Frankly the best and most thrilling news I can report today is that we've managed to pay the house insurance. Had to sell the first born to NRMA to do it, but now if there is a bushfire we shall at least be able to replace a third of our possessions, so it was well worth it.
Other than that it is hot. Hubby has spent the day levering one of my Uncle's cows out from under a tractor, out of the dam and then out from a trench (same cow - tractor was an old rusty number in the paddock that it managed to get wedged under, then wild with thirst it sprinted into the dam and got stuck, then hours later it fell in a trench and couldn't get itself out - it is just fine now, in a new hazard free paddock with its friends). And there is a distinct niff of dead possum down the far end of the house again.
Cleaned bathroom, ate entire packet of caramel crowns, dropped screaming child off at pre school (child didn't want to stay), picked screaming child up from pre school (child didn't want to leave), paid bills, bought a thermometer, did a zillion loads of washing, went to the supermarket...
In my defence have been looking after a sickly child today (not the one I sent to pre school). But really its been a forgettable type of day, but thanks to NaBloWriMo, I shall now remember it forever.
