The Calm Between Storms

We hang between the flurry of swimming pools, Op Shopping trips, eating outdoors and the end of unpacking....and returning to regular life tomorrow. It is a brief interlude ~ one I value with great delight.

My highlight? Op Shopping and snapping up a $3 very classy-looking T-shirt. My second highlight was taking two friends off down to CleanSkin (a kitchenware store) and drooling our way through the entire shop. I also bought the one item I intended to ~ a new wooden chopping board. Did you know the new fandangled bamboo ones can't be washed in hot soapy water. Pffft. Who ever heard of such a ridiculous thing.

Mr Busy has had his customary broken-hearted little cry as he walked in the front door. Poor lad...he really suffers deeply, leaving his friends and all that fun behind. You can't imagine how long he sobs for when we return from our three week holiday!

I've begun a list of things that are a must for the caravan before our summer holiday and I'm feeling a little more motivated to get on with Christmas.

Glad you are all home safe and sound :)

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night!

We've reached that time of year where I'm trying to get my head around the fact that you're experiencing summer--and planning for Christmas. I'll never get that straight in my head. Is it just as weird for you to contemplate a chilly November?

Me too Rel ~ will SMS you about the time though LOL.

Frances, we still get plenty of chilly days through November and December. The very worst of our heat begins mid-late January and through til March. One Christmas Day we had heavy hail ~ other years can be stinking hot.

I can't get my head around the fact that you have your summer holidays in the middle of the year. Summer holidays and Christmas go together here!
