Australia - you've got to love it. Flooding one day, bloody hot the next. Actually at the moment in some places is is hot and flooding at the same time. What a country of contradictions!
It is on these very hot days that I thank my excellent fortune to be the beneficiary of airconditioning. I get to work in it all day and sleep in it at night. Canberra is better known for our freezing winters, but we also get stinking hot summers, so the ability to be comfortable on days like today when the mercury is in the high 30's is a true privilege.
It is just another of the ways that I realise I live such an easy, advantaged life and I'm determined to appreciate it, not just take these luxuries for granted.
