No, it is quite a few miles away.
When you talk about your river cupcake it reminds me so much of how it was where I grew up. I was very much a river flats girl. When I go out of town for groceries sometimes here, when I come home, the first sight I have of our town here, is the river flats with the town behind. I love that. That part was still green a week ago, but nowhere as green as the time before that.
As for car washing, there is a way around the restrictions, which is probably good practice at any time, although I must stress that I have a small car.
I catch the last rinse water from the machine, which is a bucket full. Then I use an Enjo car washing mitten and a Sabco (I think) microfibre cloth that was in the car aisle at Kmart, and a spray bottle of something called waterless car wash.
I spray a very small amount of the wash onto the car, then dip the Enjo in the bucket and rub it over the wash. The Enjoy must be really wet at all times, or it will scratch. Then do that to another small section of the car. As I finish each section, I go back to the previous one and wipe it with the microfibre cloth which removes any missed bits as well as drying it. By the time I've done the whole car, it's dry and clean. I start with the windows.
The whole process takes about 15 minutes and uses a half bucket of water.
Nowhere near as much fun as squirting a hose everywhere, but efficient and I don't end up drenched.

It has been raining quite a lot overnight here. This morning though I have been thinking we may need to install watering systems as we are going to be quite busy and the times given to water are very restrictive.

The new place we are hopefully moving to has low water restrictions. Just this week though I heard the federal government has taken over, so who knows what will eventually happen. At least we are on flatter ground and could possibly get a bore.
julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
