This was the sunset last week - just beautiful. However, it was because of all the fires around our district. I didn't hear of anyone losing houses, but there was a lot of smoke around. Not a good time for asthmatics. But it did make a beautiful photo.
This guy has been a frequent visitor to our garden. He is just beautiful. Unfortunately, the Rainbow Lorrikeets chase him away - but each day he returns and looks for his favourite seeds!
This is Libby - she is a Scaly breasted Lorrikeet and she is about 3 weeks old. She'll be coming to live with us soon. She's a little darling. She was left to die and was rescued from her parents - she was given to the woman we are buying her off. She fed her around the clock - every hour for about 3 days as she was so dehydrated. However, she is full of life now and very bossy. Think that this is the reason she survived such odds - she's so tenacious!
This is our other baby - no name yet as we don't know if it's a boy or girl. A rainbow lorrikeet. Only about 2 1/2 weeks old. She's going to come and live with us too.
It's been a busy first week of the holidays. I've been asked to sew some "bird accessories" - some covers for cages and some "happy huts" for birds to sleep in. I've also been learning to make bird toys. DD and I have had lots of fun over the last few days.
I've also been working on my F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap - just about finished it. Hopefully will have it in the post by Monday at the latest.
Eldest son comes home tomorrow - he's been working at a camp that's run each year for children with disabilities. He enjoys it - but gets to work with some challenging children.
We're having a day at the coast on Sunday - eldest son is abseiling. Hopefully the weather will be good for the day.
DH and the other kids will be home next Wednesday.
I love school holidays.
