Yay. It’s Friday. I hope you’ve all had a good week and are ready for the weekend ahead? Its forecast to be a steamy one here in Perth this weekend. Since the crazy weather we had last weekend the weather this week has been quite pleasant with cool nights returning […]
So, we made it. Perhaps Armageddon, a term often used in a generic sense to refer to any end of the world scenario might be pushing things a little, still this weekends weather events were a little obscure to say the least. Apparently this weekend, the Western Australian Bush was […]
I’ve not ‘blogged’ about the weather for ages so I’m sure for those of you freezing your ‘bits off’ in other countres around the world, will be delighted to read that here in Perth we’re set for a record breaking week of very high temperatures (remember it is summer after […]
So I thought I’d write a quick update today for those readers with fingers of the green variety. Just over two years ago I wrote an entry titled gardening in Australia in which I wrote about the challenges of the local soil and the sheer lack of experience I had […]
I know I can often be a little romantic about the wonderful weather we receive here in Western Australia. Perth is the sunniest capital city in the world at the end of the day so it’s often very easy to gloat when the weathers so damn nice all the time. […]
The welcoming country down under summons you to have a look at its great landscapes, rough mountains, lovely, warm climate and abundant way of life. Australia certainly has the most excellent elements to have a convenient and comfortable life. Perhaps these are the main reasons why it has continued to be a favorite holiday destination.
There are plenty of people wondering whether to emigrate to Australia. The lure of a new life with higher living standards and better prospects for your children has always been a big draw for new migrants. But as someone who decided successfully to emigrate to Australia from the UK, what really motivated me was to hear the stories of those who had gone before me.
Phew! What a scorcher. Yesterday saw the hottest day in Perth for nearly two years with the mercury hitting 42.9C . By 5am, the temperature at Champion Lakes near Armadale were already 30.4C – warmer than in Marble Bar, which is Australia’s hottest town and only 20.6C at that time. […]
So I’ve been getting updates on email and Facebook from friends back in the UK and the general consensus of opinion seems to be that the snow was great over Christmas however everyone is kind of getting ‘over it’ now. Looking on the BBC’s website today it looks like the […]
It’s been a while since I’ve complained about the weather and as I’m an Englishman wishing to retain at least a small portion of my Englishness I thought today was as good a day as any. Back in the UK, the English summer is in full swing. From what I’ve […]
As the British economy hits rock bottom, thousands of skilled workers are looking abroad to start up a brighter, more stable life in a different economy. Traditionally, Australia and New Zealand have been a favourite destination for British skilled migrants, but it seems now their economies are also feeling the […]
It was only a couple of weeks ago that I wrote about the recent hot weather we were experiencing here in Perth. We were hitting temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius and I have to say it was pretty warm. We were grateful for the air-con that’s for sure. Now […]
It’s only been a few days since I last blogged about the weather but thought todays forecast would be worth a mention. All I can say is ‘Hot!’ Last night was hot to. I had to get up during the night to put the air conditioning on and at 2am […]
So it’s started to get a little warm here in Western Australia and yesterday it hit 40 degrees Celsius which is the first time this summer that it’s hit this temperature. Today the forecast is a very warm 38 C and tomorrow (new years day) we’ll be hitting the 40’s […]
Well this is our third Christmas since we arrived down under and the family and I are really looking forward to a nice relaxing Christmas day. The Turkey has been taken out of the freezer and the next 24 hours should hopefully provide sufficient time for the thing to be […]
I can’t believe that it’s nearly spring! On the basis that the Aussie season is about 6 months ahead (or behind) the UK then the 1st of September here in Western Australia makes it the equivalent of March back in old Blighty. It’s been a pretty ‘avvo’ winter and it’s […]
