Default Diary of a pommie in western australia

August 31 - Just got transferred with work from Leeds UK to our new home in Karratha , Western Australia . Now this is a town that knows how to live! Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings. I watched the sunset from a deckchair by the pool yesterday. It was beautiful. I've finally found my new home. I love it here.

September 13 - Really heating up now. It got to 31 today. No problem though. Living in air-conditioned home, driving air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this. I'm turning into a sun-worshipper.

September 30th - Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for me. Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

October 10th - The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's windy though. Keeps the flies off a bit. Acclimatizing is taking longer than I expected.

October 15th - Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed three days of work. What a dumb thing to do! Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

October 20th - Didn't notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car before I left for work this morning. By the time I got back to the car after work, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stuck to the upholstery. The car now smells like Whiskettes and cat shit. I've earned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.

October 25 - This wind is a bastard. It feels like a giant ****in' blow dryer. And it's hot as hell! The home air conditioner is on the blink and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to order parts from ****in' Perth ....

October 30th - The temperature's up around 40 and the parts still haven't arrived for the f*ckin' aircon. Been sleeping outside by the pool for three nights now. Bloody $600,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why the hell did I ever come here?

November 4 - Finally got the ol' aircon fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 30. Stupid repairman.

November 8 - If one more smart arse says 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm going to f*ckin' throttle him. F*ckin' heat! By the time I get to work, the car's radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking f*ckin' wet and I smell like baked cat!

November 9 - Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in the ol' car. I thought my f*ckin' arse was on fire. I lost two layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and my f*ckin' arse. Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried arse and baked cat!

November 10 - Weather report! It might as well be a f*ckin' recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and f*ckin' sunny! It's been too hot to do anything for two f*ckin' months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.

November 15 - Doesn't it ever rain in this damn f*ckin' place? Water restrictions will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up and blow into the f*ckin' pool. The only things that thrive in this hell-hole are the f*ckin' flies. You don't dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of the f*ckers!

November 20th - Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 f*ckin' degrees today. Now the air conditioner's gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it and said, 'Hot enough for you today?' I had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid f*cker. F*ckin' Karratha! What kind of sick, demented f*ckin' idiot would want to live here!

December 1 -


The first day of Summer!!!!

You are f*ckin' kidding!
