The Art of a Long Adelaide Heatwave

It is hot, very hot. So we go to the beach in the early evening because its too hot to go during the day. I make some summer art.

Then we sit in front of the air con play with make-up and take photos of ourselves.

Be careful - cabin fever/boredom can be dangerous - it isn't just limited to make up photos - other symptoms include but aren't limited to - letting your 7 year old paint your nails red, dancing stupidly around the living room naked, pulling silly faces, making silly faces out of our food,watching very bad tv, playing pranks on each other, laughing hysterically for no apparent reason and fighting over whose turn it is to get cold drinks from the fridge.

This outbreak is being monitored and should other symptoms arise you will be informed. As yet there is no available cure and could last as long as 2 weeks.


  1. What fun! Zoe will always remember these times.

  2. Ahh yes- we in Melbourne know exactly what you mean!Poor Adelaide! At least you have found a creative way to deal with it, but you still have my sympathies.

  3. Thanks April - it has its ups and downs! Thanks Reb - hows it been over in Melbourne? Heard you guys had blackouts as well! Looking forward to the cool change but its going to be 43 today aghhh!!
