Who turned up the heat?

Ok those that know me, know I hate the heat, but we are talking about 25-30 degrees not flippin 40!
Crikey this is NUTS where is the southerly?
Janine turned up at 9am this morning to run - run can you beleive that?  I must admit yesterday we ran the 8km block-  to day my aim was to make the corner (1.5km) but thankfully Janine decided it was to hot and we walked it after about running 200 meters!
As i sit here at 3.52pm the offical weater site says 38.9 - at home it reads 42!
Nigel and I went and lay on the floor in the bathroom as the tiles were the coldest place in the house - we even filled the cats bowl up with iced water and he laped it up!
Jamie decided the best place was in a cold bath with his togs on and the laptop blearing, I told him it was a scrapbooking moment!



So when he got out and I was talking to Jo - it was just too hot to resist and as he took the photo he told me it was definatly a scrapbooking moment!
Righto enough grumbling - I have had a busy week playing here are some photos of my efforts - all of these cards have started following someone else's card but usually ending up a little of my own - the one below was taken off this blog - she is a stunning designer and I love her work.
I really need a new camera as these photos are not the best but you get the idea!

Thats five cards in a week - go me lol!
OK time to head back to the cold bath!

Have a great week!

It is summer ya know today was just reminding us of that - not sure about runing in it though but it was good to see the sun - although I guess I was in Christchurch where it was only 36 not 40 - lol
Love the cold bath idea definitely needs to be scrapped

The temp in our roof yesterday was 42 - not that I would be going up there - and at mum and dad's it was 51! At least it all got Timaru on the news for a good reason (usually its for bad stuff).
Love the cards. keep up the good work!
