Bugger!!

Imagine, if you will for a moment, when you finally track down the absolute creme da la creme of bobcat drivers (yes there is such a thing) and he fixes your long steep driveway after it has been four wheel drive only for over a year. What the man can do with a small machine and some gravel is art I tell ya.

Imagine your excitement to drive up said driveway on Friday after work ever so smoothly- unlike the usual  bumping, sliding and praying that takes place.

Imagine being able to tell your mates without AWD/4WD vehicles that they won't have to do a cardio workout to come and visit.

Imagine now it is Monday morning - knowing that it has pretty much rained for the last three days non stop. Not just rained - poured  and I mean it- may- possibly- flood- again- rain... and to watch that driveway slide away...............

Imagine.


I think I need retail therapy.

Don't forget my giveaway here.

Sigh.

  4. hello, i hope the sun shines into your life this week..catching up on your blog reminds me of when my daughter was admiring my sketchbook the other week. I had to tell her that it actually wasn't easy at all. And being creative can be painful + a struggle! But i guess the good times out weigh the bad.. x

  5. No way! How unfair is that? You know, I'd be outside lying on said new driveway to prevent the gravel washing away!

  11. I've just been scanning backwards through your blog (school hols are taking up so much time!!) and I've never seen a firefly - how cool. Sorry about your friend's Dad - hope you're feeling better, please don't stop blogging. That's a cool zombie softie book! You have a sweet dog. And back to the rain and the driveway - oh no, bugger, bugger, bugger!
