at the pool

Sunday, October 21, 2012

It's amazing how the weather can change in a week in this city. Last Friday I was complaining about the cold; this Saturday I whinged about the heat (it reached 33 degrees in Sydney!) until husband took me for a swim. It definitely felt like the first summer weekend. We spent our time puttering around the house replacing heavy duvets with lightweight blankets, eating ice cream and enjoying lazy afternoon siestas.

On Saturday, when the heat got to be too much we headed for an outdoor "pool" and rejoiced in the cool breeze and cooler water. It was exactly what I needed.

Tonight we'll watch Homeland, my new favourite show, and I'll eat a hot fudge peanut butter brownie sundae. Homemade, of course.


  1. A fudge peanut butter brownie sundae sounds to die for!! These pictures are lovely, meanwhile in the UK, everybody's got their best woolly hats on =) x

  2. Hooray! Beautiful being in the water is the best.

  3. I am loving that summer has finally come around. Unfortunately, summer also means storms and we have been hit quite heavy with some hail yesterday.

    I love homeland, so intense! and the sundae sounds amazing!

  4. Hot fudge, peanut butter brownie sundae... my mouth is a-watering! x

  5. This sounds like the most perfect weekend!! I'm a teensy bit jealous :P Rhi xx
