I'd love to be out in the streets singing hot, hot, hot, but it is so humid out and I can barely move! It's about 38 Degrees and this hot wind is blowing and it's just you guessed it - hot!
Surprisingly enough the shop has been busy all day; people buying Christmas presents and sensibly heading to air conditioned shopping centres!
On the way from buying a rice paper roll for lunch; I stopped into the pet shop and all the animals were panting in their sleep or had that glassy eyed stare - I'm worried about Hemingway..
A friend of mine came to visit with a cup of coffee earlier and chatted to the customer who bought more and more while talking!
I bought some books off my sis's book club and a few of them have already been sold off the window display and I have that glassy eyed look too while I mooch around the shop; I have no idea how to cool down but have tried alternating between hot/cold beverages...
I am nearly finished the book I have been reading over three days; it's taken me really long, what with doing work, taking photos, arranging displays, chatting with friends, sweeping, looking after puppies and attempting to stay cool!
