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 and day time temps in […]
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 the hottest place on earth. […]
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 all). Perth is bracing itself […]
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. Yesterday it would seem was […]
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 severity of the bitterly cold […]
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 heard from the friends and […]
Your reasons for choosing to emigrate to Australia will be varied. For us, as adults we saw the local parks and playing fields we used to play on as kids, turned into graffiti and syringe strewn scrap heaps. Australia presented us with the opportunity for a better life for our kids. The affordable housing, wide […]
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 pop a few thousand miles […]
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 the temperature was 86 degrees […]

In an effort to enjoy some fresh air whilst trying to remain cool in the 33 degrees heat, I decided to walk down to the Swan River this lunchtime to enjoy a sandwich. One of the great things about working in a CBD the size of Perth’s is that the river is less than a […]
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 again. Nothing for a bloke […]
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 defrosted.We’ve also got some huge […]
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 felt a little colder then […]
I’ve written before about the wonders of the Weather here in Western Australia and being someone of British decent, talking about the weather is always going to be a popular past time for me :) Whilst standing in the coffee queue at work early this week however, the topic of conversation wasn’t the more traditional […]
G’day all. Work wise, life down under has been ridiculously busy recently which is why Getting Down Under hasn’t been getting much love and attention recently. Still, – I know there’s a small pocket of you who probably wonder what we’ve been up to when you wake each morning (not) so to appease these small […]
Autumn in Australia and the second time we’ve experienced the autumn season since moving here I really have no idea where the time has gone. I can’t believe that we’ve got back around to autumn so soon. Last year I made the revelation that here in Australia, the leaves fall off the tree’s during autumn. […]
