I have been melting in this heatwave we have been experiencing here in Queensland. Come on summer you are not meant to be throwing these heat waves quite yet??. I have been literally lying on the floor trying to keep cool - well maybe not quite that far. More like standing in front of the fan and spraying myself with water. Anyone else do that? We don't have proper air conditioning in our house and are making do with a little portable one which manages to give some relief to one of the rooms in our house. When the temperature starts pushing 37 degrees or more it starts to struggle and it's hard to find somewhere bearable to sit in the afternoon. Oh and trying to breastfeed just makes things more miserable in this heat. I really hope the worst of summer has come and gone and it will stay mild and relatively comfortable. I think I am dreaming with that one.
A couple of weeks ago I shared each of these no bake desserts over on Facebook to help those like me who were experiencing this heat wave. Sometimes you want to do a bit of baking but the thought of turning the oven on in Summer on a sweltering day turns you off that thought quick smart. So I thought I would do a quick round up of some of my favourite things to make when I want to make something but don't want to turn the oven on. You might even find a few Christmas Dessert inspirations too?
Phew so there you go a few of my favourite no bake desserts to keep you going through summer even when you can't turn your oven on!!
On the home front I am slowly getting the hang of juggling two kids. I have to say we are a little more house bound at the moment with the constant feeding and naps involved with a newborn. I find that difficult as I was use to going out most days during the week, taking J.D to the park, going shopping or trawling the op shops for a bargain. Little Miss is doing well and will be a month old on friday! Eeek I cannot believe that. The weeks have certainly flown that's for sure. It has been a little bit of a hazy blur though and I am feeling guilty looking through the photos on the camera realizing I just haven't taken a lot of photos this time round. Poor kid. Taking photo's has not been on the top of my priority list. Oh well I better start now!!!
