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 our 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 - no blasted rain like back in Leeds!!

September 30 - 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. It's Paradise!

October 10 - 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 we expected.

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

October 20 - 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 ****. I've learned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.

October 25 - This wind is a bastard. It feels like a giant 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 bloody Perth ......The wife & the kids are complaining.

October 30 - The temperature's up around 40 and the parts still haven't arrived for the air conditioner. House is an oven so we've all been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 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 ****ing air-conditioner fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 35. Stupid thieving repairman.

November 8 - If one more smart bastard says 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm going to ****ing throttle him. ****ing heat! By the time I get to work, the car radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking bloody wet and I smell like baked cat. This place is the end of the Earth.

November 9 - Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in my car. I thought my arse was on fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and off my arse. Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried bum and baked cat.

November 10 -- The Weather report might as well be a ****ing recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and ****ing sunny. It never ****ing changes! It's been too hot to do anything for 2 ****ing months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. ****!

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

November 20 - Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 ****in' 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 wanted to shove the ****ing car up his ****ing bum. Anyway, had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid sod. ****ing Karratha! What kind of sick, demented ****ing idiot would want to live here!

December 1 - WHAT!!!! The FIRST day of Summer!!!! You are ****ing kidding me!

Having lived in WA Barry I can tell you a fair depiction of life in Nth WA, too hot for me only lasted 18mths and moved back east amazing the difference 3500km makes weather wise.
we went west 18/1/'85 middle of summer across the famous Nullarbor plain it was 54c inside our Datsun Stanza car.
