Yes I am still here! Yes we are fine! Just very hot and the internet has been playing up. I am blaming it on the heat, although I am not sure that it has anything to do with it…. We’ve had the net down completely for a while. Other times it might as well have been down since it was taking forever just to download an email… forget surfing the net.
Now it seems to be working fine again, so I will try for a quick update.
Summer has well and truly hit us. We’ve also still had some sandstorms which just make a huge mess everywhere:
We had to stop watering most of the grass because we ran out of water in our tank. We don’t have mains water here, just a big tank under the house that the city is supposed to fill up regularly. Sometimes, however, they seem to turn the tap off for no reason and then you run out of water and have to go buy some.
The first time this happened Cam got some guy down the road to help organize a water truck like this to come and fill up the tank:
Naturally all the people involved needed some money and we ended up paying way more than we should have. So the second time Cam found the place that supplies the water and organized it himself – it was much cheaper 🙂 We live very close by one of the spots where the trucks fill up with water. There is often a very long line of these trucks waiting to get refilled:
I have also been doing lots of sewing since it is too hot to do much outside, but I think this is enough for one post, so I’ll attempt a sewing update tomorrow 🙂 And I’ll be dropping by some blogs and catching up on your news too I hope! For now, it is bedtime…. catch you all later!
