Hush! Hush! whisper who dares....

I am only going to say this very quietly and only once .... (so listen very carefully) I have actually missed MIL today!!!!!!

The house seems strangely quiet and I have been kind of made redundant in the tea making facilities (anyone who knows a British person, especially one of 70 plus years of age KNOWS that the one thing they rely on and drink THROUGHOUT the day is a cup of tea - goodness only knows how many I have made over the last month) and when I took the tram into the City of Melbourne at lunch time to meet Mr SE at a Japanese cafe I didn't have any one to point out various landmarks to out of the window....... Nor anyone to comment to about the wildlife, flowers or people in Melbourne..... Although MIL'S comments back to me were frequently derogatory regarding the 'people' aspect - i.e. 'What is she wearing - it looks as if it has never seen an iron?"

I am sure this feeling of missing the old MIL will pass though - quite soon!!

Meanwhile I took this photograph today and will post it here for you all of two cute and colourful parrots just sitting in a tree outside the house in the street where I live (again, you will probably have to click on the photograph to see them! ) I know that if you are Australian that seeing these parakeets is a common thing but I still, as a Brit here, cannot get over and marvel at their exotic colours and the fact that they look almost out of place in a deciduous tree.

Another small joy of living in Australia.....


  1. well if you want a tram ride with site seeing for free, jump on the city red tram (which circles the city for free) all day, every day! Otherwise, date a local!! hehe

  2. Yes, I know - great service - took the MIL on this several times when she was staying with us.... mmmmm - yes, the locals are very nice and some of them extremely so but I think Mr SE would have something to say about your second suggestion!!

  3. Oh and thanks for joining the follower flock too, Annie!!

  4. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
