We had an amazing 20 mls of rain overnight … and a blackout for most of it. And when I was ready for my Chinese lesson at 9am there was another blackout!! In the mid afternoon there was another blackout!! When I rang up to find out what was going on, I was told this last time was to do some maintenance. I suggested that they should let us know when they deliberately plan to turn the power off … the fellow said that would take up too many phone lines, and people wouldn’t be able to ring in!!! Haven’t they heard of sms!!
In the photo is a winter time claret ash on the left and a casurina or she-oak on the right. Our summer flower display is resting, the lawn has died back from frosts, the wheelbarrow has some fire wood in it, the ash bucket is upside down and some cactus type plants decorate our stone path. There is also a fireplace back there, with some billy cans and things; there’s a standing stick with a tennis ball attached for fun and exercise in the sun! Through the trees you can see … distance!
