Another HOT week ahead!

It will be another HOT week this week with temperature rising above the mid 38sC! Today's will will experience a shot of heat with a cool change later in the evening. So glad that it will be a fine day tomorrow when the school reopens.

The forecast said that most south east states will experience another week of intense heat next week when temperature is expected to rise above 40C again. I hope this will be the last for this summer as the heat is really intolerable! So glad we have air conditioning in the house!

Back to school 2014!

Gawd! The 6 weeks holiday just flew past us like a tornado! lol How I wished! Well, I'm happy to say it has finally ended and tomorrow my eldest will be back to school and my second kid will start her kinder the next day. So looking forward to some peace and quiet at home.

When the new school term starts, there will be lots of stuff to consider as the school will have lots of activities for the kids. Some are part of the curriculum and some we'll have to pay for them. Again, we are not sure if we should let our son to continue with his music lessons? He attended for 2 semesters last year and we have yet to see much of it. They do not hold any concerts or what so ever to demonstrate the students' progress.

I might want to pull him out and let him explore other courses. Maybe let him try guitar or concertina... we'll see how it goes since these lessons don't come cheap.

Hottest Day in Melbourne

Today is touted to be one of the hottest day in the history of Melbourne with temperature soar to above 40C! It is like walking into a furnace once I stepped out of the house!

As at 9am, the temperature has gone up to 35C and just before noon it has reached a massive 38C! Personally I have not experience anything hotter than 36C. So, it is like getting grilled outside! So, the is the REAL summer here!

I took the opportunity to wash all the sheets since everything dries up the moment I hung them out! :P
