Just for Something Different...

Now I'm not going to complain a great deal, but for the sake of all the people in central Queensland... Mother Nature we've had enough rain thank you!!! Enough is enough it's time to let it dry out so people get back to their homes!!

It is raining here again.. We live in south - east Queensland which is below central Queensland. We are not affected but it is very sad to see the towns close byish getting hammered by the floods.

Everything is SO wet that there is nowhere for water to go put in big puddles.

I got a call from Ben before to have a look at this. This is our front garden under our steps to the front of our house.

Ben had to dig a make shift drain for the water to get away so it would build up and seep into the bar area.

This is a snap shot of our back yard. Pretty sure if you click on the photo it will enlarge it and you will notice all the little water courses flowing down our yard..

We have had some sunshine recently, on Sunday we got out the Slip and Slide the boys got for Christmas. It was alot of fun on a very hot sunny steamy day!

Slip and Slide.

Wyatt enjoying himself!!

Now to update you quickly on our New years and Christmas days.

New Years was a blast, we had some friends over for drinks and food, played a board game laughed lots. All round lots of fun! We had a visitor at 3.30am in the morning. We all weren't sure if we were seeing things or not, But Ben got a photo of it..

A little Silver Fox came down to visit us.. He Must have been hungry as he didn't run off and got fairly close to us.. We have found out since that they are a pest to our native wildlife etc... He hasn't come back that we've seen anyway, we are not always up at 3.30 am haha. Ben wants to get "rid" of him... I'm not so sure how i feel about it.. I'll get back to you lol.

This is what our Christmas day entailed. Boating, fishing, Swimming a little sunshine lots of food and family!! PERFECT!!

Right now I'm working most days, as it's a couple of weeks to school resumes we have a back to school sale for shoes, lots of parents lots of shoes 4 very tired sales assistants only a couple of weeks into the sale haha, but we will prevail sip on our cold coffee's in between serving and get through it!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New year celebrations, I wish you all the very best for 2011. And a BIG thinking of everyone in central Queensland lets hope the rains let up and we all dry out for awhile. Fingers crossed.
