In the (non) summertime

We’re experiencing a bit of a heat wave at the moment - breaking records for both temperature and number of “man, it’s hot out there eh” comments between strangers. The weather is confusing the heck out of Effie who can’t quite figure out how it can be so hot and not officially be summertime. Ferg, meanwhile, continues to sport long sleeves and pants and often requests the “warm air conditioner” in the vehicle.

Hey, if you’re soon to pop out a baby and it is excessively hot out, why not have a series of fixer-upper parties? Nobody said Helen and co. were sane but we’re all very appreciative that they are allowing us to hang around and make water-breaking/ contraction jokes.

And here’s what I got up to, superior form and all, at the orifice the other day…

”We're not grey people
We're not dirty, we're not mean
We love everybody
but we do as we please
When the weather's fine
We go fishing or go swimming in the sea
We're always happy
Life's for living, yeah, that's our philosophy”

Oh, I loved that glimpse of Helen's big belly! That's so nice that you guys all got together to help them fix up the house a bit. Gillian...that was the best baby shower gift I can think of!

And Craig, your form is indeed impressive. And you even have on matching shoes and everything. It all looks positively civilized!
