You're doing much better than here in Ballarat Victoria.  Horrible weather, cold and raining made all the worse by restrictions.

How are you Libby?  I think winter in inland Australia is usually a bit on the chillier side and doesn't Ballarat get hot in the summer?  I don't mind the cold weather but I totally dislike cold AND damp weather. 

Tasmania is almost back to normal with most restriction eased.  Easier to do here being an island.  Border may open later in the month.

Are  you settling in now you have returned?

Have settled back very well and made the right decision to come to Victoria where one of my daughter's lives.  When I was trying to decide what the best decision for me should be I was in a dark place after Roger's death.  My mind was all over the place and I made some stupid choices but 2 years on life is kinder and being near my family was certainly the right way to go. People told me not to make any decisions for at least a year and in hindsight (wonderful word) I should have listened.  I am a lucky person in many ways and appreciate the path I finally chose. We spent 2 weeks touring Tasmania which was wonderful and  loved it.  The scenery stunning and most of all people were friendly and helpful.  I can see why you love it. We really want to come again and see more but with the way things are right now it will have to wait.  I hope all of you are fit and well and if you have elderly relatives they are safe.  What a terrible time it is and not over yet but I guess it's history repeating itself.  All the best to all your readers.

Yesterday was bitterly cold but sunny.  Parts of Tasmania have had snowfalls.  Friends travelling around Tassie sent these photos this morning.  The higher up areas will have had much heavier snowfalls.

Looks beautiful despite being cold.  Ballarat Victoria had flurries of snow this morning but nothing settled.  Really cold but sun trying to come through.  Keep warm everyone. Have to say I do miss a warm cosy woodburner.  Rented house only has gas heating which sends me to sleep!

This photo was taken yesterday in the south of Tasmania.  Up here on the north west coast it's a lot milder today - quite pleasant really and haven't even seen snow on the nearby hills.

Mild sunny day here.  No wind at all.  Just come back from a walk with our dog.  These are a couple of off the beaten track walks we enjoy.  The seagulls enjoy having the beach to themselves.  All we could hear were the birds twittering and singing.  When we go early in the mornings we see plenty of wallabies and rabbits but no sign of them later on.

Lovely pictures @Toots big difference between the North and the South this week weather wise it seems, though the pics of the South snowy scenes look beautiful too. ūüėä

I think you are heading for Launceston?  Launceston also had a snowfall.  First proper snow in 50 years.  It was gone by midday.  Photo taken last night. Totally different weather where we live but we are at sea level close to the Bass Strait.

Another lovely pic, bet that was a bit of a shock after 50 years. Yes Toots Launceston will be our starting point been researching lots from here and have visited various areas before but we are still open to where we will end up. We want more rural than city but acess to city for work. At the moment we would take anywhere in Tassie over being stuck here. The North coast looks beautiful and some great rural areas up there too if we could get work we are very open minded.

July was the driest on record and up until today we still haven't had rain BUT persistent rain is forecast for the next few days.

It has been raining steadily here since yesterday.  Good for the garden type of rain.  Supposed to be a wet weekend too.

Ho hum, 32C for downtown Ball Bay, with fluffy white cumulous clouds studding a brilliant blue sky.

..................  but you don't mind hot weather Bob.  Anything over 25 is too warm for me.  Much prefer the cooler climate.

It was lovely first thing this morning then the wind got up followed by a  downpour.  Now the sun is shining again.  I don't think we get settled weather until later this month.

I'm with Toots - 25 is my upper limit.¬† ¬†I get the grumps above that.¬† ¬†Guess that's why we're here and you're there.¬†¬†ūüėÄ
