So hot it's not funny

To start with let me say I woke up as tired as when I finally got to sleep at 1am this morning.
Last night and the past 2 nights have been 24-25C and the days have been 38-39C.
Doesn't feel very nice waking up in a lather of sweat and knowing its only going to get worse as the day goes to 42c today with not an ounce of breeze.
I must say we are lucky so far that we haven't had any fires around Gunnedah yet, further south in the Hunter Valley, Sydney The South coast of NSW and Victoria are copping it bad with fires.
In Victoria 30 homes were lost in 1 small town. In the Singleton area(where we lived before moving here) over 1,000 hectres of bushland has burned so far and they are thinking the fire might head toward town.,
Dad lives in the Hunter Valley in the wine growing area,I was getting a bit concerned about fires as they usually get a lot of fires every year, so rang him and no fires so far.

Been to Dad's

Well I finally got to go to dad's this Thursday.
Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, might be all the love and support I get from home and my cyber family at Artecy_stitchers group.
Went and paid for Mum's funeral and then went into town with dad, I even got him to buy a new pair of sunglasses as he needs to wear them all the time when he is outside now, since he had his surgeries on both eyes. He has been talking about getting a new entertainment unit for his lounge room as the TV he has now is too big for his old unit, went to a store in town and he got a really nice one for 300.00. Wish I had known about them when I got my new one, LOL practically the same as mine and I paid 1,400.00.
The weather here has been unbearable, just on 3 weeks now of 35-40c in the day and nights of 23-25c. Needless to say it is too hot to get a good night sleep, even the aircons are labouring to work properly. Mal has gone to da a course for work this week and as he will be doing it only 1/2 hour drive from dad's he is staying at dad's place. Mal will help dad to put together his entertainment unit .
Kori is busy writing a novel(her first attempt) and it is coming along.She has only got 6 more assignments left to do for her school certificate which she is doing through distance learning via tafe in Sydney.
