Travel, Weather

Hello there……………….

Home again – still trying to sort my sleeping pattern out – for some reason or another my brain thinks 4am is waking time lol

Kiera came home from the cattery and hasn’t left my side – the washing is all done – ironed and put away – must be a record for me!

Everything is so green – so very different to when we left in late August.  There are leaves on all the trees who shed them including next door’s big oak tree and the some of the roses are actually blooming.  The foliage of the winter bulbs is hidden by the rose foliage – which  means they can rest and die down peacefully till spring next year.

The weather was great for the first couple of days we were home – sunny and warm and then the winds picked up and picked up some more to gale force and the rain started which meant Victoria has been through a couple of days of rather nasty weather more in keeping with winter than spring. This link is for inland today but could also have been for the city and suburbs yesterday –   http://www.abc.net.au/melbourne/weather/warnings.htm

Roofs off – trees down – some of them  onto houses and cars – some over roads which has caused more problems.  And the temperature has plummeted so bang goes my idea of not turning the heating on again 😦

We had fun, shed a few tears and gained a few kilos – I’ll tell you about it another day
Bye for now
Cathy

  1. Hello cathy, at least you had a few good days to get the washing dried. We have the heater going and I’ll be hanging it all on the clothes horses. I’ll be picking up bella from the cattery tomorrow. I hope she hasn’t forgotten me

  2. Hi Cathy
    Just realised I hadn’t seen a post form you in ages and realised you have dropped off my blog again, along with Down to Earth. Somehow theoldreader doesn’t like me reading the Aussie blogs! Your garden is looking lovely and lush by the way.

  3. Welcome home. I was only 125 miles away from home yet notice the drop in temperatures since I came home. We had a weather warning today for torrential rain with a chance of thunder. The rain was so heavy, I was unable to see through the window for an hour or so. I live on top of a hill, so I have the chance to build an ark before the water reaches me!
