Expanse, maybe spoilers 

I have binged 2 seasons of The Expanse and it is Good™.

I do have an excuse to buy a reciprocating saw now, though. Handy against tree roots, zombies, and middle managers.

My lower back is very glad I am not a builder or plumber for a living.

I think I managed about 3 linear metres to a depth of about a foot. One spade blade wide. Tough going.

The drain is fucked and needs to be completely replaced. The fun* part of digging the trench is making my way through several decades of tree roots in the tight space behind the shed.

Spent the day digging a trench to try to get in to fix the old stormwater drain.

Said friend also needed a charging cable for their iPhone. I happen to have a gazillion cables from various conferences, so I found one.

Jnr has a friend over to play, so no work will be occurring for the next few hours.

Everything is terrible, so I am choosing to spend today unfucking a corner of my habitat.

I suppose one day I will miss the constant stream of noise that comes from my child at the moment.

Burgers and camembert were both on clearance special today, apparently, so I am now full of *urp* cheap fancy cheeseborger.

JP boosted

It is raining here again and there are currently no emergency warnings in the entire state of Victoria.

Apparently it's this or the 75th run through of the Harry Potter audiobooks.

I love* hearing the same 12 songs all day long.

Another great* thing about school holidays is having commercial radio on because Jnr insists.

Parents are now at the bored stage of wait and watch. Puppies are terrorising the indoor plants and generally being a nuisance. All good things, considering.

I see why it's called 'clucky' when chickens are broody. Big increase in clucking with our two layers who are both broody at the moment.

Closest fires to parents downgraded from Emergency. A pause, not a full reprieve yet, but good news nonetheless.

This is out the front of Mum and Dad's place near Merimbula right now. It's so dark the streetlights are on. At midday.

Mum texted me. They're still at home near Merimbula. Sky is dark from smoke. Closest fires are still a fair way away.
