It is insanely hot here at the moment, yesterday was 41°C (106°F for you Americans) and today will reach a top of 43°C (109°F)!!! As we have no airconditioning, it was 34°C (93°F) inside the house, and it didn't really cool down at all overnight. We have two more days of weather in the 40s, then it should start becoming more reasonable. I personally loathe hot weather, so I've had a terrible time.
Yesterday was my day off, so the Wolf and I just sat on the sofa in our underwear and watched most of season one of Mad Men. For those who don't know, Mad Men is a fantastic new tv series from Showtime set in New York in 1960. It follows the lives of a group of executives who work in an advertising agency on Madison Avenue. The plot and acting are great, and the costumes are really authentic. I particularly like Betty's candy-striped dresses with their tulle petticoats (although in the picture below she's wearing a floral number), and Joan's (centre) sexy office wear.
