3am in Perth and I'm about to pop back downstairs to make the last thing needed to take out tomorrow and then head to bed for a 7am wake up. A mother's work is never done lol.

Yep awake here too, Sydney. Raining here since 4am when I woke.

Awake here too, have been most of the night due to this,wind and rain belting the house.
I am on top of the range in Toowoomba.
100 mls of rain since 9am yesterday. It's DD's birthday today and I think her party may be cancelled as most people are coming from Brisbane

Ohh Jupiter thank you for reminding me...It's my dad's birthday today!! Happy Birthday to your DD...I hope she has a lovely day, whatever you end up doing

That's disappointing Jupiter- maybe postpone it?
My mum and dad are suppose to be driving up from Brisbane to visit me today but i dont think tas going to happen now- I'm 8 and 1/2 mths pregnant and it's my birthday tomorrow.

Yep I'm awake due to the rain and a hungry little boy who I'm now laying in bed feeding. I'm near Caboolture.
Jupiter - Happy birthday to your daughter. Sorry to hear about her party though.
Stanzy - Happy birthday for tomorrow.

Awake since 4.00 am. Miss 18 rang to see if I could drive her to work as she thought she might still be just over her zero alcohol limit. I have to keep reminding myself of what I did when I was her age.

Also been up since early hours...about 2.30 am, because of the rain. Very heavy, we were meant to be putting our roof up today, we were very excited about it, but now with this rain, it is going to have to wait. Such a waste of DH having the weekend off too. And if we got our roof on, we could have started to capture all this lovely rain

I just woke up and nearly stepped on my Miss 4 who is asleep on the floor beside my bed.
I'm in Brisbane and it doesn't sound too windy or rainy yet. We had a fair amount of rain and a bit of wind last night but I don't think it was as bad here as what the BOM were warning.

Stanzy, Happy Biryhday for tomorrow
Definitely thinking that we should cancel the party. DD will be so crushed, she has been looking forward to it for weeks. Her GP, Aunt, Uncles and cousins were all meant to be coming up for the day. It's the first time they have all been able to celebrate her birthday together as we have been away for so long.
Off to see if I can freeze DD's iced but not decorated Princess Castle Cake that I spent hours making yesterday.
And on a crazy note, our 4.5 month old Black Collie x Lab refuses to sleep inside during this weather. The only place he is happy is outside in his bed. He has a comfy bed under the patio and is sheltered from the wind and rain.
