My Morning Walk - 18 Dec 2005

As I was out on my morning walk (last Sunday morning of delivering catalogues) I saw a baby lorikeet. It sqwarked like a baby and had not yet grown all of it's flight feathers. It was hopping across the ground and could only manage to fly about 2 feet. It was gorgeous. I was tempted to try and find it's nest but due to the amount of trees around the place (and the fact that it's parents seemed to be around) I did not know where to start. I had to leave it where it was and go on my way.

It was still a pretty cool sight and it was the first real baby lorikeet I had seen in the 'wild'.

Note: This picture was taken at the beginning of the year of a rainbow lorikeet that was busy showing off for the camera.

My Morning Walk

Changes

Changes are in the air:

  • Grub has learnt to take off her nappy and today we have spent a good part putting it back on or a new one on
  • Grub looks like she is toilet training herself as she quite regularly goes toilet before a bath/shower and has also gone a few times today when I found her naked
  • Hubby found a 3 month contract. Yippee! First decent bit of work in almost 6 months
  • Jade has stopped listening to me but she still likes her alone time with mum
  • Today and tomorrow are my last days on the paper round. I didn't get much done today as it was slow going this morning and I ended up with two tag-alongs (Jade and Mercedes both woke up extra early today - sunrise)
  • Only 4 weeks till I launch (or hope to launch) my Cooking e-Course.
  • Rapid weather changes due to still frequent storms (not as often as they had been)
  • I own a mp3 player, though it isn't the one I want but it is good enough for me for the moment.
  • I have done some major clean ups, even though they aren't really noticeable
  • I made 4 Christmas stockings - 1 aussie theme, 1 green with gold embroidered trim, 1 purple with gold trim, 1 pink with gold trim. I am also attempting to make a knee length gypsy skirt (I am currently unpicking everything I just sewed up on it!)

Christmas Cake

Why not serve individual Christmas cakes instead of one large cake?

Too Tired

I am soooo tired. These extra early mornings and late nights folding are ruining me. I just need to sleep! But I can't, it is only 10am and I have kids to school, housework to be done and a few errands to run. Oh yeah, and fights to mediate.
