Baby, it’s cold inside

The most exciting thing – we had evaporative air conditioning installed yesterday, and I am so ready for the next few days of heat! I don’t think I have ever been so excited by a 33°c forecast.
The timing of this installation is pretty good really, as for the last few days Amelia and I have had a cold – nothing really major, just the sniffles and so on, but the most annoying symptom of this particular cold is extreme grumpiness. And I mean extreme. It’s the teeth grinding, eye rolling, loud shouting kind of grumpiness which doesn’t bode well for family harmony. The advent activities have almost completely fallen away, mostly because by the time 5pm rocks around we are all ready to hurl something through a window and the idea of “everyone make a christmas ornament for the tree!” is possibly the most unappealing idea EVER suggested. At least the heat won’t make it even worse tomorrow.

So poor old Big-P has been putting up with 3 year old and 33 year old temper tantrums as we continually blow our noses and cough noisily and then shout and slam doors. Very nice. Happy birthday Big-P. We really do love you, we’re just too grumpy to say it to your face right now. ok? OK?
