The Week That Was…

Seeing Opera Australia perform Madama Butterfly last night all the way out west in Mount Isa – brilliant!


Cold snap! Just in time for curling up under a blanket on the couch for some weekend reading. Speaking of… #rebeccabuddyread starts on Sunday!

What I’m watching next:

While I’m not keen on this becoming another series strung out beyond the book, Meryl Streep is a big drawcard for me and I’m also just a little curious about where they’re going to take this story. Liane Moriarty was involved in the project again, so I’m trusting in that. And there’s always Nicole Kidman to fall back on.


What I’m reading right now:

Until next week… 😊☕📚

  1. What’s a cold snap in Mt Isa like? I’m curious! Haha I am still living with intermittent heating here so currently I’m curled up on the couch under 2 fluffy blankets. Good for reading, I guess. But I don’t like being cold and I especially don’t like being cold in my house 😦

    • Current temps are minimum 8 to 10 with a maximum of around 23. It’s the wind at present that’s making it chilly though. Thank goodness the sun is still shining. We just dress with layers, but it’s not cold in the sense that I’d turn on heating. Earlier in the winter, our last cold snap, was colder. 3 to 5 in the mornings with only 18 as a maximum. Again with the desert wind though, so we were feeling it. I was turning on the heating for an hour each morning with those minimums, just to help rally the troops out of bed!


      • It’s all about what you’re used to. 23 sounds lovely right now (it’s 13 here atm, by comparison!) but yeah, if those overnight and morning temps are dipping, you’re going to feel it! And I know the desert can get cold, with those nights and the winds, so I’m curious what it’d be like. I’d take the days though. There’s very little in the way of sunshine around here atm and it’s beginning to take its toll on me. It’s grey and dull today and quite dark inside – I really should get up and put the light on but I’m warm under my blankets.

      • I remember those dull grey days from growing up there. After living in Queensland with our sunny winters, I’m not sure I could deal with all the grey all the time. The last time I went to Victoria was in the winter, windy and grey the whole time, and I felt it getting me down. I was there for somber reasons too, but I couldn’t wait to leave, to be honest.


      • Yeah, spending a couple weeks at my parent’s in July made me wonder why the heck I moved away. I find I get to about now in winter in Victoria and start to get pretty over it. Unfortunately winter doesn’t really end here until about October lol.
