Too much heat

I managed to make myself very ill over the weekend.  It was a combination of trying to do too much, extreme heat and a virus.  Result, severe dehydration and I really knocked myself out .

On Saturday we took our Grand daughters and their parents to see "The Snail and the Whale" at QPAC's Cremone Theatre.

We had great seats, second row back from the stage and the girls got booster cushion cushions so they could see better.  But we didn't check just what was going on in the South bank Parklands or  the Galleries, Museum and Convention Centre.  Result, there was no parking, the roads were gridlocked and the heat was at 35 degrees C.  I ended up having to park a couple of K away from the theatre and walking back, I had dropped the others at the door.  Then I had to walk back, get the car and come back and pick them up.  (My son and his wife stayed in town for her birthday.)

We stayed overnight to look after the girls but they have no air-conditioning just fans and I couldn't get cool so I slept with the fan on me which really dried me out.  Next morning I couldn't stand up and the doctor had to be called who said, hospital.  Now that I have been re-hydrated  I don't feel too bad.  So I have been playing around with some water colours taken from what I saw at GOMA last week.  I do have to get back there again. I am going to use these as covers for by teaching booklets.

I’m going to have to be very careful in this heat.
