Weather Forecast

Our eldest is going to Super Nova or some such thing tomorrow and is a bit nervous.  Not because of the possible gravitation issues, its a collecting, sci/fi thingamajig not a astrological whatsit.  I think my linguistic skills are compromised by a lack of sleep.

Politics – Pauline Hanson

My husband insists I blog about this.  He has a whole speech about why its valid & important and will get it off my chest.  But he's not fooling me; we disagree and he's sick of listening.  So you have to put up with this.
