I'm sure everyone has blogged about this already, but us Victorians are currently experiencing the hottest 3 day period on record. The temperature this week has been hovering around 43/44 degrees (that's around 111 F for you US folk), making next weeks run of 35 degree days seem like a cool breeze.
Our living room currently resembles a cosy bedsitter apartment with our queen bed mattress occupying the space beneath the air-con (much as I hate to use it). At the studio we've given up trying to work (no chance at all printing in this heat) and I'm feeling lucky I can do admin stuff on my laptop at home.
I feel bad for neglecting my blog of late. I feel like I can't post without pictures, and I haven't had the head space to take any.
However I can take the opportunity to blog about Pip's lovely book (pre-order here), which I'm excited to be a part of:
