It has been one of those weeks… Five dead cane toads in the garden, a dead lizard on the bottom of the pool and then there was the piece de resistance… I had received a whiff of ‘dead thing’ on … Continue reading
We are lucky to have spectacular sunsets here in Darwin. During the wet season the skies are heavy with dramatic monsoon clouds and in the dry season the smoke from bush fires creates the most beautiful hazy colours. Capturing a … Continue reading
I feel I should point out the following 10 things before you come to the conclusion of this post:- 1. I do not have to navigate my way through my house through artificial corridors of newspapers; 2. I don’t think … Continue reading
Apparently I don’t like change… would that make me conservative? I think I’d rather be inflexible. Yes, I’m inflexible. A would-be luddite. Unable to cope when Google Reader disappears. It didn’t irk me, even a little, when I read that … Continue reading
Helloooooo! Apologies for the lack of posts. Miss Fab, her sidekick plus the two cats have been left in the care of Aunty M who is sending through regular updates and photos but I haven’t had time to sit down … Continue reading

Elsie has discovered how to nose the bedroom door open in the middle of the night. I leave it open a touch so that Fergus and George can come and go as they please. On Thursday night she nicked through … Continue reading
Flo Flo is feeling very abandoned at the moment; I keep going out and taking The Ritalin Kid but not her. Even though she gets something tasty before we go, this is the pathetic sight at the gate when we … Continue reading
