Lately, I've been reading some strange books, with very long chapter subtitles, as seen above.
Today, ignoring the forecast of showers, DH, the children and I went to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. We spotted a koala, searched for platypus, saw mobs of kangaroos, and an elusive rock wallaby.
Then we played hard in their fabulous adventure playground, only leaving as the rain started bucketing down.
A highlight for me was seeing (and managing to photograph - they're tiny, and FAST) this superb fairy-wren. While not particularly rare, they are always special to see.
The cleaning was really quite boring, so I'll leave it there.
