The cane toad topic has been temporarily abandoned due to the perfect sunny weather. Cane toads only come out to play when the ground is damp it seems. So the photo opportunity for them is on hold until the next shower of rain. And, as the barometer is rising, it seems like there will be no
wet weather for a while.
Meanwhile, in other ways, we are adapting to a different climate and a different way of life.
Much of the furniture we had in our ‘old’ house, in cooler Victoria, somehow seems out of place here on the Gold Coast.
Before we left Victoria we sold our Queen Anne style dining suite and now it seems we should sell the matching buffet, which I have loved (and used well) ever since I bought it from my mother’s (old) best friend some 20 years ago. It just doesn’t look right in this house.
Yesterday I ‘bit the bullet’ and advertised it on Gum Tree –supposedly a good place to sell second hand furniture (as well as many other things). So far, 36 people have looked at the ad., but we’ve had no phone calls from buyers. We can but hope.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
