Nothing to show for it


Just exhausted here. Nothing fun either. Just work, very little play and not enough sleep.

And no sewing to show you either. Although I have been doing some applique - I am making four blocks for Clare's Quilts 4 Leukaemia challenge. I slipped into her last round of contributors and was most relieved when she said there was no rush!

I'll be able to post a photo of the finished blocks over the weekend. It's a long weekend here - Friday is Australia Day. I usually really look forward to long weekends, but not at the moment - it just means I have to fit five days worth of work into four. Grrr.

So I feel like I've been doing a lot of work, but have nothing to show for it.


We have had a little time for fun - Carl and I took Romily to the walk-in aviary in Canberra the weekend before last. She loved it - there was an amazing number of different parrots, finches, budgies and galahs. There were also quail, doves and lots of other birds. Romy loved it - she could run around to her heart's content and she also fed some apple to the gamer birds, some very experienced and noisy lorikeets. We had a lot of fun.

This little bird has obviously worked out what new humans into the enclosure means - fresh apple. He landed on Carl's shoulder within seconds of us walking in!

There really is no rush. Take your time.

Thanks for your help and support.
