I just about managed to prise myself out of bed this morning to get Sibs ready
for violin ensemble that started at 7am.
(What kind of a time is that to start school when you're nine....and on a Monday morning?)
Sibs is oblivious to mornings and can switch from asleep to wide awake in a nano second!
Let's just say I am not at my best in the mornings and when you couple that with the Australian Open men's final that went on until almost 1am, I was most definitely not at my best this morning.
Anyhow, once I'm up, I'm up, so might as well make the most of the day.
We had another wet weekend here and spent the day indoors on Saturday.
By Sunday mid-morning cabin fever had set in so we decided to brave the elements and venture out.
It was on with the rain coats and wellies and then this is what greeted us around the corner...
It looks like a bit of surface water collected on the road - however, this is at least waist high and fast flowing!
Everything is growing at a crazy pace with all the rain. Unfortunately that includes all the weeds!
This bamboo is slowly being surrounded by water but is holding its ground.
We managed a short walk, but after a while decided to give it up and came home.
Even the local wildlife looked displeased with the rain.
So we got out of our wet clothes, chose a family movie ,battened down the hatches,
and made a good old Sunday roast.
I'm off to Ikea this morning.
I couldn't find my list earlier and Neil swears that he didn't throw it away!
I might need a boat to get there at this rate!
Have a great week,
