It's Raining again!


It  has been raining solid for 3 days now,all the long weekend and  was wet,wild,windy and we had a surprise visit from my daughter and her three gorgeous children,the time was spent playing cards,eating yummies, doing a jig saw and eating yummies.I had the makings of Kates favourites,Lambs Fry and Bacon  and a piece of silverside,she was in blissland lol.
Anyway yes I forgot to take pics I was too busy cuddling kids and smooching my much missed girl,she is just precious to me ,so is my son and I am going to babysit for him this coming weekend so I will get another load of grammy cuddles!
My main thing is that with this rain it is horrible for the postie and his lady.I feel sorry for Bob as in Australia they deliver on little postie motor bikes and the footpaths are sloppy and muddy when it is like this,at the end of the day his legs have terrible cramps from staying balanced.As you know I go right up into the mountains delivering mail and this calm crossing in the pic will be flooded! I go across many of these,I do not know how far I will be able to go as the creeks come right up when in flood, the farmers have put safety markers for me now as when I first started I did not what was safe and what was not and almost got washed away,I lost my number plates and the front of the car was pulled off(the big bumper bar bit) so now I am really cautious as the water can come raging in seconds.Last week a huge boulder was dislodged onto the road and someone before me had rolled it to the side,I was so thankful it did not fall as I drove by,I took pics but did not upload hem properly and removed them from my camera!so today I will take pics of my day and show you,funny if the rain is not right up in the mountains I will have to do a post on wet chickens who won't stay in the roost lol.

  1. That photo looks very charming with its pretty stream and trees, but not for the posties.
    Take care Carole.

    I don't mind the rain but wouldn't like Bob's job at all on days like today!

    Glad you had a nice weekend.
    Blessings,
