Napping Weather

An old storm has been blowing about our town for the past few days.   It dumped a pile of rain on Sydney Australia, and then blew across the Tasman and tried to drown us.  The rain and wind was crazy last night, I am sure that not much of the town slept.  Mum pulled out her most waterproof coat this morning, but still got drenched.  It took all day for her pants to dry out, and when she changed from her uniform to her casual clothes when work finished - she found them damp as well.  The lucky thing was it is crazy warm, with the temperature a balmy 17 deg C.  In fact last night mum was a bit too warm in bed.

So this afternoon, the rain has died down and the winds are moving away from our city.  Mum had to go to the library and drop off some books, and pick up her new stack.  It made her happy that they are renovating the library, and so instead of the normal 3 week return period, they have let her have them for 10 weeks.  So she has a huge pile to see her through.

She then stopped off at the local kebab shop - run by a small Turkish mum and dad and daughter.  Their kebabs are light and fresh and piled with fresh vegetables.   She dished up my feast and ate her dinner while watching the UKs got Talent show.  The dishes were done, and lunch was organised for tomorrow.  She boiled up some eggs, and mashed them ready to be made into sandwiches tomorrow morning.  An egg sandwich, yoghurt and banana make a quick and easy lunch.


  1. Goodness! We've had the same weather over here to Poppy!x
    Just to~day it's dried out, and l've just managed to get out the
    front and cut the grass...Little bit of rain, and everything goes mad!

    HaHa! Poppy!x You made me laugh....Takes ALL day for Mum's
    pants to dry...Tell her, it's quicker if she takes them off first! :>).

  2. Wow, that sounds like a day that would have been better spent indoors. You no doubt had the right idea, Poppy.

  3. Glad that storm has blown away now Poppy. We had gale force winds here on Tuesday and everything was blowing around everywhere.

  5. Stay as dry as you can. Mum says her library did the, check out as many as you want and keep them for 2 months when they moved to the new building. But that was over 10 years ago.

  6. Poppy, dear, you do have the expression of someone who did not sleep through a storm... Egg salad for lunch sounds excellent! Does your mum use dark mustard and add bits of sweet pickle?
