Hooray, we have our replacement modem and are once again connected with the world. :-)
Well, what is there to say about the last week except weather, weather, weather. Rain, ferocious wind and hail on continuous repeat. Our shed held up brilliantly, and our only damage is a couple of trees down on our boundary. We didn't even lose power which is saying something, we fared better than a lot of people in Perth I think.
It has been rather chilly. Her Majesty is faring well though, apart from a quick dash outside for a wee, she rarely ventures out from her warm little nest, wallowing in its comforts.
In the meantime, we finally went and bought a water pump for our existing tank a couple of weeks ago. Up to now we have only had gravity fed water, which can get a little tedious when hand-watering plants with a trickle from a hose. Check out the water gushing from the hose now!
Ok, I think I've caught up with all the news now. The rain has stopped so I might wander out and see how the plants have all fared overnight.
