    I put a thermometer in the sun outside our shop at 2.00pm. Went from 31C (inside temp) to 41C outside in less than a minute! Phew!

    Spare a thought for those of us freeezing our 'bits' off in Uk ... we've had night time temps of -12, day temps of -5, & frozen sea! in the 'warm' south west!
    Good to hear our dreams being lived by you all over there, hope it leads to a good summer for us too!

    Was certainly another hot, balmy which doensn't make for a good nights sleep!

    The good news is that it is much cooler today in Christchurch - although it distinctly looks as though there may be rain on the way.

    The daylight is so unusually long till 9pm here! We're used to dark sky at 7pm back in S'pore. The toddlers are so confused they can't tell it's just afternoon nap or night sleep when we put them to bed and when they woke up...
