Bec, Amy and Amy's Mum at the birthday meal
It's still raining - I really can't believe it. Everyone I talk to says how unusual it is..."It never rains this much". That's because I wasn't here before! And it's not even going in the reservoirs where it's needed, apparently. Water is a big issue here.
Last night it was Amy's birthday so her brother Jason came round for dinner with his astoundingly pregnant wife, Fiona. She is about ready to burst - they had the 'hospital bag' in the car with them when they came, she's due any day. Amy's Mum cooked up some seafood and we had a fair amount of wine. Jason's a city trader, and looks every inch a city trader. Sometimes I feel like I've slipped into an episode of Dynasty - although no-one's been shot or gone into a coma yet.
Wildlife update - no spiders yet, but according to Faye a foot-long Goanna (lizard) was prowling about in the garage yesterday. She found it hiding under her car (a scarlet BMW of course) and left the garage door open for it to scurry out. Not sure if it did or not, but maybe it'll help with the spiders...
