Pirates and things

We recently discovered the site LibriVox, which is free audio books from the public domain. Such a valuable resource - especially for long car trips! Treasure Island and Robinson Crusoe are the latest two books the children have been listening to. And as a result, the house has been rather brim full of pirates and marooned sailors.....

BBQ's and awards

The weather has been amazingly pleasant for this time of year. The rain keeps cooling things down, and we have had quite a few outdoor BBQ's over the last week. The trees have been enjoying the rain too - some of them actually look like trees now (as opposed to seedlings), which is very exciting for us! This interesting little fella was found nibbling on our gum trees.

Don was very proud to be the recipient of this illustrious award: "Best cook award", presented by our eldest chicken for the lovely roast lamb he cooked the other night!
