For most of this year, which is now into its second month would you believe, here in Hawkes Bay we have been having temperatures into the late 20s and 30s. Yesterday it was a fairly moderate 27℃ and I was a very happy bunny. So imagine my discombobulation (gosh the spillchucker allowed that) when today the rain has set in overnight (cancelling our doubles croquet match this morning) and the temperature is, wait for it.....12℃ (yes, really, that's 53℉). Last night I went to bed with the air conditioning taking the edge off the heat of the night and this evening I could justify putting it on to provide some warmth.
This morning I woke up to an email from Pat on Lewis. The central heating in my house on Lewis is playing up yet again. Mind you with winds gusting up to 127 mph a short while ago and more storms forecast anything could happen. This map shows that the heaviest seas on the planet will be hitting the Outer Hebrides in the next day or two.
Do you ever get misled by the constant phone and cellphone beeps and rings from the television or is it just me who seems constantly to be looking to see what's happening when the television is on? Today someone in the background of a new programme had a phone which beeped and I spent a few puzzled moments before I realised that it wasn't my phone.
The highlight of my day was solving the start of the hardest Codecracker that I've ever done. I've been at it since last Wednesday. Pitiful it's been.
