Another very wet weekend

I'm really down, had so much planned for this weekend and it has rained solidly since about 7.30 last night (Friday). I don't mind if it rains during the week and actually I don't mind a bit of rain on the weekend, but this is really, really...

Things that make me mad

1. People who do 30 klms around the Bilgola Bends (truthfully your life won't come to an end at 60 klms an hour), you have to live here to appreciate this one. 2. Drivers who don't know how to use a roundabout. No you don't have to give way...
