Oh. Tomorrow's weather forecast is now up to 43C.

I think this might take it into the league of "not healthy for me to venture out".

When it was only for 41, I was still planning to taxi to my dentist, then walk ?100 metres down the road to see Newboi!, then taxi home from the front entrance. Figured it was tricky but doable with care, given I'd be in aircon most of the time.

But I feel that 43C is crossing a line. It's not *that* much warmer but...

ETA: No care or shopping this week because of the heat. Apparently they can do a shopping run prior to 9AM, so if my regular, eagle eyed carer is on, I'll get the essentials. It looks like I'm indoors until Saturday when it gets cooler. While I suspect on some level this will be good for me, I'm kind of cranky about it. Maybe I can take myself out for a trundle at nighttime.

oh yes there will so be cranky this week. I wonder if being aware of that will make it better or worse.

I wish I didn't have to venture out, except that work will pay for the aircon! I should put a bath in for the bird.

I have filled my backyard one and it has already proven popular.

I have a hospital visit on Wednesday and I'm planning all my messages round it. It'll be the only time I'm out before Saturday, and Saturday will be early, early, early. I did my shopping early, though, being suspicious of heat. So you have all my sympathies and yes, you should avoid going out if you possibly can. (I only regret I can't avoid Wednesday.)

I suspect my medical people would think I should stay home...hopefully that will include my dentist.

Tomorrow night, very late, I shall go and post a letter.

Yeah, I was contemplating going out tomorrow, but I think I'll be hiding out inside trying to stay cool.

If your air conditioner isn't cutting the mustard, you are welcome to flake out here.

That would involve stepping outside.

That's brutal heat and I'd be staying inside in my aircon until nightfall. We do get that kind of temps here in summer and nobody goes out before 10 PM...

Oh boy. I wish Australia would adapt and do the same. I'm planning to head out at about that time to post a letter.
