It's awful here today - they're predicting a top of 38C. And there's a nasty hot north wind blowing grit around. So I am hibernating.

The council's homecare service has truly imploded: I got yet another random today. She arrived earlier than they're supposed to, and I hadn't been asked or forewarned. I had assumed I'd have no homecare as the heatwave rule would kick in, although again, they're supposed to ring me to let me know. But she turned up assuming that I'd agreed to a half hour of priority stuff, which they will do on occasion.

And since she was there, and I was now out of bed and it wasn't too early, I went with it. So that's fine, but she and I were a bit surprised at the lack of communication. Clearly, the office people are coping less and less and letting things fall by the wayside.

Whoever chose this new organisational structure should be made to be a care recipient - or a worker - for a few weeks, just to hammer home the implications. (And yes, I also believe that the admin. and finance staff in hospitals should have to eat the same food at the patients.)

~~~

Presently drinking tea and vegetating, but hoping to get it together to get a few things done. Or rather, everything.

But everything is a lot of stuff for one day so I might just settle for a spot of sewing. I badly need to make some adjustments on some much needed new brassieres.

Launching myself off the couch any minute now...

*whimpers* I have to go out in it to see my gynie at 4.15, meant to be 39 here then. GAHHHH.

On the happy front, the BOM this this will be the last hot day. So that's a win, yes?

When it's that hot is it also humid/muggy? Because I would die if it is. 38-39 sound like our summer temps!

Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. Yesterday, when I wrote that, it was incredibly humid.
