It’s been a pretty warm weekend here with temperatures here currently 32C (90F) and showing no signs of cooling down. I’ve been out and about by the coast to try and keep cool and have shared some of the photos below. The worst thing about warm weather is that we don’t have central air conditioning (our house is old and open plan). We have a portable a/c unit for the bedroom and the spare room but the temperature where I’m typing this is 30C (87F) and I’m trying hard not to sweat.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while you’ll know that I have a hamster (Sergeant Squeaks) that I bought as an impulse buy about 21 months ago. Yesterday I noticed that she was struggling to breathe and not eating any of her food so I took her to the vet first thing this morning. They aren’t sure what is causing it; small animals are notoriously hard to diagnose and they’d have to put her to sleep to do an x-ray which might kill her given that she’s weak. The vet gave us a choice of the x-ray or antibiotics in the hope that the breathing issue is pneumonia and not something more untreatable. We chose to try antibiotics so I’m hoping it will be that and she’ll pull through. Wish her luck!
How was your weekend?
