If it's good enough for the royals.  Newborn dressed in a bonnet -  yes bonnet - and a white SHAWL.
 Newborns are taken shopping or wherever quite uncovered, flung over the parents arm and exposed to the elements.  It wouldn't go astray to be  protected from bugs and say, the tragedy of whooping cough.
 A few months on the baby is covered up, usually in long trousers, jeans or ubiquitous leggings.
William is never seen in clothes more suitable for adults. There is a time for childhood. How else is a Boris Johnson persona produced?
 These words are heresy, against the tide. But I am not a royalist, support vaccinations and am not for mollycoddling the offspring.

Post-apocalyptic hide away.  Then further along and higher on the road less travelled.

 When stormy weather was subsiding last week.  Billboards and signs took a beating.
  A hugh effort still took over a week to restore all power supplies so widespread was the damage.
  I guess we are fortunate that this incident occurred before privatisation went ahead or was it a bigger effort to make sure all was ready for that day? Now there is talk of controls and cheaper electricity.  Obviously all this electricity business is not clear to me.

Do Not Disturb

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

South coast free of weather problems.
It's so green it's even unaustralian.

The calm and bird calls seem strange two days post east coast low.
Bits and pieces of vegetation are scattered all over, large tree branches and whole trees have come down throughout town which makes it difficult to restore power despite extra crews arriving from other places.
  We never lost power supply, it has been said before, there is a reason for our good luck because of some infastructure on the same line.
  Many school kids are having an extension of the holiday break as schools have not reopend.
  People have difficulty living with uncertainity. They have expectations.
Just imagine the results after a full blown cyclone.
