OK, I’m in Queensland, and it’s cold. The last few days have been truly beautiful, but last night I froze my butt off. So if I’m turning blue in Hervey Bay, no wonder things are getting dicey for missjenjen down in country Victoria. When I lived in South Gippsland the ice on the grass would crackle as we walked to the gate in the morning to wait for the school bus. I spent last night fixing M’s computer, the problem turned out to be a dodgy stick of RAM. When I went to bed (a considerable time after M) I had Melbourne flashbacks; my feet were so cold I couldn’t sleep. Tonight I am getting the doona out of retirement – cotton blankets only cut it so far.

On other wildly exciting topics, today I spent over $50 buying two pairs of gumboots, for a couple of reasons: one – I need to keep the person that has supplied me with half a mudcrab for the past four nights relatively happy (and computer fixing only gets me so far); two – I need to keep the person that has supplied me with half a mudcrab for the past four nights from feeling lonely while playing hunter gatherer (and I need to excercise my slowly widening butt, what better way than walking through mud hunting down my dinner?)

Tonight:
The wonder of the mudcrab. Never again will I be able to look at a crabstick in quite the same way.
I promise this is the last crab pic for a while….
