Thunderstorms, Xmas, Fozz ....

If you live in the Sydney metro area -  how have you been handling this crazy weather!

Terrible thunderstorms every afternoon, lost power on Tuesday from around 3 in the afternoon till after midnight. Then on Thursday it was gone from 4 till 10.30pm.

Yesterday (Sunday) afternoon we had 6 severe thunderstorm warnings!

Can't remembering having six thunderstorms roll in over such a short period of time and ones strong enough to have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued by the BOM (Bureau of Met).

It's sunny at the moment - 10am on Monday but ... thunderstorms are again predicted for this afternoon!

Think I have finally finished my Xmas shopping and it's now all wrapped and packed into boxes to take to the recipients.  We're having lunch at a restaurant on Xmas day with my family then back to younger son's house for presents.

I'm a bit of a scrooge as far as Xmas goes.  I don't like it. Lost my mother 18 yrs ago at Christmas and it took the fun out of it.  Haven't even bothered with decorations for ages.

But this year my kids are coming down from Queensland so I've told my grandsons they can put up the tree when they get here - just hope it's survived being in the garage roof for years. Otherwise I might have to do a quick dash to Kmart to buy one.

Fozzie's been feeling the heat the last few months so we got him shaved down for summer.  He was so excited when the groomer finished. He was running all over the place, jumping up and down with this big grin on his face.

How about his cute beaded collar?

The groomer gave it to him - now he's Mr. Metrosexual .... lol.

I've noticed he is sleeping better and not as distressed so he might look strange but he is much happier.  Won't take that long to start growing back, knowing how long and thick his fur is.
