Perth had some record amount of rain last night in the space of about an hour and I reckon almost all of it fell through our roof into our office. Just about to go to bed and I went in to pick up my phone and water was pouring in. Two giant buckets and almost all of our towels later. Luckily the box of Romeo and Guliette and things like that were safely out of the way. Ian had been up on the roof clearing out leaves before we went to NZ but that was for fire - certainly not expecting rain. And loads or lightning and thunder as well. No time for photos while holding up buckets.
And Harley came out about then from her fireplace for dinner and was not impressed that we did not give her our undivided attention. She did go and inspect the water on the floor in other places (only a little elsewhere) and then punished us at 5am with a lot of noise - as cats can do - out come the claws on the wooden floor. Barbara used to do that as well as scratching down our window when she wanted to come in and was too lazy to use her cat door. Dear o dear.
I discovered yesterday when I was web looking that both of my classes in Canada and New Zealand are full - that is very exciting stuff.
And of course - how could I forget to mention the cricket - first win for NZ in a test in Australia in 26 years. WOW! It's not as though we watch it or anything....
