I have been a house sitter - looking after folks' homes while they travel. After driving around Australia on my own I have settled at Beachmere, north of Brisbane. Now it's time to write.

Time flies when you are having fun!
It is hard to believe that it is over a week since I posted. But of course, we have been busy. Bev and I travelled back and forth to various places of interest around Brisbane, went to the movies twice, and tried to rest. Actually I tried to study - but it was challenging.
The broken pot
One morning as we were sitting drinking coffee/tea we heard a loud crack, and it seemed something small hit the side of the house. Later when I went outside I discovered the cause. There is a big pot of Jade plant, and it is clearly pot bound - I suggest that the pot had just had enough and gave up - cracking all around. No other damage done, so I removed the broken pottery, and found a larger pot which was empty, and just lifted the jade and dropped it neatly into the bigger pot. I think it will be a long while before the roots protest again!
