Australia Day Long Wet Weekend
Sorry that I have been absent we have had an extremely wet and unpredictable long weekend. We have only just got Electricity back after not having any power since Sunday.
You never realise how much you rely on Electricity in your home, we lost most of our food which we had only just bought. The hole town was without power for days having to travel to buy ice to keep what food we had cold and to get petrol.
Luckily we have good friends who live 3 houses up who have a lot of camping gear so we were able to get a gas cooker to try and cook food and boil water. we also went there to have a shower which we had to boil water and hook up a camping shower to a boat battery to power the water through the shower head.
I could not make it into work today due to being flooded in and have now just got our electricity back on in our house. I cannot wait to have a nice long shower and to wash my hair!
I hope everyone else had a lovely weekend else where and my thoughts go out to the people who have lost everything throughout Queensland due to the flooding and Cyclone.
