Raining




Rain, rain and a bit more rain that is what the weather is like here but it could be worse I could be living in an area that has flooding. http://au.news.yahoo.com/full-coverage/qld-floods/a/-/article/15965804/live-coverage-queensland-flood-crisis/

At least it isn’t stinking bloody hot too………………..lol that said it is not cold either mostly it is just pleasant heat wise. 

Yesterday I went over to my parents place for lunch as it is mum’s birthday on Wednesday, I took her present over as well I bought her some garden gnomes that she can place in her pot plants and fill with water and they will water her plants for her. She was very happy with them and I hope they work well for her; they are going away for a few days next month so she said it will be good to see how they go while she is away.

Tim has gone to Sydney to day to see his sister; he also took his brother with him so he didn’t expect me to go with him. I am a little worried about him driving in such bad weather, even though I know he will not be driving like an idiot I still worry.

  1. That is some very wet weather you all are having- hopefully it won't turn into flooding for you. That was a very thoughtful gift for your mom- I'm sure they will be a great thing for her plants!

  3. Those floods in Queensland are just awful.
    We had a touch of rain today but nothing extreme.
    Not even enough really to soak the garden.
    Hope your weather clears to some nice days this week

  5. The world's weather has just gotten so unusual. We are still in a drought here in the middle part of America. Typically, it should be freezing with snow here in January but today will be 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I wish the rain would come over here.

  11. Rain is never fun to drive in - where I live it rains constantly and we get a few floods a year, but luckily nothing horrible to where you have to stay at home.
    Hope it doesn't flood and that Tim has a safe commute!
