Excited ....

Very happy and thrilled .... elder son and his wife and son are coming to visit next week for a week or so.  Will be great to be able to spend some time with them.

Son is going to do a big clean up for me and take away some of his junk stuff .... lol.

Also we are all off to my latest granddaughter Madeleine's Christening.  The extra excitement is that my elder grandson is coming also - his maternal grand father is dropping him off after Bathurst (he is a car nut) either Friday or Saturday and his dad will drop him home on Sunday evening after the festivities.

Find the birds ..
The Friday beforehand we are all going to Newcastle to see my late husband's mum - she cried when I told her we were all coming as it has been a while since we were all together.  She is getting rather frail and has been ill a lot lately but is still good for a woman in her late 80s.  Sadly elder grandson won't be there as he will be watching the cars ... lol.

It will be great to get some sort of order at home - I can't get into my garage or my shed - and there is a lot of rubbish to go to the tip.

He is also going to trim some of the trees in the front yard for me.

There is one ...
I have a few eucalypt, some melaleuca, callistamon and grevillea - the native birds love them all.  First thing in the morning and late in the afternoon flocks of Rainbow Lorikeets arrive to feed.  On and off through the day they pop in for a snack.

Then when the sun goes down the fruit bats arrive, squabbling over who gets the best bits ....

I also planted two wisteria about 12 years ago and the damn things have never flowered or grown much.  Beats me why as there are a lot in the area which grow and flower profusely.  Anyway last year I got two flowers on the white one and 1 on the mauve ... whoopee .... NOT!

This year they have flowered!!!

Maybe at last they have decided they like living here and will grow and flourish ... lol.

  1. That all sounds exciting. Hope it goes well. I have found the removing of stuff doesn't always get done when young one say it will....hope yours does.
    Probably the only thing I didn't like about Oz was the fruit bats and what they smell like.
