A very lazy morning catching up on Eastenders which Alice had kindly saved for me to watch. I was just getting to the last one when Jon came home for lunch! I showered and went out to get ice cream and bread with Alice. After the ice cream I went back out to get stamps, a game to place with Elsie, some money from the cash point and baby card for a friend back home who has just had her baby.
After that I decided to get a cup of tea and cookie (exactly the same as the one I had before) and I started to read this book.
It was a Christmas present and I didn’t get time to read it before I came over – I was a little busy! It is a very good book, funny and informative. It also makes some perceptive observations which you would only understand if you had been to Australia. After the tea, I took my book to a picnic table close to the beach and continued to read. During a pause in reading I noticed these birds doing a dance and strutting about.
I thought they looked quite exotic until I found out they were called Creasted Pigeons! This is what they look like up close and no I didn’t take this photo!
There are loads of different birds here and they all look very interesting which is why I am including them in my blog! It also makes me find out what they are called! Perhaps I should have a poster of Australian birds so I can identify them more quickly!
When I got home I spent some time catching up on my blog (I have been days behind!) until a friend of Jon’s arrived to watch a rugby game. Actually, even though I don’t like sport much, it was actually a good game! I also realised that if Jon was drinking then I had to remain sober in case Alice needed to be whisked off to hospital. Jon did another bbq and as usual it was good grub.
Quote/idiom for today: If you can beat them, join them! Especially when it comes to sport!

There are loads of pretty birds here – I don’t always catch them with my camera though! Thanks for the book!
