The plan today was to get out early and often. Epic fail. It's that time of semester when what you need to do takes priority over what you want to do. I needed to get work done and I also knew I needed sleep. So sorry dogs the walk didn't happen this morning as I promised. But all work and no play makes Susan a grumpy girl so in the late afternoon we headed off to the University of Queensland Lakes. With Drama Teen bogged down in Drama assessment requiring a clear head, we dragged him along too. It was just what the doctor ordered. Slightly ruffled feathers were preened back into place. It will be some weeks before heads are above water but at least it was a chance to take a big breath. It is not exactly an ideal plan for a Saturday but all things considered it worked.
