Petrichor: the smell of rain on very dry ground.
Thank God for thunderstorms after a week of 40s. It’s raining, it’s pouring and what a relief.
In the last hundred years, there have only been 11 instances where Canberra had temperatures of over 40°C in the shade.
Three of them occurred last week.
Soak it up, Canberra.
I come from a much smaller island-city-state-country called Singapore. I’ve been setting down roots in Australia since 2003. I love both countries immensely.
In 1986, I became a writer.
In 2002, a blogger.
In 2004, a wife.
In 2011, a mother.
Somewhere in amongst all that, I did event and conference management, public relations, marketing, and online communications for over a decade. I’m currently a freelance web manager for a modern dance school, a part-time Communications and Marketing Manager, a part-time writer, and a part-time stay-at-home mother. I don’t sleep much.
