Plotting mischief :P

A lovely Iris... I did ask Wombat not to pick it... I guess that's why he took the buds as well.

Wombat trying to eat cheese through a straw...

A very cheeky bird - Cracticus torquatus - the Grey Butcher Bird. He's waiting for someone to bring him a bit of meat, which he will take from your hand.

A work in progress - about time for a new pair of jeans. These ones keep falling around my ankles :P

Baby apricots. At least we usually get to eat some of these when they ripen, though the birds and fruit bats feast as well :D

Baby cherries! Each year I look fondly at them as they emerge and dream of them ripening, but there are never very many and each year the birds get to them first.

Determined not to let a teething, grumpy baby prevent me from getting my exercise (for obvious reasons... MUST LOSE WEIGHT!).

It worked better than expected, from Munchkin's point of view, anyway. This will probably be the last time we use a baby carrier for Munchkin. He is getting TOO heavy!

Boys at play.

Baby grapefruits - in the making for next year.

Saturday, September 19, 2009


I have been really enjoying the grapefruit this year - but this is the very last one on the tree.

The plum blossom has turned into baby plums.

A sweet baby radish :D

Wombat and the freshly sprouting vegetable garden. (The old stocking supported our baby rockmelon last season - until it was nibbled away to nothing - culprit unknown but deer or wallaby suspected.)

Wombat's first self portrait - and first and only drawing of a human :D

In an attempt to reduce clutter in the bedroom, I stored all the snuggle toys that weren't being regularly played with in one corner, out of the way. Munchkin found them and climbed in, pleased as punch.

He loves to play with softies...

But then big brother Wombat notices me taking a photo and wants in on the action...

and then, of course, he wants it all to himself.

A pair of eagles.

A misty morning.

Strongest baby in the world :D (That's a 3kg dumbell set and he carried them around for most of the morning...)

Wombat's playdough shark. (Love the smile!)

Wind storms coat everything with a thick layer of red dust.

A very tall, very spiky tree is blown over onto the garage.

Photographic proof that sonic mosquito repellers do NOT work. LOL. (I got one as a gift with an ebay purchase.)

Sunday, September 6, 2009


A pair of bronzewings on our bird feeding tray. (Sorry it's a bit blurry - it was taken through our playroom window.)

Munchkin enjoying the rollalong Monkey he got for his birthday from Auntie Steff & family.

It's impossible to get a good photo of this... a gentle breeze is wafting drifts of plum blossom petals through the air like snow, and here is Wombat dancing in a "snow swirl".

Plum blossom "snow"

Wombat's drawing of a duck towing an eggshell trailer for its ducklings to ride in.

It's hard enough having an awful haircut without having to put up with a bad hair day & hat hair as well :P
