Home sweet home before the drought

The garden was flourishing then but now the grass is almost dead and the flowers unhappy. We did have light rain for a day and it snowed in Ballarat and on the outskirts of Melbourne - Crazy weather as it is near to summer.
It's an ordinary house, weatherboard underneath some kind of fake brick. Some former owner put up a name-plate 'The Manor' - so I don't know what he or she was thinking!

One trouble with beta is I must sign in before commenting.I forgot, Love your house and garden, and your story. I will be in Ballarat judging ponies on Sunday, I think from snow it will be quite hot.

Oh I forgot, no we live near Victor Harbor, about an hour and a quater on a good day from Adelaide. Millicent is much further away.

Well, Penny, I hope it is not snowing in Ballarat on Sunday! Actually it only snows there once in five or more years I think. Today is nice weather.

The reference to Victor Harbour in my Mum's story was I think, that they had stayed in Victor Harbour and the car ran into gravel near a road grader on their way back into Victoria. They were okay though except for a cut tongue or something. Dad had to have egg-flips for a few weeks! That was many many years ago of course but it was a family story told many times.

The house suits us very well - 1930s style I think and we have a very large all purpose living room - L shaped - good for Fiji parties.
When Peceli retired we needed to buy our own place as we'd always lived in a manse for free. The kids chose this house because in the back yard there are two bungalows and a basketball ring and lots of cement. They were fanatics about Michael Jordan then.
