Be careful what you wish for  
This time last week I was bemoaning the fact that my back lawn was brown and crispy, with only a green rectangle to show where I washed my car. Since then the rain has come, thanks to ex-tropical cyclone Oswald, my lawn is lovely and green, and I'm starting to feel somewhat mildewy.

Australia Day today, with a long weekend to celebrate, and my niece has flown up from Sydney to have a look around the area. She's planning on moving up here with her boyfriend early next year, and wanted to see what she could get for her money. We're going out to a Thai restaurant for dinner tonight with my son and his girlfriend, which should be fun.

Meanwhile I've mopped floors, groomed cats (can't believe how much they're still shedding!) and done some grocery shopping. Now I'm just fooling around here until Sarah gets back from househunting, then we're heading over to my son's for a while before dinner. I hope everyone else is having a good weekend, and managing to stay warm (for my arctic Canadian and other northern hemisphere friends), and dry for my Aussie mates.

It has been lovely, thanks, and should continue to be so.

Oh, yes! It was warm today : max was around -16C, I believe.

Positively balmy :-)

Enjoy your week-end!

Well that's a bit better, another Canadian friend had -25C so things must be looking up.

Nice soggy old Australia Day weekend this year. Hope the weather doesn't put your niece off moving up here, but at least it is still warm.

Pumpkin is still shedding too. Suppose it is still the middle of Summer and so to be expected.

Enjoy your weekend with your family. ♥

The wet shouldn't deter her; she's moving because my sister (her mother) is moving up here early next year.

My cats usually do their major shed during Spring, so that they're nice and cool for the summer months. It's really unusual for them to be dropping as much coat as they are at this time of year.

I shall enjoy my weekend, and hope you do likewise!
