    38C here and another storm expected overnight so I've been taking advantage of the heat and dry to sand down our teak table and oil it thoroughly.   Next I'll be making sure chairs and pots are safely stashed and that plants are staked.  

    We've had 2 trees down in the paddock across the road after Saturday's storm which also lifted one entire window box, dumped the contents on the grass and then blew the container to kingdom come.  Haven't seen it since.   In Monday's storm we lost a 15 yr old parrotia persica to lightening strike and it flattened all sorts of shrubs and perennials when it landed.   Humph.   Don't want any more of that thanks.

    In between all that I'm making spiced blackcurrant jelly.  Bumper crop this year.
