our old aircon gave up the ghost earlier this year and with the help of the insurance payout for fusion and dipping into our rather shallow pockets, we were able to have a new aircon unit installed. I know one should never tempt the fates, but to date it runs like a charm and is so quiet you'd hardly know it's on. Just don't let on to it that I said nice things about it will you.
Spoke to K on Sunday and she tells me her dizzy turns are now behind her which is good news but she says they are terribly busy at work so no rest for the wicked there. C is recovering and healing well after her 2 ops although still feeling tired. Not surprising as she had been in pain for some weeks prior to the gallstones becoming stuck and her concern for her girls should she be hospitalised would cause stress which in turn can be very tiring.
Phil had his six monthly visit with our GP last week and now we just await results of blood tests (when he gets around going to the path lab to have blood taken) but they are just routine tests so hopefully the results will prove he is 'not doing too badly for an old'un (that is Phil's usual answer when anyone asks how he is). Difficult to believe he will be 87 in just 32 days!! I said to him this morning that in 3 years he will be nearly 90 and he said don't tempt the fates but my explanation was that it is wonderful to be old enough to be able to say that.
This US election seems to be going from bad to worse and I can't help but think was skullduggery is working there. Politics is a dirty game and I feel of late we have been seeing the very worst of it. I will truly be so glad when it is over but then I guess we'll have to wait till the inauguration and then some.
I do hope your week has begun well for you and will continue on that way right up to the weekend.
