nom nom nom.....

I am currently a patchwork of leech bites and tick bites and ant bites and mayfly bites
after my friday-bush-sojourn (aka koala survey)

it is neither pretty nor pleasant

I have resorted to antihistamine and a goodly amount of swearing
which has made me feel MUCH better

(FP just rolled eyes skyward and laughed....'see THIS is how nature repays you...')


meantime my daddio has gone all gooey over some plovers who made a nest in his yard ..... 

the birds finally managed to hatch a clutch of baby plovers....  

I don't think I've ever seen my mummy and daddio more proud or involved
in the lives of any small creature (myself and baby brother included)
as they are right now with the baby plovers....

but I suppose in all honesty, 
the baby plovers are far cuter than I ever managed to be....



  1. Hi Ronnie I was stoked reading your koala post and damned impressed with your response to the bull ant. I have gone out in sympathy with you today however, as I have a lovely couple of grass tick bites on my chin and my cheek (very attractive) and a massive welt from a jumping ant - at least its on my leg (but I had to drop the dacks mid-yard to find it!) all because I went down the back and pruned. Nature huh?

  2. Sympathy coming your way re all the bites. Yucko! But aren't baby plavers the most adorable babies. No wonder your parents have gone all gooey.

  3. Hey Rhonda! I just wanted to let you know that I've given you an award over at my blog. Congrats! You soooo deserve it!! Happy weekend xx


thanks for all your lovely comments - your words are greatly appreciated xx
