Techniques for Summer

I used to say I didn't like any weather where the temperature was higher than my age. As i get a bit older it doesn't apply so much, but even 26 would be better than the 40 degree Saturday we had to sit through.
We have learned a few techniques for surviving 40 degrees in our brick shoebox without air conditioning, and here's some we experienced:

1. Go for a drive. The house doesn't have air con, but the car does.
2. Go to a shopping centre. Free air con and you can pick up lunch there too.
3. Go see a movie. Nice and chilly.
And my personal favourite
4. Go sit in the ocean.

Our Saturday went something like 1, 2, 3, 1, 1, 4, 1

Doesn't help the 36 degree evening though. You can't sleep in the ocean. Well, i mean, you probably could, but who knows where you'd end up.

So what about you guys? Any other suggestions for Summer Avoidance?

Also, this is the third week with no posts from anyone else.. let us Adelaide people know what's been going on in Bendigo and the UK. I expect a new post for each of you, or there'll be trouble.


  1. ROFL I beat you :P
    I like your summer avoidance techniques, wish we had an ocean... but we do have seasons tickets to the pool, so that will have to do. We spent all of yesterday afternoon there, Trinity even had her nap there! The shopping centre one is another popular one, and one Adam participates in (unlike the pool) Well, better go again, as you will see from MY post, I have housework waiting. Bye-eye :)

  2. Oh, I also want to say that at my "advanced" age I can say I don't like weather that is higher than my age but anything up to 33 is ok by me... for Adam it would be anything over half his age :P I think the relentless heat and lack of rain is worse (but it did rain here last night!)
