Question: Is it ever going to stop raining in random and voluminous intervals in Melbourne? *Sigh*.
Yesterday we had one of Those Days that everyone had in the lead-up to Christmas, with 5 commitments scattered in a wide arc from our house throughout the day and evening. And as you already know if you live in Melbourne, yesterday it rained. And rained. AND RAINED. In copious, driving quantities.
We got wet going into swimming. (Yes, I appreciate the absurdity of that statement :-) We got wet coming back from swimming. Hubs and eldest got wet going to guitar lessons, and we all got a light soaking running into a friend's birthday party. This was all nothing compared with how wet we got getting from where we parked our car to dinner at the Southbank restaurant my mother had selected for my Dad's birthday dinner.
Damp and steaming was the order of the day, it seemed.
And today, when the furthest we have to go from home is 5 minutes, once, where we can park next to the door?
Not a raindrop in sight. Lucky we love you, Melbourne.
In other news ...
Using Random.org yesterday, I selected the winner of the Cars 2 pack giveaway ...
Random.org picked number 6, so that means FIONA is the lucky winner! Woo hoo!
Fiona, can you contact me by Wednesday with a postal addy that I can supply to Disney for the mailing of your pack. Thanks everyone for playing :-)
