Gorgeous weather – finally! And the lilac has arrived.
It was an amazingly beautiful week here. Hot enough I accidentally got sunburnt when I was reading outside. As blue-skied and sunny as it looks in the pictures. The strong scent of spring flowers everywhere. And the bloody magpies (and their new babies) and currawongs (and their new babies) hanging around all day, and the magpies singing for snacks. In the warmer months I work outside as often as I can, but now whenever I duck inside for a moment I come back out to find birds sitting on my chair – and perched on top of my computer! I remember one time last summer a magpie decided it HAD to sit on my Kindle, and it managed to change my book, change the text size, and turn a bunch of pages!
We had a few Halloween things here this weekend. Halloween is a brand new holiday for most Australians, but it’s catching on fairly fast.
I know the tragedy at the theme park on the Gold Coast made the news overseas. Most of the people killed were from one family here in Canberra. What a disaster the whole thing has been.
As for the blog this week:
