In Brisbane this week, we felt the affects of Tropical Cyclone Marcia in the form of drenching rain. Nothing life threatening for us, but it meant almost five days of bunkering down at home with our kiddies. To say we all had cabin fever was an understatement. The kids didn't do too badly really and relished the hours of kids movies, shopping centre playgrounds and properly pulling out all of their toys. The sunshine this morning was a welcome sight as we all escaped out into the backyard.
