Halfway through our crazy ice disaster on Monday – in the middle of a hot summer!
This was a strange week. I’m not online all that much at the moment, due to a couple of health things, including some debilitating pain I’ve been having down one side of my head. I think I’ve been asleep more than awake in the last few days.
This week started with my father’s birthday, during which we had a freak storm. It hit after dinnertime, and we heard it coming long before it hit – like a thousand locomotives coming our way.
We were hit horizontally with chunks of ice (hail), some the size of golf balls. it damaged parts of the house – as you would expect.
We also had a few hours to experience the life of historical romance characters when the power lines around here were knocked down.
Note to people: keep candles in your house! It looked like we were one the few houses around with them, and they were definitely needed!
The back deck eight hours after the storm!
One of my crappy photos ended up in The Canberra Times.
The next day was Australia Day – a national holiday. We went to a Cuban/South American bar, which had about six pages of different types of rum on the menu.
Then we were off to meet people from the Ukrainian embassy for lunch a couple of days afterwards.
And then I was too sick to achieve anything for the rest of the week (well, apart from dinner at our “local” restaurant)!
Anybody else HATING the new WordPress admin? It is unusable for me, as you can no longer search your scheduled posts. On two of my blogs I have some posts already scheduled for more than half a year away, and I have to scroll through ALL OF THEM in order to check my posts for the coming week.
I’m sick of computer types ruining things in order to make them fancier. I want lists in an administration section, not pretty colours and pictures!
