Jumping in Muddy Puddles

This week has brought with it, our first cyclone warning, tropical cyclone Christine. Something to bring in the New Year with. While not in the direct path of the cyclone, we had all the accompanying wind and rain that went with it.

Mother nature can be an exhilarating thing in these parts. While we are extremely grateful that nobody was injured, and no property was damaged, we are also extremely excited for other things. The chance to jump in muddy puddles (yes, just like Peppa Pig). To wear our rain coats. Our gumboots (Miss A's feet seem to have grown again, time to go shopping). And to do a little rain dance. All a novelty to us now.

Hope you enjoyed a relaxing first day of 2014!


  1. Happy New Year! Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog - it's nice to have found you! I love your part of the world and there's something special about the smaller more isolated communities..... I just read your last Post and it brought back some very vivid memories of when we travelled around Australia in a caravan and this time 2 years ago we were caught in a very similar situation driving through the Pilbara where we narrowly escaped a cyclone - scary stuff! Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2014. Mel x

    1. A caravan is not a good place to be in during a cyclone. A very lucky escape! Thanks for visiting x
