What is with this weather?? Nearly late December and I'm still carting a brolly around in the car! Not knowing whether to make outside plans because it might rain  wacko.gif  We get a couple of warm days then the clouds & the humidity roll in again  cry1.gif   Slightly fluffy vent! We were supposed to have an end-of-school afternoon tea at the park today only to wake up and it looks like rain again!

Looks like you are getting your wish ....lots of nice weather this week  biggrin.gif

I only wish it wasn't forcast 38 for Xmas day I was hoping for a nice 28 or 30 !!!! mainly because even with Air-con our house gets warm with everyone coming and going and leavign doors open. My MIL decided to complain last time ....probably because she is the only one who doesn't go swimming LOL!!!

Anyway the weather is looking good !!!!!

Im actually hoping it hold off till Jan, my 73 year old mum is visiting from Vic & she doesn't do well in the heat....

But I also hope the humidity goes back to where it came from - if I wanted that I'd move to Qld!

I'm loving the fact it is 38 on Xmas day! It helps the kids spend most of the day in the pool and with the temp, I may even get my own togs on! biggrin.gif

Much prefer a hot Christmas than a windy, cool one original.gif

I just wish the weather for the 23rd and the 25th was swapped around - the 23rd is forecast to be cooler when we are having a pool day at Mums, and Christmas day is going to be hot when we are out at my BILs house with no pool.
