Spring in my late-grandmother’s garden X
We are literally cat magnets these days. Here is yet another starving stray, who had the bad sense to move into my grandmother’s house right when contracts were being signed to sell it (the house, not the half-grown kitten!). This is possibly the most gorgeous, lovely-natured animal I have ever come across – and she is half the size she looks in the pictures!
In Canberra on Wednesday night they closed off half the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge (which connects the city with the Federal Parliament buildings) to film something involving guns and Chinese spies and a man jumping into the lake. The half of the bridge on the right of the picture is where some James Bond-type is going to be jumping from! (That is one of our pictures from 2013. You can’t really even tell it’s a bridge over water!) I guess I’ll have to watch this thing when it comes out!
Want an amazing story? On Friday a young woman missing in Canberra was found. After almost seven full days of everyone thinking of the worst possible reasons for her disappearance it turns out her car had crashed and she’d rolled down a slope, hitting all sorts of things. She’d been waiting for rescue for almost a week! It looks really remote, but here in the nation’s capital you have bushland like this even in the city centre! She must have been so frustrated.
