25 January 2012- I know there are more pictures from this day, but they not to be found, so here is the one and only one I have. Rain on the ground outside work, waiting for the taxi who never came. Never calling Yellow cabs in Brisbane again.
24 January 2012- The rain has been fairly constant in Brisbane for the last week or so, and it was a particulary stormy day, and evening. We went downstairs to check that all was ok, but the lighting wasn't great, so the camping lanterns came out

22 January 2012, 8 postcards witing to be sent. I had been neglecting the standard postcrossing process in favour of the round robins, but dove back in with these. Now I just have to wait until they arrive.
Received 8 January 2012 from the Netherlands. An awesome modern version of TinTin that someone had waiting in their collection. The random and the treasured cards are something I really enjoy about postcrossing. Postcard id- NL-917734

21 January 2012- One of the souvenirs from a previous Japan trip was this ceramic coffee filter holder. Now I am no longer dependent on a noisy espresso machine, or a messy (explody) plunger or even the fantastic (but plenty of work) siphon, and espeially NOT the dreaded instant. I prefer this method for my coffee, it is a tidy way to do it too.
17 January 2012 - I caught up with a friend after work, and while I was waiting for Greg to pick me up, I had a little mini-drama to watch. A highway cop (the red car) pulled over a taxi that didn't have working tailights.
15 January 2012- We spent the night at Wellington Point (after checking on the pool) and got up at the crack of dawn to take pictures of the sunrise. Which was a bit of a non-event because it was mostly obscured by clouds. Not sure I can get up that early again.

14 January 2012 - on our way down a ruralish road, in Rochedale, the car had a massive flat (big enough to be unrepairable the next day). One of the things that irks me about the current car is the lack of decent spare. All we have is a dount, which just looks bizarre. I know there is no room, but this is one of those things that is not fun, and a decent sized wheel would have made me a lot happier. pictured here, the old tyre.
13 Janaury 2012- This looks a lot weirder in photo than in reality. This is my random sewing stuff cardboard container (industrial size cardboard tube), holding some toy stuffing and a roll of quilt wadding
