A one year old, 90 seconds and an unopened packet of washing powder!

She's quick.

I mean super quick!

I left her strapped into her booster seat eating her dinner.

I left her for all of 90 seconds - 2 minutes max.

This is what I returned to:


You should see the mess on the floor!

Don't even mention the fact that she's squatting on my dinner table.

I know that at almost 2-years old she doesn't realise that what she's doing is naughty - that doesn't make it less frustrating though as I had to clean up the mess.

I also owe my Mum a box of washing powder.

Feed the Birds

My Mum often throws stale bread over her balcony to feed the birds, and Annabelle loves watching them eat the crumbs. Normally it's only sparrows, doves, honey eaters and willy wagtails that appear but over the last few days she's been visited by some lovely rainbow lorikeets - who made their first appearance looking water logged after several days of heavy rain.

Today Annabelle threw some bread out for the birds (some of which didn't get any further than her mouth) and was rewarded with the lorikeet's landing on the railing only a few feet away from her.  I managed to hand-feed one of them but the other one was too shy to come that close to me.

It would be lovely if they became regular visitors to the yard.
