I haven't been posting more than comments because it's been too hot to switch my computer on. My laptop is "built for extreme gaming" and therefore has two heavy-duty fans, one for the CPU and the other for the GPU. Unsurprisingly, it belches out A LOT of heat. Given that it's been over 30 degrees C during the day and even over 25 at night, I haven't had much desire to add to the house temperature. I've been playing Dragon Quest VII on my 3DS instead of Elder Scrolls Online on my computer, and just checking in with my Guild for 30-60 minutes at 3 am when it's as cool as it's going to get.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I shall be 41, which is quite shocking. I don't FEEL like I should be middle-aged yet - even if extended life expectancy means we now have "early" middle-age from 40 to 55 and "late" middle-age from 56 to 70 or 75, and you don't become "elderly" until you're properly decrepit. One of my birthday presents will be a visiting Grant, which means I am now attempting to do battle with entropy such that there will be enough space in the house for him to stay.

* So much laundry to do today. Richard has a bit of a phobia of his favourite t-shirts losing their patterns, so he has a habit of "airing" them out to wear again. Thus today I discovered that my dear husband had tucked away 2-3 machine loads of t-shirts, hoodies and pairs of trousers! And most of them smell of either armpits/crotch, or smoke!

* Need to empty and refill the dishwasher. Because we tend to use it as an extra cupboard until such time as it's more than half-empty and/or we can't move for dirty plates. Richard works full-time and I have chronic fatigue, don't judge :P

* Finish emptying my suitcase and put it away. Yes, it still has contents from when I visited Grant in April. Don't judge me.

* Strip the bed, air it out, and replace with clean sheets.

* Since it is too hot for all three of us to pile into bed together, clear a space on the floor big enough for a second mattress. The boys will take it in turns to sleep in the bed with me, apparently.

And it's so hot that I feel exhausted and have to rest after doing one job. Also I have my period, which always makes me more achey and exhausted anyway. Yay.

[waits til morning, then...]

Gosh, that puts me in late middle age. EARLY late middle age, I say. Aging is very very weird, but I'm sure you already know that. I still have one suitcase not unpacked from Christmas and a duffel bag not unpacked from last month, so go you.
