Thank you to everyone who has posted lovely comments on my blog...I really appreciate every one and try to respond to all of them but.....as a learner blogger (and I think I'll be using this excuse for a while yet!!) I haven't exactly found the best way to respond to them....so generally.....THANK YOU!!
I have been asked about the photo on my header......being the extraordinary photographer that I am.....
*hu hummmm* !!!... I can actually claim credit for this one, believe it or not!! We live opposite a cane paddock and this was their burn last year....I took numerous photos and this one stood out the best to me ... shows just what our district's about! And yes, it does get a bit hot when the fire is roaring, but it's only for about 10-15 minutes once a year and I sometimes wonder whether I'm a closet pyromaniac 'cause I love 'em!!!
Just like everyone else, I've taken some photos showing the dust from our place in North Queensland. My photos don't do it justice.
The first one shows an afternoon shot on Friday, about 5pm and the other, a morning shot on Saturday....shows the cane paddock from our driveway better than the dust!!!! (The cane hasn't been burned yet!)
We went for a drive today down to Bowen to have lunch with friends and just generally 'have a bit of a life' outside of work, work, work! Yes, I am on hol's but my poor hubby is working 12-14 hour days, six days a week and only has Sunday off.....a good marriage saver...no time to argue!!!! (hehehe)....but I have been missing him a bit.
