Hi , it's a wet soggy Monday here.
Although the sun is out now, it's been a pretty wet 24 hours.
While the southern states of Australia are enduring scorching 40 degree days and devastating bushfires the tropical north of the country is on watch for developing cyclones in the west, north and east.
It was a lovely weekend actually with the rain coming down all day Sunday. The boys were happy playing with their leggo and coming up with great Ninjago episodes of their own (love listening to their imaginitive play) and Hubby was napping on the couch. Makes him sound lazy doesn't it, but he is such a hard worker, both at work and around our one acre property. It was actually quite nice to see him just kicking back and relaxing.
I managed to get a fair amount of time to myself to do some blog housework and to get my card made for today's
