Yes, for the moment the rain has ceased but there is a cyclone up in the Coral Sea that could either go away from us or then veer back. Cyclones are unpredictable like that.
To celebrate I decided to do away with my "old lady" nighties and get with the groove. So I lashed out and bought these new flannel Pj's with new brightly coloured tops as well.
The aqua were not my first choice yesterday when I discovered them. I had bought a purple pair with pink hearts all over them. I did try them on when I got home and they were ok, then threw them in a cold wash. When they were dry (on the line) I ironed them ready to wear one set to bed.
Well! Put the purple pair on and they had shrunk! !?%&### So today I trekked back down to the shops and exchanged them all for larger sizes. The new ones are longer so hope if they are going to shrink they shrink to shorter so I dont have to turn up hems.
Anyway if this size works I will be a snug and warm and colourful when I go to bed. Keeping my fingers crossed.
This morning I noticed my new little neighbour flitting about and managed to get a pic of her.
She is a little female wren and her mate is a gorgeous colour blue. He is too quick for me to be able to get a pic but he looks like the ones we had at serenity below. They have a nest in the shrub the female is sitting on just outside my door. I cant help wondering if they have followed me here from Serenity.
While checking out the wrens I noticed that the camelias are beginning to flower outside my unit and could not resist picking a couple for a vase on my desk
