a list


  • A day of sunshine surrounded by storm clouds
  • A three wattled bellbird by the road
  • A gift of freshly caught tuna
  • A friend for the afternoon
  • A loan of an intriguing book
  • A wasp sting

    We’re swamped with wasps! I stood on one yesterday and had forgotten how much they hurt.
    We have eight chicks who are too little to safely free-range around the garden, and they have taught themselves to hunt slugs, ants and wasps – I’m proud of them.
    Bunbury the dog keeps snapping at wasps too, but with her I’m worried she’ll get into trouble – though the pain of a wasp sting doesn’t seem to deter her from the hunt.

    What’s the book?

    That book turned out to be a dud… but I just read The Poisonwood Bible which was great.

    I agree, it’s a bit long, but brilliant.

    I loved the Poisonword Bible too – a great read until towards the end. Just finished The Moutain a first novel by Drusilla Modjeska about New Guinea just before independence and the aftermath- very good. Doing a lot of reading in chilly Bundeena! I alway thought sydney was WARM, even in winter.
