A visitor

Can I just say that having Tom home on holiday has completely disrupted my routine. Don't get me wrong, it's very nice having him around but I just can't get on with things the way I normally do. I told him today he's cramping my blogging style. He was indifferent.

And he's eaten all the cashews.

Anyway despite still feeling a bit tired I'm attempting a post. I'm only using one finger to type because I have it on good authority that it's not as tiring if you do it that way.

I don't have a lot to report (the cashews were the highlight really). Today I glanced out of the window and noticed a visitor sitting on the washing line.

Please excuse the blurry photograph, these guys tend not to hang around long so there isn't much time to get it right. I think you can still tell how handsome he is. What is not so obvious is how big he is. They're surprisingly large birds these kookaburras. We have quite a lot of them around here and they regularly laugh, it's a wonderful thing to hear because it's a greeting and the first bird will begin with a faint chuckling sound and the others gradually join in until there is a whole crowd of them indulging in raucous hilarity. I never tire of it and it always makes me smile.

Ok, that's it.

Bet you're glad you stopped by.

Having never seen one of them, it was well worth popping by.

Now go and rest that finger.

Oh yes, it was a great description. Now I want to visit Australia, to hear the kookaburras.

I've rested my finger and think I might even manage another post today.

Perhaps you can come with Dave Z, he's coming over to do some painting for me.
