Oh my word it’s hot in SA at the moment. The Weather Service has been issuing heatwave warnings with some places recording temperatures of more than 40°C and and it’s only Spring!!!!! On days like today there’s nothing more enjoyable than lying on a colourful blanket under dappled shade, sipping an ice cold beverage out of your own custom jug.
