    Up early (or earlier) for a Sunday moaning. Sydney was shrouded in fog & it's not late February. Last night's storm and lack of air movement over the Sydney Basin mustn't have blown away the cobwebs.

    Probably going to be a warm day once the sun burns off the cloud.

    Anything else that you have noticed which is out of synch?

    Its weird. Adelaide's weather is turning into moody Melbourne, all seasons in a day.

    We have had the wettest summer I can remember for a long time ... and hot for only 1-2 days in a row instead of the normal week of sweltering

    We had nearly 200mm yesterday afternoon, but that's typical for January up here (Noosa area). Geelong would be Atlantis.... :eek:

    I just realised it's Sunday, thought it was Monday... Got some rain too, which has been a while between drinks so good to see. I don't know what the norm is for wa, it's all kinds of weird :p

    I will carry on pulling my hair out trying to keep a toddler out of the toilet! There are no child locks for leave type door handles! :mad:

    A bit of 3mm nylon hung over the door. Block of timber on both sides of the door.

    A friend managed to lock herself out of her home yesterday afternoon... she managed to get a locksmith to get her back into her home. Lucky because the storm came soon after.
    Pity I forgot about my washing that was out drying in the sunshine....

    Almost, we don't generally associate with anyone south of Peregian these days. :p

    Seriously though, I've always liked the beachside of Nicklin Way, we used to sneak down and surf the banks off Currumundi Lake when it was open to the ocean, Wurtulla and Point Cartwright when a swell was running. Between work and the coast changing A LOT I don't really get down there anymore which is a bit of a shame.

    Yeah I hear that about you Noosa people. :p

    Stayed up Hastings Street last week. I hear you with work and the evolution of the coast keeping me out of the water as often as I'd like. That'll change as soon as the passive income begins to catch up to the earned income and I can replace work hours with green room time while the body is still young enough to cope.

    Yes we've always been a bit full of ourselves. :p

    That's the spirit, get out there while you can and stay fit! I read people talking about retirement, losing some weight, moving to the coast somewhere, maybe buying a boat. I feel blessed because if that is what it means I've been "retired" on and off since I was 8.

    I hope you get more time in the water soon mate, nothing feels better and while habit forming, it's the safest, healthiest antidepressant I've ever come across.
