Not a lot happening just now! Winter almost done with thankfully, although last evening it had a final flourish when a mini tornado ripped through our part of Melbourne leaving 3 people dead because of trees falling on them or in one case, falling on his car, crushing him.
All this wasn’t very far away, yet I wasn’t aware there was a storm; Watching the penguins coming home again! Only disturbance here was a plastic garden chair tossed around. Warnings issued today to boil our tap water because of damage causing contamination. Good job I’ve still got some of that Shiraz left, although I don’t fancy dunking a tea-bag in it. I hate cold tea!
Megs I”m surprised your local MP wasn’t on the ball whilst seeking your votes! we have compulsory voting and a fine if your name isn’t crossed off at the polling booth, so the pollies know that there’s a potential voter to be wooed. Our No2 Son arranged for our Diamond cards, I think. There’s an official form for this sort of thing and once that’s submitted,the whole hierarchy fall into line. Can’t wait for my “Century Card” from the King!
Jane we have another Mary Berry prog. starting up on TV next week, so I’ll watch for her drizzling; not sure if she’s flying solo.
Enjoy your breakfasts; do they serve “Full English” in Scotland, or is it Haggis and cold milk only?
Couldn’t help smiling at your “this too shall pass” when we were warned this morning to boil our water, although the smile could be quickly removed by forgetting to boil!
Expect you are arming yourself with back copies of “The Oldie” in case the weather keeps you locked down in the Hotel. You never know! Still waiting on my next copy; the only things getting through are bills.
Our hotels and “security guards” have come in for a lot of stick at our Royal Commission looking into how the quarantine programme for returning travellers became a fiasco! Lack of training in that sort of thing, apparently. Very slack supervision!
Catching up with “The Salisbury Poisonings”, but it's becoming difficult to hang on to the plot as it often jumps from one part of the action to another with no apparent logical connection. Parts 3 and 4 yet to go, so it might become clearer.
Our train journey this evening was all about the Yukon and the gold rush. Amazing how the line was built in such an inhospitable wilderness.
