I want some queensland weather!!!!
Honestly,where does the time go? 2 weeks since my last post and i havnt had a minute spare!We had some nasty weather last weekend and were without power for 2 whole bloody days due to some massive trees falling on power lines and blocking off the roads!Not much fun when it is only 6 degrees,freezing cold with no heating,no lights and worst off all,NO tv!!! So i had to miss Australian idol and i had been looking forward to it all week!My poor German students had a real glimpse of Australian life living up a mountain!Happens all the time,power loss every time we have a wicked storm! I suppose its better than the bushfires in summer.
Must say i am very very jealous of what i am hearing every morning of the qld forecasts,30 degrees!!!! How is that possible? It is about 7 degrees here in the morning when i take the kids to school and my central heating hasnt been switched off since March!As well as the open fire! I want some warm weather!!!
Have done a bit of sewing this week,made some nice ruffled cushions and have a lot more ideas waiting to go! Just dont find the time to sit down in front of the machine,i am missing my old friend!
I am having so much fun with my German kids,they really are great kids.Went into town last Friday night and walked along the river and had a gourmet meal of Mc Donalds.Yuk,but the kids were happy!Show them all these lovely restaurants along southbank and what do they choose?Crap,thats what!!!
had a nice day out in Brunswick st with my friend Kaz on Tuesday,lots of lovely little arty farty shops and a great lunch!I love people watching down there,so many nutters,hippies and weirdos!My sort of people!
Anyway,i suppose i had better go and get some dinner ready,ahead of yet again another busy weekend!Booked a few trips next year,a week in Thailand in Feb and a trip to Sydney in May,so that will keep me sane looking forward to those!
Heres a couple of pics of this weeks auctions and a few others i thought were cute!!!Do you like my cat Timmy who buried himself in my dressing gown on my computer chair?He made a nest,he loves to hide in things!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
