Well I was hoping for a relaxing Sunday. Maybe a nap. But NO it was not to be. My upstairs neighbours decided it was high time they drilled and hammered and generally clanked around.
In my frustration I decided to go and clean my balcony. As much as we all love a Jacaranda tree, it is not the wisest choice to have in close proximity to one’s balcony. Winter usually finds me tip-toeing through the apartment trying not to crunch up the Jacaranda leaves more than they already are. No matter how careful I am with the balcony door, the leaves always end up inside. This is not what I had in mind with bringing the outdoors in. So out I go and clean the balcony. A bit of sweeping, a bit of mopping and voila, tidy clean balcony. How nice! Clean and fresh, think I will just sit out here and enjoy this moment.
So, coffee and magazine at the ready, just as I get comfortable, I am serenaded by the dulcet tones of yet a different neighbour with his electric sander. So besides the noise bombardment, my nice clean balcony is now covered in a layer of sawdust.
This really is the lucky country!~
To cheer me up I went in search of my long lost travel photos. If I don't find them soon, my ‘IF IT’s TUESDAY’ posts may dwindle. I did though find these. Taken approx 9yrs ago at one of my local beaches that skirt Botany Bay in Sydney. [if i was more patriotic i would say 'girt']
I hope you enjoy these and remember, when the sawdust chips are down;
LIFE’S A BEACH

I’m off to vacuum up the crunchy bits!!
