July, where did you go? August, how did you get here so fast? I'm not ready for a new month :) But Life doesn't ask your permission to keep on keeping on - which is a good thing. It is a glorious day as I type this - bluest of blue skies (or if you're under 40 - 'skys'), no clouds and a slight, happy little chill in the sunny air. I love a Brisbane winter!
July was all doctors and dentists and tests, with more to come. Hopefully not falling off my perch yet :=) We went away for a night (an awards' night for Mr P.), and enjoyed the lovely cold night up on the Range. Also caught up with a friend there. We love Toowoomba, Mr P.'s hometown. Funnily enough, a friend who lives in Tasmania but grew up in Toowoomba, was here at the same time. And another friend who moves between Tassie and Queensland is up here too. I bet our third Tassie friend is on her way soon :)
