    Ooh that would floor me, we had that last summer for the first time since 1976. That year I was working as an au pair and painting cottages and looking after kids and horses, this time I was completely gubbed by it.
    In Auchtermuchty we have been -3 but the days have had blue skies and sunny rather than the awful brown sky we’ve had for weeks so happy with that.
    Don’t know if you’d like Canada, my friend lived in Toronto for 25 years and he had summers like yours and winters of about -35 with wind chill. I suppose you dress accordingly when you can’t do anything about the heat

    At the time of the Cuban missile crisis, when another world war seemed inevitable, we almost moved our family to Australia.
    We weren't thinking of the climate, but the idea of big hairy spiders in the loo was a deciding factor. Dennis.

    I was born in Sydney and lived there until I moved to the UK 20 years ago. I like hot weather which makes you wonder why I would move to the UK...We didn't have a/c and it never bothered me. I can tell you from direct experience, I would MUCH rather have a broken down a/c during a hot Australian summer than to have a broken down boiler in the middle of a cold British winter. It's no contest as far as I'm concerned.

    I plan to move back to Australia hopefully within the next few years and if I do, Brisbane is where I'd like to live.
