Did you know that I lived in a castle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I do when it rains a lot, and that it certainly has 147.6mm in the last 24 hours. I knew that it had been raining pretty heavily last night, we have a colourbond roof so it gets a bit noisy when it rains heavily, but not in my wildest dreams did I imagine how much rain we have had.



Do you like my moat around the front and side of the house?

I went to take the boys to school, got a little way up the road and had to turn around, the roads were all flooded, one house that we passed had a ragging river in their back yard, I got the boys to try and take some photos while I was driving, but even those don't show how bad it is.



Those grey areas are normally front lawns now turned into rivers!!!

The boys think that it is great though, yesterday they had off because of the teacher strike and then today because of flooding, makes me wonder what is in store for us tomorrow.

On to my decorating everything is moving along slowly, still waiting on things to arrive in the post, I have some grouting to do today, I will show you some photos as soon as it is all finished.

UPDATE - Since writting this post Wednesday morning the rain did not stop all morning, don't know how much rain we ended up with but I was starting to get a bit worried, it was 5cm off of flooding our house, you stepped out our front door into a river. Thankfully the rain did stop and the waterlevel has dropped, I just hope there is no more rain. The following photos are taken of the side of the house.




Cheers,

You have a moat! Very clever post. Well, I hope the rivers on your front lawn don't swell anymore than that!

Hmmm that's weird the computer just lost my comment! I'll try again, and sorry if the first one magically appears and it comes up twice now!

I hope you are getting drier up there, it's amazing to see so much water! I had forgotten what it looked like! You sure do have a moat around your castle!

Just wanted to check with you to see if you had sent your swap package, and if you had received one.
Please let me know. I also sent you an e-mail with questions to answer.

Hi Linda, wow you did have a lot of rain. It looks like you are living on the river. Hope all is better now and the rains over.
Sounds like you are busy decorating too.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I really love rain but if it is too much, it is not good anymore. Well, good thing that you live in a castle(“,) coz rain can’t be there and overflow. LOL
