Another technology driven PC detox

I think the Hill PC has finally carked it this time. My usual tricks to coax it back to life are failing. And giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to an inanimate object is beginning to look a little suspect. Desperation isn't pretty. So I am falling back on my blessed library, again.

Its been a wet week here in Central Queensland. It has rained daily for most of the day for about two weeks and is forecast to continue for another week. As you know we live in a shed. Cooped up in a 56 sq m space with two boys and NO INTERNET ACCESS is driving me a little loco! All the things I could be reading, writing, researching.... but alas no. Time is spent mopping up the water that seeps (gushes) in under our door due to the overflowing gutters, and attempting to wash the boys clothes after they frolick in the muddy puddles. Am beginning to think my pledge to never buy a clothes dryer is under threat.

Twice this week the bridge to our township was closed due to it being overtaken by the flooding waters of Reliance Creek. Its a phenomenal sight. But better if you are on the side that you want to be, and not waiting on the other for it to subside

I'll show you photos if ever the PC is resurrected.

I hope you are all well and dry and enjoying some sunshine. Send some my way, won't you, please?

Until I grace the local library again, keep well.



  1. Man alive! I can't believe you don't have a dryer!!!!

    Here's to some techy gods intervening and your connection to the virtual world being smoothed out sooner rather than later.

    Hugs to youli, Hooli!

  2. Thanks Felicity! I've resisted a dryer for so long. Expensive to run and bad for the environment - but this wet season and my boys proclivity for mud dancing is testing my resolve. Now that I'll soon have school uniforms to worry about I may have to reconsider.
    Hugs to you too.

  3. Hey Hooli - haven't seen you in ages. Everything okay?
