No, that's not quite true, my personal maid packed the car.
Oh, all right, I packed the car but not the above pocket rocket, the good old Holden.
I headed off on Friday morning and the further I got the gloomier it grew, hmmm, not looking too good.
The weather forecast was for loads of rain across the State and most of it falling in my corner of the globe.................
Anyway, I headed off full of excitement that goes with having an adventure.
I stopped in every little town I passed through and visited their Op shop hoping to find buried treasure. The first town I stopped in was Broadford and their Op shop was SHUT ON A FRIDAY.
Now, what's that all about? And it looked like the style Nazis had been there as well.......
My preferred Op shop doesn't look like an upmarket boutique.
My preferred Op shop is a bit jumbly with shelves and racks overflowing with 'things' .
I mean where is the thrill of the find if it's displayed on the wall with matching this and complimentary that.
You need to rummage and search and dig deep to find your treasure, well I do!
Main street of Daylesford mid afternoon, before the power blackout!!
I came prepared, you know how much I love this sort of weather (As long as you are prepared) but I managed to leave my umbrella back at my accommodation!
Grey and gloomy, but there were still plenty of people out and about.
There was a power blackout around 3pm! just as I was feeling the need for a coffee, hmmmmmmmm, bad timing.
The rain was very heavy and the friends I was spending the weekend with took me for a drive to see how much rain had fallen. This is the overflow from Daylesford Lake, a couple of days earlier it had been little more than a trickle.
Not sure of the history of this one, but it has a school house/ church look about it, very cute and they certainly would've appreciated having a wood heater this weekend!
I could have taken 100's of photos but it was a bit too wet and I didn't want to bore you (too much!)
I also picked up a couple of loaves of bread that they have baked one of them being Polenta and Pumpkin.
Made the mistake of cutting it when I got home and of course then I had to toast it and eat it ................
Whilst I was away alot of rain fell here. There was 117 mls in my rain gauge and there are floods nearby, I would venture to say that the drought may very well be over!
