Mid afternoon, Mr Beloved returned to The Room Of Migrainous Hell (aka the bedroom) looking pale and shaky.
“What’s wrong”? I asked, ever perceptive, even in my tortured state.
He held his hands apart about 1.5 metres.
“Brown. Back of shed. I dropped some wood and saw it slither past….”
We’re not sure if it was an Eastern Brown, King Brown, or some other (venomous) snake – but as Mr Beloved says, they’re all part of the genus ahgettawayfromme.
Yep – no more winter in Toowoomba, this year Mother Nature has jumped right past Spring to Summer! There are already bushfires and today was around the 30C mark again (that’s 86 F for you furriners) and it’s supposed to only drop to 17C / 63 F overnight.
