I'm up for that. It won't be so humid though and only one day. All good.

My open window at night is working, may need to use the aircon tomorrow night if it is still too warm (humid).

Thanks. Just arrived back, the walk home was a bit of a treck, but almost 10,000 steps all up.

Enjoy your sleep in the fresh air.

I don't think A/C really helps in the long term, 1st year used it a hand full of times, 2nd year a few more as we weren't trying to brave it, if we had it in the bedrooms we'd of had it on (the A/C). But if we have the doors and windows opened as soon as the kids get in (with screens) and ceiling fans on full speed when sleeping it makes even the hottest nights more bearable than a 20DegC UK night

The worst thing is having a cool downstairs because you've had the A/C on and then walking up into what feels like an oven to sleep.

I've done a walk to coles in Woolloongabba which was very sweaty this afternoon and we're off to QPAC for dress rehearsal for La Sylphide so that'll be well over 10,000 for today. May have to have a cold beverage while I'm there which might undo some of the good of walking lol.
