Too Darn Hot

I have really been struggling with the heat lately.  Cannot sleep at night and find myself “Sweating My Ass Off” all the time.  It is just too darn hot! 

We have been having a heatwave in Joburg for a few weeks now and it is really taking its toll on me.  Son no 2 will reply to this blog stating that the heat here is nothing like they have in Dubai and I should be grateful.  However – they have Air-Conditioning there – in all their homes, in all their places of work and in all their shopping centres.  All I have here at home is a lousy fan which Hubby does not like being switched on because it makes him cough!

Hubby is in Bahrain at the moment – flew out last night and will be back tomorrow morning.  He had to do a presentation there today for a possible new project.  So I have taken advantage and done some general housekeeping in the office today.  Actually did my filing which I have not touched since March.  Maid washed the curtains and the windows in the office so I got out the old rags and wiped down all the PC’s / keyboards etc etc.  Also popped out to Vodacom to buy a new MICRO-SIM for my iPad.

I usually just tether my iPad to my iPhone as my iPad is usually on my wireless network.  But we have not had ADSL (or phone lines) for almost a week now – there was a cable break in our area and there is nothing one can do about it except to wait for them to reconnect it all again.  We have all been very frustrated over the last few days without being able to communicate with anyone – have not skyped with Son no 2 for a week now either.  Kids frustrated because they have not been able to play online games and doing business is challenging without ADSL or phone lines.

ADSL finally reconnected this afternoon (Yipee!), Hubby back tomorrow, so life will quickly get back to normal.
