It was 43°C here today. That's 109.4°F, if you prefer. Today, there's a possibility it may reach 45°C. Or 113°F. Now, I quite like the heat but even I think that's pushing it.

On top of this, I was greeted by a strange, fan-like sound when I arrived home yesterday. Turns out the central heating system had decided to blow air through the vents. Not hot air, thankfully, but it was doing this in defiance of the fact that it was turned off. And all of my glares and threats had absolutely no impact on it, the cursed thing.

Turning it off at the mains worked somewhat better, even though it meant we were apparently risking the overheat switching on (according to the instruction book). Which, by the way, is the stupidest instruction book ever. Nowhere does it say, Oh, hey, if your fan comes on randomly, it's because of this or even OMG, your fan came on even though it's switched off?? PANIC! YOU'RE ALL GOING TO DIE! OF CENTRAL HEATING.

At least the air-con behaves more maturely.

And in a rampant break with tradition, I actually posted my vlog on a Wednesday instead of a Thursday. This is what returning to work does to you: it completely screws up your schedule. And here it is...

I'm deadly serious about the questions, too. Please ask me some! Ask me questions about writing so I can answer them in future blogs! Ask me hundreds! You can either do it there or here, I don't mind. I would love it above all things to be able to talk about writing and maybe to help some people out along the way.

I hope you all enjoy it (even though it's filmed from a really horrible angle... :|).

And now, I am off to work.
