We have a bat living in our rafters. Late every night the bat swoops about the house eating the mosquitoes. I had to dodge the bat in the hallway the other night, and after lights are out ‘he’ has taken to swooping quite low over us as we lie in bed.
The R key on my keyboard has died, this is soo annoying. I use a laptop in conjunction with a larger keyboard. PC was laughing as he watched me the other morning, keying on the keyboard and reaching upwards to the laptop to key in the R. He said I reminded him of an organ player.
It is currently kerbside pickup time in our town. As I drove home today craning my neck to ‘find a bargain’ I reflected on the report PC heard recently. Apparently Australians love to pick up a kerbside bargain and boast about it. Sounds about correct to me.
I’m back on an Australian fiction history binge again. Last night I had a fascinating discussion with my brother about history and misinformation. We were talking about ‘the facts’ I had read in a number of sources, about an incident that had happened in his area of Australia, according to Bro the ‘old timers’ up there say it is simply not accurate. A bit like ‘Whispers,’ ‘everyone’ now regards it as ‘truth’.
Last week I asked for suggestions for a blog name change when the baby comes. Deanne suggested
Family at Misrule
A Fortunate Life
Sun on the Stubble
I like these, but… would anyone outside of Australia recognise these as distinctly Australian?
Talking names I am getting quite desperate as we have only 4.5weeks tilll the baby is due and no name if we have a boy!!! Koala is holding a baby name challenge, we are searching for an unusual saint’s name. Any suggestions?
I’m still struggling to read picture books daily to my little ones:( I’ve tried a few different approaches to motivate myself, but I don’t make longterm progress. I’m wondering if I actually made a list that “We will read x, y and z” it will help in accomplishing my desire. What works for you?
