Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jog

We arrived home yesterday afternoon to thankful dogs, chooks, ducks (loving the weather!), cows and calves and water rushing down the road to greet us.  Thankfully we live on a ridge, even so, we could not be wetter.

The kids immediately tore outside with new toys.

The background showing the state of weather in our parts still.

Still in Christmas dresses, the girls took turns flying Sarah's newly acquired kite.  A double-stringer, with near cyclonic conditions, it took quite some holding.

With faces craning skywards, they took turns at taking the reins.

While others looked on.

Then headed towards the crash-site.

With Christmas gumboots receiving a good workout.

Smiles all round.

Until Mum starts calling from the verandah.
Get inside you kids, get out of your good clothes!!!


  1. Aaah, this post reminds me of my carefree childhood. Great photo of the girls looking skyward.

  2. Wow I keep watching the news re rain in QLD. Incredible to think so much rain has fallen - perfect for new gumboots.

  3. Love the new gum boots. It just seems ridiculously wet in Qld. I hope the rain stops soon.

  4. Great to know that you live on a ridge and are out of the floodwaters. I got your blog from Linda of Alberta. Where abouts actually do you live - I am suspecting up "Rocky" way?
    It MUST stop soon surely, the cost to us all is mounting by the minute.
    Great blog, Fiona, and most informative for the viewers.
