THUNDERSTORM...A BIT OF RAIN!! IN A MESS!! AS USUAL..














HI LADIES....WELL WHILST WRITING THIS LITTLE BLOG...THERE HAS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF A THUNDERSTORM HERE IN OLD MELBOURNE TOWN...AND LOOK AT THE WATER..LITERALLY GOING DOWN THE DRAIN...
WITH THE WATER RESTRICTIONS/DROUGHT ETC...ONE WOULD THINK THERE COULD BE SOME KIND OF PROVISION TO CAPTURE THIS WASTED RAIN WATER??

ANYWAY...NICE TO SEE RAIN ... AND SOME THUNDER & LIGHTENING.. I KNOW THIS IS QUITE USUAL FOR YOU LADIES IN QLD...BUT A MUCH RARER EVENT IN MELBOURNE..

SO WHILST SITTING AT MY LITTLE LAPTOP LISTING STUFF ON EBAY..AND PROBABLY NOT DOING MY TENNIS ELBOW MUCH GOOD RE THE TOTALLY NON ERGANOMIC TABLE MY LAP TOP IS ON...

I HAVE JUST GONE TO MY "EBAY ROOM" AS I CALL IT...AND JUST LOOKED AT THE MESS!! THE STUFF I HAVE TO GET MOTIVATED TO LIST...
AND THEN I LOOKED AT THE ROOM NEXT DOOR...

THIS ROOM USED TO BE MY HUBBIES STUDY...MANY A YEAR AGO...I HAVE REPAINTED IT A RICH APPLE TYPE GREEN...HAD NEW WHITE BLINDS INSTALLED..PAINTED THE BOOKCASE WHITE..
BUT NOW I JUST STORE HEAPS OF BOXES & OTHER JUNK RE EBAY...
I HAVE ALL MY CROSS STITCH GOODIES I SEWED MANY A YEAR AGO FRAMED ... AND HAVE TO GET MOTIVATED TO SELL THE PATTERNS FOR SUCH...!!
PLUS IT HAS LOTS OF MY SONS CERTIFICATES RE THEIR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS ETC...

SO IT DID START OFF AS A STUDY FOR MY HUBBY!! BOOTED HIM OUT TO HIS OFFICE..REPAINTED ETC..AND NOW IT HAS MY CRAFTY STUFF...SONS' CERTIFICATES..
BED FOR A GUEST!!?? AND LOTS OF MY EBAY BOXES (NOT VISIBLE) FOR POSTING STUFF!!!

I THINK EBAY IS QUITE LIKE A CREEPY CRAWLEY MACHINE...IT GRADUALLY SPREADS THROUGHOUT MY HOUSE..! UNLIKE SPREADING ACROSS/& CLEANING A SWIMMING POOL..IT IS GRADUALLY SPREADING ACROSS MY HOUSE!! BUT NOT CLEANING!!

ANYWAY...NICE TO SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE RAIN IN MELBOURNE...AND HAVE BEEN WATCHING ..ON CNN...THE "HORROR" UNFOLDING IN INDIA OVER THE LAST FEW HOURS..

THANK GOODNESS WE LIVE IN AUSTRALIA!!!

TAKE CARE EVERYONE...XXXX ANDREA

Hi Andrea,
I'm giggling about your 'ebay room', my craft room has relocated it's self to into the lounge room, the dining table & various other places....Adam has told me in no uncertain terms to move it, but it's still there so I guess it doesn't bother him that much!
Hope the storms didn't wreak to much havock at your place.
Chat soon,

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for visiting my blog! Nice to meet a fellow Melburnian!
Wasn't the rain great, even though it was short lived. Did you get those chunks of hail too? It sounded like the skylight was going to smash into pieces!
