Hot Autumn

We put ceiling fans in all three bedrooms, and they are generally adequate at night to cool us when the weather is warm and if the place is already cool from the air con. We sleep well without feeling hot. Just a nice gentle falling breeze from the fans.

'Sweetheart, at 9.14 it is 31 degrees outside. Do we have mutual agreement that we will leave the air con on and keep our bedroom doors open.'

'Yep'.

  1. 31 through the night is pretty hard to take, thank heavens it doesn't happen often.. ceiling fans are usually more than adequate! Hmmm! I'm just trying to remember if we had ceiling fans when we lived in Africa.. we must have had surely ☺

    1. Grace, of course you would have, with a lad outside operating them with a string tied to his toe.

    1. Charlie, I am no-suffer person. I don't like to be hot at all, ever. It has just cooled this afternoon, but not for long.

  3. I'd love a ceiling fan! I make do with a pedestal fan aimed at the bed, it runs on medium all night unless the temp stays high, then it runs on high all night.
    There's a faint sound echo as the air passes furniture and bounces off walls, that sounds like Angel meowing outside wanting to come in.

    1. River, if you are ever tempted to have one installed, don't get a cheap one. Are you sure it is not Angel meowing to get in?

  4. Now that was hot at that time of night. I personally don't care for any type of fan or A/C on in my bedroom at night when I'm alseep but it would have been on if that during the night down here.
    Our A/C is set to turn off when it's 26deg inside.

    1. Margaret, it is just a very gentle breeze on the fan's lowest setting. We turn ours on if the inside temperature gets to about 24.

  5. I slept with my aircon on too, it was too gross otherwise.

    1. Fen, I woke to a beautiful sunrise and thought, fuck it, I can't be bothered and I am going back to bed and Fen will take a photo, and sure enough.
