Okay I know that we’re in a drought right now…I get that. But a little bit of rain has quite large implications for people who have no choice but to live out of town.

I didn’t choose to live 35km from Country Town 2.0. I have to live there as there is nowhere available in town.

Don’t get me wrong the quiet is nice.  The drive is lovely…but yesterday afternoon it poured down. The cherubs joked I wouldn’t be able to get home.

All I can say is good thing my suitcase was in my car, more so as I’d been away Monday and Tuesday nights for work meetings. Nothing like teaching until 1pm then driving 480km. Being in meetings all day Tuesday and then until 1pm Wednesday and driving 515km back home. Teaching all day Thursday and not being able to get home.

My gorgeous neighbours came in to pick up their son and get him home quicker than the bus would and suggested I stay in town. So I did…at the principal’s house, thankfully we get along and she’s happy for me to stay over…but she could choose not to.

I’m extremely grateful as I am off to Sydney for the weekend. Well for 24 hours…with a 4 hour drive after school today to the nearest major town and then an early flight to Sydney to watch the rugby.
