Welcome to February! In Australia, February is our back to school month. The new school year kicks off after the summer break from Christmas until the end of January. This week my teens are back to school and I’m back to work at my day job.
We’re also hoping for a break in the weather. Australia has sweltered through January – our hottest month on record (since temperatures started being recorded in 1910). The mean temperature exceeded 30C (86F) and where I live (Canberra) we had four days in a row with temperatures exceeding 40C (104F). It’s hard for me to imagine the weather many of you are experiencing in North America with the polar vortex and temperatures colder than Antarctica!
At Inspy Romance, we’re celebrating our 5th Birthday in February with our annual Birthday Bash giveaway launching on Valentine’s Day. Stay tuned for more information on our Birthday Bash in the Sunday Edition next weekend.
