summer is here.

I wish I could be happy about it. But to be honest, I just don't like summer. I love the idea of summer, but in reality it's too hot for the beach, indoors is full of mosquitos - as hard as we try to keep them out - our studio has been converted into a sauna and there are just too many people.

If it weren't so awful for the environment and my wallet, I would get air conditioning and put fake snow on my windows and not leave the house for the whole of summer, wrapped in a blanket and drinking hot chocolate like it's vodka*, laughing hysterically at all those foolish enough to brave the sweltering Queensland tourist circus.

* I mean water. Water's the one I drink a lot of.


  1. Today December 1st is our nineth wedding anniversary and nine years ago we travelled from Portugal to summer in Australia. It was a marvellous honeymoon!

  2. Hi Andreia, how wonderful that you chose Australia for your honeymoon. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! It is only these past few years that I've become intolerable of the summer, I don't remember it ever being so bad. I think it may just be me though, I don't know anyone else who whines like I do at the heat!
