    Went to Lake Tennyson and had a swim, wind came up this afternoon though and it clouded over. Was starting to rain when we left, typical high country can't trust the weather. Been very hot here last week though and next few days are supposed to be too.

    Had a fan we didn't use as the heat pump was doing wonders (had purchased last summer before moving into an apartment), so we decided to sell it and I chucked it up on Trade Me.

    It was sold within a minute.

    SWMBO was in Mitre10 today. Sold out of fans. Been hot here as well. Fly screens on the doors works pretty good if there is even a slight breeze.

    Yesterday was 32 inside with all the doors wide open and a slight breeze. It was 30 outside. It's been a hot one in Auckland. They have been predicting 29 for Auckland for the past few days.

    I am on my own, unable to drive, so I am stuck inside as SWMBO is at work, so I can't go for a swim. At least it is not as hot today.

    Hmm, I was in there last week and they had these no base, round desk fans, the large sort. $215 apparently.

    I bought a 40cm desk fan off trademe (shop), that's number 5 now. One in each bedroom, one lounge and this for dining....

    I've been keeping the curtains closed as the sun tracks around the house. Really helps.
