Oops. I fell off the blogtoberfest wagon. In my defence - last week was a rough one. There was a family afflicted with gastro, a washing machine that had died (after being serviced twice in as many months) and a clothes line that snapped at the posts and fell down. Moreover it was school holidays and we had interstate visitors. *exhale* After drowning in washing, a few visits with three children in toe to the local laundry mat (@ $5/wash load – OMG!) eventually finding an afternoon to get to an electrical store to buy a new washing machine (that naturally was delivered on a rainy day!) and a Sunday afternoon installing a new clothes line - I have finally come up for air.
