I'm sitting here getting used to my smaller computer desk and the fact that my dear hubby isn't sitting back to back with me. Now, when we are busy on our computers we hardly say a word to each other, but it just seems strange we are not in the same room. But I know once we get everything set up in here I am going to love it!

We worked all day long on this project, filling the living room up with items from the two rooms so that we could get the furniture moved, then I can go through everything else and try my best to downsize. DH is really happy in his new space (Dad's room) and doesn't even mind he will be sharing it with a hide-a-bed for guests!. As long as he has his computer, all his computer fixing equipment, parts and software, and a TV he is happy! I have my computer and sewing desk set up and tomorrow we will start with the cake decorating area. Violet has her office bed (she has one in every room) beside me and is sleeping like an angel. The day was very traumatic for her as she hates moving stuff around and UPS beeps (there were a lot of them today).

This morning we went for our walk...quite a long walk and we got caught in the rain

We had coats on but our hair got quite wet, we stopped under a tree but it was not the best cover and it was very windy and raining quite heavy...it was still enjoyable though

Then for lunch we decided to go to the local chippie...we got a seafood box with crumbed prawns, calamari, battered butterfish and chips...very tasty! We ate it in the park close by as it has cleared up by this time

Now we are enjoying some lemon cheesecake and a cup of coffee

kylie, i wonder if the butterfishyou ate is the same we have here. normally ours are pretty small, so they're often used for bait.

what are crumbled prawns?

Hey Tom

With the butterfish, it is quite a large fillet. It is also known as Mulloway

Not crumbled prawns LOL...crumbed prawns that are deep fried, they were coated in Panko crumbs

I remember going outside to play in the rain and watch the lightning as a kid. I wouldn't do that now. Too many people have been hit by lightning around here. I'm tall and wide. I'd make a good target for it. lol
When we moved to Florida from up north, the huge lightning storms were new to us and so beautiful we all - Mom, Dad, 3 small kids - would take lawn chairs out on the driveway to watch the displays on the far-off night horizon. This was in the early 70's. These days we'd probably be arrested for child endangerment.

What I'm doing now (I'd better justify being on this thread) is planning to fix a board on the wood fence out back this morning. And pull weeds before it rains again this afternoon.
