As part of the fun Kelly has set her readers an essay task (such a great idea! it worked to break up the monotony of my day...) - to write a piece of our day in Austin-style. One entry will be randomly picked and a prize sent out!
I decided to do mine in letter format, on paper, and will actually send this to my friend Helen who is currently without internet and missing "blogland" very much. :) So here goes!

My dear Helen,
It is with longing that I write to you this day, for so many weeks have passed since I have seen your smiling face. How are you faring up in seaside Hervey Bay? I expect those bonny children of yours are keeping you busy, night and day. How I would love to come and visit with you soon! I do hope our health improves as we come in to March. I am tiring of the various sicknesses ailing us of late.
My throat is aching again today, and so I made the *proper* decision to have a quiet day at home. Elijah is happy- you know my boy, always content to potter at home.
Those pestersome weevels have moved in again, set to infest and munch their way through our pantry goods. So today I have taken it upon myself to attack with force, and rid my kitchen of their troublesome presence! It has been a day hence of sorting and cleaning, and I must say I have rather enjoyed the process. We shall finish the task tomorrow.
This afternoon however, I have had to endure the unpleasant experience of tooth extraction. Despite my very good dentist's best efforts, I feel somewhat uncomfortable tonight as my body struggles with the sensations in throat and mouth. I am trusting young William will sleep well again tonight, and allow his Mother some much-needed rest.
Well, my dear, I must away.
With much love and adoration,
Done in haste, but enjoyed!! Hope you did too. :)
