Temperatures rocketed today and despite it being school holidays and quiet the trains were predictably delayed possibly due to melting railway lines – one would have thought that they would have resolved this issue by now considering how hot it gets in Australia! However it does make a change to the English version which is leaves on the line! Anyway I decided to walk home from the station rather than wait in the heat with a 100 grumpy, hot sticky and hungry commuters – good exercise and all that. Stupid idea I now have a red face and and drinking a tone of cold water to rehydrate. I did the same thing that this bird is doing when I walked in the door ie stuck my head under an icy cold shower – bliss!
