We’ve had a long stretch of unseasonably high temperatures (30oC in April – what?!), and over the weekend low humidity and incredibly high winds. There were hazard reduction burns on Friday which blanketed the city in smoke and then a (now under control) bushfire on Saturday – so we have a house full of smoke (smells like a campfire is next to my desk) and dust, and all manner of niggling little ailments – dry eyes, itchy skin, respiratory issues and such.
Thankfully there’s a 60% chance of rain tomorrow, which hopefully we will most of this settle, because what with the sleeplessness and the ankle thing, I’ve enough ailments already thank-you-very-much! And I’d really like to be in relatively good health for the unexpectedly early holiday we’re taking in two weeks – more on that in another post.
