  1. One after Another

    Tuesday, 22 February 2011

    We've had an interesting and eventful last few weeks.

    Cyclone Carlos came through and while not quite sweeping us off our feet, certainly knocked us on our butts. It has rained so. much and we've been bogged in our own driveway not once, but twice. One of them is a funny story. I'll tell it later. One was a 4WD. I restrained from making a comment to my husband who's been at me that we NEED to buy one so that we don't get bogged. Or if the other car does, the 4WD can pull it out. But, being incredibly discerning, I figured it probably wouldn't have been funny.

    For him I mean. I found it hilarious.

    I have been terribly lax with my multitude Monday's... I'm pretty sure today I need to catch up at least 80. so I'll break them up with pictures :)

      HA! It actually belongs to our land lady, but she sleeps on our washing line. She's a great 'pet' :)

    Thanks for chiming in :)

    I really promote conversation here, and I only ask that you be considerate of others feelings, and remember that tone doesn't always translate well over type. An emoticon can work wonders! ;)
