Local wildlife

I've mentioned before that one of the best things about living in Australia is the wildlife. There are so many interesting and unusual animals in this country, some of which can be seen in your own backyard (or shed).

So you can imagine my delight when I managed to photograph a little known, and rarely seen, species of wombat as it came through the cat door this morning (obviously trying to escape the freezing rain). This remarkable little marsupial is the Lesser Turquoise Wombat (Vombatus Acid Trippus) or 'Pink Ear', a very rare sighting indeed. I'm so glad I had the camera handy.

Alternatively my children could be messing with my head, planning to have me committed so they can get their greedy little hands on that bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk hidden at the back of the pantry.

If anything happens to me can someone let the authorities know please.

Do they do a 1930's mother quiz?

Let's bloody well hope not Dave.

Now if you'll excuse me it's dinner time, I'd better go and throw some pig trotters into their cage.

Have you ever read Lord of the Flies?
