G'day everyone thought I'd check in on this stinking hot day down under!! Most of Australia is in the grips of a heatwave. My partner and I spent the day with friends down at Lake Rosebery on the west coast of tassie in 37C (98.6 Fahrenheit) heat. It was certainly the place to be sitting on a camp chair in waist deep water drinking a couple of cold beers watching our friends kids skiing!
A couple of things struck me today.
1. Today was the first time I've woken up and not even thought of having a smoke!
2. On the hour and a half drive it was so nice to not have the car stinking of smoke. Normally my partner and I would smoke 5 or 6 on the way! (Yep he's still smoke free too!)
3. Normally at 'the lake' my man and I would have to segregate ourselves often to go and have a chuff as he and I were the only smokers amongst all our friends. Today we were able to just sit and relax and end enjoy our time with our friends plus the wild tassie wilderness scenery.
Anyway I'm going to sign off. Hope you are all well and happy and keeping warm. We have another few days of very very hot weather ahead so I'll be trying to keep cool as best I can
Cheers Mardi xxx
