Down in the South Pacific Lies the land of Oz. Nowt to do with the Judy Garland's 1939 wizard of Oz movie, however, we do have heaps of yellow dust roads just as bumpy as brick ones. As for wizards in oz, we have an over supply drawn mostly from the ranks of failed lawyers, who now pose as leaders of the community. Besides being a country made up seven states, Oz is also a Continent which colloquially speaking occasionally becomes 'Incontinent' due to the diverse weather patterns. Oz is an upside down Country, where Christmas comes during the height of summer when locals get it off instead of rugging up. Our hot winds come from the North; so a southerly wind during the festive season can be a blessing.
Officially, today is the first day of summer in Oz, I live on the beautiful Central Coast 120klm North of Sydney in New South Wales on the Pacific Ocean. Last night we required an extra blanket at 2..AM and the temp was 11 Cel at 8..AM. It is now 1030..AM and we have an outside temp of 16 Cel, It is completely overcast and we are having intermittent rain continuing from midday yesterday. tomorrow could be a different kettle of fish probably not unlike eight days ago when we sweltered in temperatures ranging up to 46 Cel when I wore shorts and a singlet but right now a fleece top and track pants.
Checking the car tyres before going shopping yesterday revealed a large nail and a flat rear tyre, all fixed now but a nuisance having got cleaned up to go out and it was piddling down.
I may be going visiting this weekend it is unlikely more will be posted until next week, then again I may change my mind ( am I allowed to do that)I'll ask her indoors.
Everyone have a pleasant week. Back soon Vest.
