What about me?
Well I am cheating on fashion and furniture with wellington boots and umbrellas!
It is really out of control. There is no other way to explain it.
A good friend who has been covering the floods on the ground as a news reporter (Channel 9 A Current Affair - Rebecca Bergh just in case you wonder the high level people I mix with ;) wrote on facebook:
"Summer... you have so far beeen a catastrophic disappointment"
I could not have summed it up better myself. I have been to the beach twice this summer. Once to Noooosa with Rebecca and family (post HERE) and to Bribie over the Christmas hols while the sun shone for an afternoon.
Mold is building momentum on the botched up 1950's add on area of my house and it is making me feel slightly ill. My puppy dogs smell like vomit. It really is disgusting.
Over the weekend I was involved with some sandbagging at my friends house. (see her flood story HERE) Well actually I was doing no sandbagging, I was just watching and pointing and oowwwing and aaahhhhing. Give me a break, I had just replaced one of the four pair of shoes which are now ruined and I took them out for an inaugural wear. I was not getting those sparkling babies wet! I did totally pimp her playroom though!
I am so worried for Gympie. Really worried. Pray and pray hard everyone.
So to lighten the mood I thought I would show you what I am lusting for.

So as you can see, all I can think about is wet weather gear and combatting mold and how much my electricty bill will be with my clothes dryer going 10 hours a day.... when I just want to be doing something like this....
