Wet Wet Wet

It's driving us crazy, we are all in a spin. Yes I am aware that where we live the "wet season" is inevitable, it shows it's face each and every year, usually without fail. It hangs on, turning every thing to mush. Everything gets that icky damp feel and I cant even begin to tell you what it feels like to walk on floors that feel as though they have never seen a mop in their entire life time.

And ants......
What the !
They are every where, the kitchen, the bathrooms and last night for some reason my bedside draws. (no there was no sneaky bar of chocolate hidden away from the boys)
They are driving me nuts, I am at my wits end and it seems that I am driving everyone else in the household crazy with my constant yelling for the bug spray (all natural of course)

The "big wet" this year has hit a little later than usual, and it's teasing us, allowing the sun to peak through and shows us it's glowing self only to disappear within moments allowing the clouds to open up and send us buckets of rain once more.
I am not the only one climbing the walls. The boys are over it, hubby is over it, and enough is enough.
I am tired of mud, it sticks to shoes and gets walked through the house (its to hard to remove shoes before entering obviously) and thanks to a naughty poodle that has decided that digging up the back yard is a great way to pass the day away, my BBQ area and beautiful glass doors are going to need scrubbing beyond anything that I can imagine right now.

Sigh........

I'm whining, I know. Literally writing about nothing. Maybe the rain has finally penetrated my brain stopping me from making sense and writing something productive.
The rain will clear, taking with it the fuzzy that is my head space. The sun will shine and everything will be lush, green and beautiful once more.

Oh and did you know that we are now currently on a cyclone watch !
YAY.....could things get any better LOL
Stay out to sea please, I have a lot of better things to do then to be cooped up inside much longer.


Linking up with lovely Jess for another fun filled IBOT :)

  1. I am so over it too, would just love to hang my washing on the line again, instead of having my family room look like a chinese laundry. :) #IBOT

    1. How nice would it be to hang the washing out in the sunshine ! You are not alone in having a chinese laundry in your home.

  2. Oh no, there really can be too much of a good thing. Don't worry about complaining, enough really is enough. And a cyclone?! geez!

    1. We really have had to much rain, I hope that it clears soon and allows the sun to sneak through for at least a day or two.

  3. Oh I feel for you up there. I think I'd be feeling pretty depressed about now. Perhaps you need to get one of those ultra bright heat lamps, lie under it with the Beach Boys playing and pretend you are somewhere far away.

    1. It does get a little depressing after a while. The trouble is that we are complaining up here about to much rain while there are so many other places that are in desperate need for it. I would gladly share with them no questions asks. :)

  4. I hear ya! We've had over 700mm of rain on the Gold Coast since the end of January. It's just ridiculous. Can count on 1 hand the number of times we've seen the sun and on 2 hands the number of days it hasn't rained at all in almost 40 days! going certifiably INSANE!

  6. Send it to Darwin!! We've had a painfully dry wetseason and they are saying its over now, two months early! QLD and WA keep sucking away our weather!
    It's ridiculous that we are the ones who want it, and yet we're missing out, while you guys are over it, and it just keeps coming!

    1. If I could put the rain in a post pack and send it your way Jess I would not hesitate !! Sad to think that while we are here complaining of too much of a good thing, others are crying out for what we have in abundance. Hope the rain heads your way and the sun peeps through for us xx
