Brrrr. How awfully cold Chookie.
We had another massive storm yesterday afternoon. We got 36mm of rain but parts of Perth got over 50mm. DD had a very long trip home. It usually takes her about 30 minutes, last night it took her 2 hours. Her car showed that she averaged 6kph on the trip home. There was quite a lot of flooding round. Our gutters over flowed and the drains couldnít cope, but it eventually all drained away.

Wow, thatís a slow trip home for DD cookie. We have rain due mid week next week, I hope itís not as bad as that as I have outings and things planned for every day.

Cookie, that rain was on the news in Victoria. 
Still cold here. Our gardeners arrive early and the frost is still hick on the grass.  They make them tough in Ballarat.
We are enjoying the Tour of France tv . Beautiful scenery and very gutsy riders. Tried to stay awake to watch Ashley win but fell asleep.

Freezing here just now as well.

A city dog got into our chooks yesterday, fortunately all survived and they eventually found their way back home. Locked them into the hen house last night so hopefully the are all recovered and settled this morning but I think I will leave them in their run all day so that they can get used to a safe environment again.

Must admit, the dog wasn't the owner's fault, they had booked into a dog friendly accommodation, but the dog found a hole under the fence and decided chasing the neighbour's chooks was the height of his holiday fun!

Iím glad the chooks are ok Marina. Wasnít it wonderful having Ash Barty win? I didnít even try and stay up.
We are forecast another storm with lots of wind and rain tomorrow. Iím fine with the rain, but not the wind.
The rain from Friday ran into our shed.  DH has had to take all the cars out of it and mop up all the water. I suggested we try to do something to prevent it but as itís the first time in 17 years hopefully it wonít happen too often.

You are right about Ash Barty, Cookie, what a lady.  She is a real model to everyone, on every level.

Tip.  I have just discovered this. ( some have probably already worked it out ) when you want to copy a recipe from the iPad, press the print icon and the recipe will be condensed. You can then take a screenshot. Most recipes also give the nutritional values, although some donít.

Cold and wet today.

Yes I do that too Chookie so that I only get what I want, some sites make it hard to copy their recipes.

I didn't know that Chookie, thanks. I usually go and print it, or photograph it and pop it into Snap recipes.

That is strange, I think I accidentally discovered something similar in Android yesterday but it wasn't until I read this again today that I realised it was something that could be similar.  I must try experimenting today and see if it works.  If anyone is interested in this option let me know and, if it works as I think it will, I'll put it on here.

I think we are heading for another lockdown.  Feel like we have been in lockdown for 18 months. We are lucky as we have space but feel for others , especially for those in flats.
Not quite as cold today .
Spent some time yesterday to try and understand our electricity bill. Had a nice surprise when I discovered that we have been feeding into the grid, even though we donít get a lot of sun in the Winter.

That's good news re the electricity Chookie. We no longer get a rebate on our solar panels as we have had them for 10 years. However all the money we got for feeding back to them we left in the account, so we shouldn't get a bill for a while. I usually use the most power during the day anyway so that will come off the solar panels.

I'm a bit spooked by this Delta variant of the Covid. It seems so much more vicious than the other. Covid hasn't worried me a great deal but I am becoming concerned at the spread now. We have been holding off with our vaccinations as my family has a history of clotting.( cousin and grandmother). Now if we get the AZ will we be able to get the second? A bit of a muddle. I think you are right about the lockdown Chookie, I really feel for Victorians, you have had so much time locked down.

It continues to be cold and wet here.

Yes, here we are back into lockdown again (and just after I had made an appointment with my hairdresser ... hopefully they will be open again by the time my appointment comes around).  It was inevitable once that family and those removalists came into Victoria from NSW and spread COVID around.  You can't fool round with this Delta variant and Dan Andrews had to lock us down to stop the spread.  I am accepting of the lock down, I am not happy too have it hit yet again, but I am still covinced a short sharp one is the best option.

DH and I had our first AZ vaccination about six weeks ago, our second one is due in about four weeks.

Yes, here we go again.  Hope 5 days  is enough. Put a home delivery order into Woolies in anticipation. GD coming home from Uni.  She has hardly been there this year. DS who lives in Melbourne is worried  the GC arenít getting enough exercise due to the lockdowns.
Like Marina and Cookie , I think this Delta bug is frightening .  We are due to have our second shot next week.
We celebrated French National day. I cooked Crepes, RAL played the La Marseillaise on uTube.
