Australia's Tsunami Warning, The Cubby & Pesach

Right now though, the whole east coast of Australia from Cooktown in QLD right down to Tasmania is on Tsunami alert following an earthquake off the Solomon Islands which apparently measured 8.1. Noone seems to know much about it at the moment, they think that it will fizzel out and waves will roll in at around 20cm.

Even with this prediction, people in Cooktown in Queensland are leaving any low lying areas and heading for safety on higher ground. The bureau says a tsunami could hit Cooktown from 9.31am, Cairns from 9.49am, Gladstone from 11.39am, Mackay from 11.44am.

From what I have seen on the news this morning, I don't think anything will happen but it is good to see there is an awareness considering the last Tsunami episode.

Anyway, on to our weekend here in the middle of nowhere - a few photos of the girls from the weekend playing in their cubby house. As many of you know, Aaron and I run a Web and Graphic Design business, well about 2 years ago we designed a website for a Sydney cubby house builder, we asked that in return he build for us, deliver and install (remember we live 5 hours from Sydney!) his biggest and best cubby he could make.

Well, this is it, as you can see it is huge and pretty fancy, he also included a beautiful pink fibreglass slide! The girls love to play in it and the weather on the weekend was just way to nice to spend the day inside.

Also, because I don't know when I will get a chance to post again - I still have a lot to prepare for Pesach, I would like to wish my Jewish readers a safe and peaceful Pesach.

Chag Sameach!

.... Just another day ....

You got paid well!
Can you take it with you when you move?

We thought it was a pretty good deal!

Yes we will be taking it with us, it will be a big job to move it. Also, because of the size of the backyards in Sydney, it will probably have to come off the stilts (sit straight on the ground) or a neighbour might complain about it.

That is simply an amazing little house the girls have got there! And BTW, they all look like they've gotten so tall!

Be well, and happy Pesach!
