Wow, two entries on the same day! Just thought I'd better check in & make sure I didn't put anything too terrible in my last entry considering the time it was done!
Anyway, IT'S THE WEEKEND!!! Time to relax & catch up on some much needed work before we start work on Monday! Unfortunately being a dirty stop-out last night meant I only got 5 hours sleep as I'd decided to go running this morning. How stupid am I? Well, it was a great to get out & stretch my legs - although the ranger who showed me a route & told me it was flat has got some explaining to do! As I climbed up into the hills above the town my lungs were definitely not impressed! But it was a great view & there was no-one else around apart from some very exotic looking birds (the feathered kind) which i have yet to identify. The sun was well up by this point (8am), temp approx 25 degrees. It's currently topping 30 degrees & we've spent all day lolling by the pool. I think it's going to be a real shock to the system when we're out working in this heat - although it is a very dry heat. We're in the middle of a drought here currently so having to watch the water!
Well, I'll catch up again soon & post some photos when I've figured out how it all works....... Take Care! xxx
