Did the earth move for you?

The news is full of it, everyone is talking about it. The 'earthquake' that rocked Adelaide at 2.25 this morning. I'm a little amused because 3.3 is something I don't really consider an earthquake.

At the same time, I'm also thankful we didn't get something bigger which could have caused damage. They say we're overdue for a big one, but as they say no-one knows when or where.

The funniest part - last night was the first night that I've slept all through the night since my new 'queenly' bed arrived. Typical! Funnier still, because we're still adjusting to a normal bed and not a water bed, when hubby was woken by the ground moving he actually thought it was me rolling over in bed and shaking the bed.

Yes, they call me Superwoman. Okay so I might have a kilo or two extra that I could part with, but I certainly don't have the ability to move the earth or shake the shit out of the bed.

Awesome weather today 34.5C, roll on summer because I love warm days. It was delightful to come home from work this afternoon in daylight hours, sit on the back verandah with an icy cold vodka and lemonade and share it with hubby and friends. Enjoying the moment.

We're started doing site visits at work as part of our business readiness work for the project. I love getting out to the other sites, meeting new people and seeing how they do things. We've got 6 business divisions and roughly 170 sites across Australia, so while we won't get to all of them, we'll defintely get to some of them. Lots of potential, lots of people to meet.

Shorter post today (well maybe not that short), jobs to be done and some relaxing to do before I head off to bed. A mum's work is never done.

Cheers, Fi

Never sacrifice who you are just because someone has a problem with it


  1. So glad it wasn't worse!

    So glad you're enjoying summer :) -- while we're preparing for winter. Harumph!

  2. You got that right! A mums work is never done. We still make task lists and check them off in our sleep. Glad the "earth shake" didn't rattle too much. I was in California when the big one hit during World Series. Now that was a ride.

  3. Love that your hubby thought it was you shaking the bed.

    Like Louise, we're preparing for winter. The temperatures are falling :-(. But at least we're off to sunny Southern France next week.

    Can you tell, I'm excited?


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
