holidays have started!

September 24th, 2009 at 10:15 pm

My holidays have started today! Unfortunately, even though to most a holiday is meant to go hand in hand with sleeping in (in my case sleeping in is 7am - still an extra two hours though!) today, tomorrow and Sunday I have to still get up around 5am Frown but it is all for a good cause.
Today I got up with DF to take Jed for a walk, and then do final cleaning before I meet my parents at the airport.
Tomorrow I am going into work to make the mini custard tarts and ice the mini cupcakes.
And on Sunday I have to get up and make sandwhiches, and then bag a spot at the park so no one else takes it! We are getting there two hours early, because several things are happening in the area and we believe there will be massive amounts of people there. Puts a bit of a damper on the day, but oh well.
Most people have RSVP'd. I have heard from other people that a few are coming who have NOT RSVP'd (which actually annoys me - how hard is it to send a text message??? or a facebook message? or, I know, CALL! Bah!) Anyway. So all up I believe around 45-50 people are going to be there.

If you haven't heard, parts of Australia have been covered in dust storms (that aren't usually).

Google Image 'Dust storms Australia' and you will find some interesting pictures.

It was worse in Sydney and Melbourne than in Queensland, where we live, but my car is covered in a layer of dust, and I was coughing a lot on the day and the day after. When you were outside it was like you were breathing in chalk - eugh!
But, because I have never been in a dust storm of that size and severity, I thought it was beautiful. Everyone was complaining about it, which I suppose is normal, but honestly, it's not something you see every day. I thought it was particularly cool. It's not often the sky is a browny red colour all day, and it's not often you can't see 20 metres in front of you.

Anyway. That's all for now. I may or may not blog for the next week. Enjoy my absence! lol. Wink

    Reading about the dust storms leads me to recall when a large volcano blew up when I was a little kid (Mount Saint Helens in 1980). There was ash everywhere, and you couldn't go outside without a mask over your mouth. Even driving was dangerous, because it got into the gas tanks and engines and the like. That kind of damage isn't covered by your insurance, as my dad found out! Enjoy your holiday...
