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
Somebody was busy overnight Sunday. A couple of days ago she halved the amount that she was eating, which is apparently a sign that they’re getting ready to give birth, so I sorted the nesting box out again in the … 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
When Flo finds George on her bed she (wisely) won’t go near it. Elsie has the stupidity foolishness innocence of youth on her side. She’ll learn.
Tonight is the first night that Elsie hasn’t been confined to either a crate or pen overnight. It’s half past eleven. Here are some pics of the early part of the night… Five minutes in and Elsie’s bed is empty … Continue reading
Today’s mischief wasn’t caused by any permanent occupants of Flo’s house, but by unwanted house guests. I have known there’s been a rat in the storeroom for several weeks. It was nibbling away at the lambs’ ears I had for … Continue reading
It is becoming a regular occurence for Flo to turn up at the door completely naked… Elsie has been honing her skills in collar removal, which is then followed by chewing them juuuust to the point that the buckle no … Continue reading

Elsie assures me she has no idea who dug about in all my carefully placed sand, but she thinks it might have been Flo. Or George. Or even Fergus. We’re taking part in the Monday Mischief Blog Hop hosted by … Continue reading
Not on your nellie Elsie. The fence was put there to stop Elsie drowning in the pond when she was little. She’s not little any more, but the fence is staying put. I can’t think why! This is part of … Continue reading

Elsie is out of control. She can be asleep outside and I’ll bring her in and she’ll do this. She’ll do this and I’ll put her outside, where she’ll lie down straight away and go to sleep. Will she just … Continue reading

… and she loved every minute. We went and joined the gang for a play just over a week ago now, even though the Fab one’s leg isn’t right… sometimes you’ve got to have fun too. We didn’t stay long, … Continue reading
Flo thought I’d been in bed long enough. With having a full house of visitors we’ve been sleeping on the sofabed in the study – well, Flo has been on her bed on the floor – there wasn’t much room … Continue reading
