Out of a Clear, Blue Sky

By | January 18th, 2014|

After a record 5 days of temperatures over 41C/106F, the cool change finally arrived – as did my time lapse camera, so I rushed to set it up to catch the sky as it cooled. We didn’t get the storm I was hoping to capture, but it caught the eerie orange sky and some lovely cloud movement. Enjoy!

I am feeling more and more that my post-sea-rise/climate change novel should be my next project! We are on Day 4 of this weather, if we get a 5th day over 40 we are into record territory. For my farenheit friends, 44C is 111F. No, this is not normal for anywhere other than the centre of Australia, where it’s mostly uninhabitable desert. The only silver lining will be that heatwaves here are usually broken by magnificent storms which come to the rescue from Antartica, and drop the temperature in spectacular fashion (though a “usual” heatwave is a few days over 35C, so who knows?)

The House Hunt is Over!

By | April 5th, 2013|

Shrine of Remembrance and Government House at NightThe House Hunt is over! We will be able to move in from the 13th of April, but will need too co-ordinate the Air Shipment from Thailand (which should already be here, but isn’t), the shipment from Storage in Sydney (should take 1 week or so), and the Sea Shipment from Thailand (6-8 weeks).  Luckily, our bed has been in storage so unless it’s been stored badly and ruined (which it shouldn’t have been, but we’ve had bad storage experiences, before) we should be able to at least move in, soon, even if it will be  a little bare. It will be very good to sleep in our own bed, instead of a hard, Asian bed, and sit on our own couch – the couch we had in Thailand was truly hysterical in its lack of functionality!

Most of all, though, I am grateful to be out of Thailand and home. Can’t wait to set up my new writing space!
