    Busy day today but fun was had.  Poor turnout for mosaic - traffic jams and queues caused by people queuing to fil their tans ahead of a general strike on Thursday.  The refineries serving this are ahave already had protesters blocking them so some petrol stations already short.   

    All the ones I passed on the way home had queues and our nearest has no diesel so OH has gone looking a bit further.  We need fuel for tomorrow's trip to the car showrooms to test potential replacements for Harry Zafira who was killed off by a dozy truck driver at the end of September.  

    Lots of black ice warnings today with temps barely gettig to 5C despite bright sunshine.   Perishing now that it's dark and we have beautiful starry skies.

    Been freezing all day here although the sun was lovely I don’t think the ice melted on the water butts.
    OH has just gone out for his walk, he loves walking the lanes on dark nights.  Think he’s a vampire really 😀

    I think you’re the only one Dove. We’ve just got back from Canberra and sitting down with a cuppa.

    Morning all. 
    Awake again for several hours in the night. 
    Totally exhausted.

    Wow - where did that day go 😱. Sun getting ready to set here and I feel like I’ve only just got up 🤪.  

    Met a friend for coffee this morning - she is nearly as chatty as me so we missed the fact that our 2 hour parking tickets had expired and had to hotfoot it back to the car park to beat the red hot traffic wardens.

    Then a trip to SM and Homebase, some housew&&k 🤫 and just got time for a cuppa before I scrub up for the work (volunteer gardening) Christmas Party.  Feel a bit of a fraud since I’ve been there less than a month, but they insisted that I am now part of the team ......which is very sweet.
