This afternoon, we went to visit some friends who live up in the hills (in a beautifully renovated house). We had a really nice time – chit chatting over afternoon tea and coffee and playing with the kids.
As we were leaving, a really cool thunder storm brewed overhead. Lightning was blazing the sky with colour, making the clouds glow with an evil pinkness. The occasional rumble seemed to shake the car windows as we drove back into the city. It was so cool that we decided to buy take-away and park by the river.
So there we sat. All four of us. Looking out over the water. Rain beating down on the car like marbles. Watching the lightning show. Munching on chips. Making the windows fog up. And listening to Callum’s favourite CD for this month,
The Blues Brothers. Which, didn’t quite capture the moment I was hoping for, but at least it was better than The Wiggles.
