Noarlunga is the area where we live, we usually find that it is a couple of degrees cooler than the city. We haven't had to resort to using our airconditioning much. We've been quite comfortable with a fan while sleeping.

My vege garden is still surviving, I am watering once a day but checking in the afternoon and if anything is looking a bit sad then I throw a bit more water on.

It is too hot to cook anything hot so we've been having a lot of salads, although this weekend I'm thinking of making a vegetable curry, which is meant to be cooling (perhaps because eating curry makes you sweat) and a yoghurt dessert which I saw on tv yesterday afternoon. Will post the recipe tomorrow if I haven't melted away by then :)
