And here comes another one!

Yep, now we're on cyclone alert for Cyclone Jacob. It's still waaaaay off the coast but all along the coast is on the very first of the alerts which basically means "watch the news and keep and eye on what it's doing".
George is now quite a way inland and lots of towns/communities are on Red Alert, the highest level which means that the cyclone is imminent. Although it is weakening a little it is still a Category 3 so it hasn't been downgraded at all which is worrying when you consider how far away from the ocean it has moved without losing much strength. We have spoken with/texted all the friends in Port Red Dirt and they are all fine with only minor damage to fences, gates, trees, etc.
In cheerier news (and just cause I think it's cute) I finally got Offspring #1's school 'nu-niform' shirts last week but it took until earlier this week for us to be on-time enough to stop and take a quick photo before running out the door. He loves his whole uniform, mostly because he looks like everyone else in his class - aaahhh, I'm enjoying that because I know we'll be fighting about uniforms before too long.

#1 insisted on crossing his arms and legs for this photo. Nothing would get him to stand up straight so he looks a little 'crookedy'

I just LOVE this pic. This is my beautiful happy little boy at his best.

I'll be back tomorrow with some cookies we made while we were waiting for the cyclone that didn't arrive!

Nan is just catching up with all the news from the last month. Glad to see Ben has his uniforn. Will look forward to photo's soon. It was also good to hear that everyone in Hedland is OK. I am assuming that includes Auntie Trish and Melissa and co.

Phew! I'm glad you're okay.

You're son sure does look handsome in his uniform. Is the hat part of the uniform?

Hi Mum! I have emailed you with all the news and yes, photos are on the way.I have a bundle from the last month or so, I was just waiting for you to stop gallivanting 'round the countryside and get home! LOL

Thanks, Paula. A hat is part of their uniform but this isn't his 'school' hat although it's very similar. The school has a 'no hat, no outside play' policy, as do most schools and day-cares in Australia.
