So you know how it's been so dry in Victoria recently? And our Autumn has been depressingly rain free? And how it suddenly broke last night in a massive storm complete with rather impressive lightning?
Well, that was due to us. Yep, my Beloved and I take full credit.
Sure, sure; you can clap if you want to. We saved your sad tomatoes and thirsty roses.
How did we do it?
We simply decided to transport a sofabed and two armchairs in the back of a ute from Melbourne to Gippsland with a tarpaulin that didn't quite cover them.
A brilliant plan, don't you think? Of course it was going to rain after being dry for ages and ages.
Halfway home, hardly able to see in front of us and with the rain aiming straight for the bit at the front that was most exposed, we cracked up laughing. My roses are deliciously joyful. We now have a living room full of wet furniture which the Poppet and I will attempt to dry off while the Sprocket's at kindy this morning. I'm not entirely sure the hairdryer's going to do it, but it would be nice to finally find a use for it. Wish us luck!
P.S. Folks, folks, in case you missed it we now have a sofabed. You can come stay!
