It’s raining today. It rained yesterday and the day before too. After weeks of high alerts, bushfires and crazy temperatures, autumnal rain has hit – almost on cue with the flipping of the calendar page. Maybe this will be the rain that breaks our awful drought. The heater is on too. It’s 13 degrees outside which is certainly not the coldest it gets here but given that less than a week ago it was 36, it’s a bit of a shock.

Ducks expressed some concern about my ability to cope with the resulting cabin fever that’s inevitable in this kind of weather. Given my NEED to leave the house everyday, I wonder the same. Today though, it feels kind cosy and familiar. A whole decade ago, I worked as a nanny for 2 years in London. It was cold and wet and dreary a lot there and somehow I survived. So today I’m feeling nostalgic and capable with my beautiful boy sleeping on my chest and 2 loads of washing already done.
