Coastal towns in south Queensland has been hit by six tornadoes in the past 48 hours. While residents of affected low-lying areas contemplated on evacuating their homes on Australia Day, the rest of the country gorged on barbies and downed beers and drifted afloat giant Havaianas floaters (Look up: The Havaianas Australia Day Thong Challenge).
My daughter Luna and I are currently staying at a self-contained studio in Brisbane's Kangaroo Point. Us too, had a drenched Australia Day. But we stayed safe indoors.
Ten days ago, we moved in this studio after three weeks of bedsurfing and floorsurfing. We scored a sweet deal through a voucher that we fished online. Never mind the teensy space and the frequently inebriated college students that populate the building, we got a balcony that overlooks the historic Shafston House and Brisbane River! Plus a supermarket and a playground are just a couple of blocks down the road.
Three days into our stay, the hubby left for a series of conferences in the United States. The result of which will significantly influence our grand scheme for the next few months. I anxiously wonder when will the waiting game end.
Meanwhile, Luna and I are on an extended shindig in our studio. What else are we gonna do anyway with that insane ex-cyclone Oswald pounding on our glass door? Now folks, Luna raises her cup of Solo while I raise my cup of Australian Pink rosé... Cheers!
Happy Australia Day!
