It is the Melbourne Cup today not that you would know here - we have managed to forget to watch it once again. Very warm day and I am still working on those circles and Ian is working on the newsletter.
The downside of going away for nearly three weeks is that the tree roots get excited and cause havoc with our toilet system (as Lisa experienced....) - Ian got some special stuff to pour in but we have had over a week of the toilet not even thinking about flushing for quite some time and musical chattering in the bathroom. The plumber forgot to come last Thursday and we didn't want to remind him over the weekend in case he charged weekend rates so we have just quietly hung in and suffered. He turned up this morning and everything is back to normal - thank goodness.
Finally - here is the November newsletter for anyone having troubles getting the pdf from my email to work.
