Fridays Down Under


My day started with some comedy…I know how unusual…I thought Phil was getting up for work..ok so he got out of bed then the next thing I know he’s whacking at the Doona (duvet) straight away I though he had lost the plot and was trying to kill me…

I asked him just what he thought he was doing..bear in mind I was asleep still…sort of..

Well apparently something crawled up his arm and he was swatting it off the bed…it was a spider and was crawling on the covers near me…so he was trying to ‘get it of the bed’ hmmmmm

So we both went back to sleep ..me with one eye open…I didn’t see any spider…hmmm

And that is how Friday started…

After brekkie I spotted Holly and Boo in the front yard…they are so well camo that I am still finding it hard to tell if Boo is a boy or girl..there is a smallish mob that are enjoying the green shoots of grass that are coming up on the properties in our street..to give you a better picture ..

We live in a dead end street..right at the end on the left side..each property is large we are on the second largest with 11 acres the people at the very bottom are on 12 in all there are 8 lots ..none of them smaller that 9 acresΒ ..we have no neighbours yet on our left side but the lot has been sold..there are only 4 other houses in the street…so it’s good habitat for the roos with dams all around and people who respect nature..even when they build next to us and sell the 3 other lots the roos will be safe with plenty to graze πŸ™‚
