Think cold thoughts…

{mosimage}We’re still baking. But there’s an end in sight now. The BOM is forecasting 30 for Saturday, and it’s slowly getting cooler (well, less hot) over the week up till then. We were supposed to be having a birthday BBQ today, but because of the weather, we decided to postpone it a week. So next Sunday hopefully it’ll be a lot cooler and we can hang around outside. Highest temperature this week: 45.6C (114.1F).

We’ve had another poo and a wee on the potty in the last couple days. Slowly getting there.

My pumpkins are all dead. My strawberry plant isn’t looking good either. And the cucumber plant is partially wilted & dried out. Everything else is still looking okay though, probably because it’s all (except the capsicum) planted in the ground. If the strawberry plant dies, I think I’ll be transplanting the capsicum into its spot. Oh, and it has one tiny capsicum growing on it! Yay.

Oh, and this is the THIRD keyboard I’ve used this week. The first one that I’d been using for months with no issues decided the other day that it didn’t want me to have working number keys, including a couple keys I had in my password, so Darrin found a spare in his piles of computer stuff. This was actually one I’d had a couple years ago and always worked well for me. And then yesterday that one started working funny with all the directional keys – arrows, page up/down, home/end, etc. And a couple hours later the space bar and two adjoining keys stopped working as well. I suspect this had something to do with a naked toddler standing on my chair, playing with my keyboard, and a mysterious puddle under my chair…. So once again, I couldn’t type my password. I had to get Darrin to kill my screen saver remotely so I could get back into my machine, and then turn off screen locking. So this morning as soon as the shops opened, I went to Big W and bought a brand spanking new USB keyboard, and it works beautifully. But do you think I can remember any of the stuff I wanted to post on message boards now that I have a properly working keyboard again? Of course not.

Baby’s movements are getting a lot stronger, and I think I can almost feel them from the outside. He/she was awake & pretty active this morning after I went to the toilet at 6 am. Should be soon anyway and I’ll be able to put Caleb’s hand on my belly and tell him “that’s the baby kicking.” No bladder dancing yet though, for which I’m thankful. But it’ll happen eventually.

Okay, we’ve all had our lunch, now it’s time to get the ice cream out of the freezer. Mmmmmm….
