Sorry if I worried anyone

No funny/witty posts tonight.
It's been a long and mostly negative week

Last weekend was excruciatingly hot.
I got badly sunburned [ sunscreen, hat, shade sail, the whole nine yards, and still I got scorched ]
I lost the stone from my engagement ring.

It took 5 days to get the Christmas stuff down and semi squared away

It's been raining pretty much constantly since Sunday.
The weather [ or possibly all the packing/unpacking ] is playing havoc with the FMS.

Like everyone else in the country I'm sick at heart about the incredible scale of the losses of Queensland floods, and trying not to whinge about the fact that my big shed just got inundated for the third time since September because it seems so paltry stacked up against what those poor people have to endure.

So that's it

Family and friends in Queensland are flooded but okay
Tomorrow - if the roads are passable - I'm going down to Melbourne to collect the Grandkittens.

Expect feline hostilities to commence shortly after my return!

Sorry you had a rugged week and sorry about the shed and even more about the lost stone.
Is your ring insured against all risks...i have a few things under this after I lost one of the tiny stones in my ring and found out that lost is not covered except under the above.
take care if traveling tomorrow...I was going out to lunch and pictures but we decided to wait.

Sorry about the ring.. and the shed.. and the FMS..
But I am glad to see a post from you, as I have been worried.

We made it down as far as Sunbury tonight, the drive back was better than the drive down, so fingers crossed for continued improvement tomorrow.

I had been wondering how you were. The news folk up here make it sound like all of Australia is washing away...
Here to a better week!
