This pair sat outside my kitchen window for ages,the partner was a little camera shy though.
When we lived on the property I would feed the Rainbow lorikeets every morning.
They would line up on my windowsill at sunrise and squawk until I got up, then they would fly around to the front of the house and meet me on the balcony ready for breakfast, clearly they are very intelligent birds.
We had huge numbers arriving daily,they would perch on my outstretched arms in an attempt to be the first to the food plate in my hand.
Visitors were amazed and would "waste" rolls of film taking photos of the event, I was tediously under-whelmed by the whole thing, to me this was normal (and I was also a teenager!!!).They were noisy and bossy and beautiful and I took them for granted.
Now its a real treat just to see one so close.
I was so thrilled in fact that I was driven to take a photo...Ahem...this felt very strange... I guess I now understand.
I do miss living in the bush!
I hope they visit again soon.
Thankyou Laura from my summerhouse for my first blog award.
I love her blog , she is just so lovely and has been very supportive of me as a (relatively) new blogger .
Thankyou again Laura.
Im thrilled that blogging has given me the opportunity to meet so many beautiful and talented people.
Ok so im supposed to say 7 things about myself then pass it on to other bloggers that inspire me.
Here we go.
1~ Im the youngest of 6 kids, 3 girls 3 boys.
2~ We were brought up Catholic (surprise surprise) And although I no longer practice I do have a thing for religious iconology in decorating. Unfortunately its a look Ive not successfully achieved.
3~ Whilst building our childhood home we lived for a time opposite the old orphanage grounds in Catholic housing. Id spend my days hanging out with the priest and the Nuns who lived there, we were lucky, they were all genuine and lovely people.They adored me and I them, I was 4. I remember it as one of the happiest times of my childhood.
4~ I grew up on a 16 acre property. Im still not used to living in suburbia.
5~ I come from a theatrical background (musicals) my parents were (and still are) heavily involved in the local musical society since before I was born. I loved performing from an early age and started doing shows as soon as I was old enough to audition.
I haven't been on stage since my children were born.
7~ I don't like raw tomato.
Ok.. so if you are still with me after all that rambling here are the lovely fellow bloggers that Id like to pass this award onto.
1~ Katherine from theoldboathouse
(She has been super supportive and patient with my inexperience from the very first day I started blogging and Im so grateful).
We had to put it in place immediately because the outside room wasn't an option during the flooding episode (and the kitchen was already full) so I didn't get the chance to paint it while it was outside.
Im actually kinda glad I lived with it for a while first because I think I may keep it looking chippy.
Ill need to find another handle... somewhere?
The yellowy green has to go...
(Im thinking pale pink)

And as we are talking about wardrobes.
