We are home from Cody’s reptile party, I kept a respectable distance but still had a good view of my much braver grandchildren. Not all of the children were overly impressed with the animals, some would not touch them, but they all had a good look. Not one but three snakes, a half-dozen or so lizards, a baby crocodile, a tortoise, a bettong, a tawny frogmouth, and a flying possum. Brian surprised me, he had this huge python around his neck, he said it was quite heavy. I must confess I am impressed, I did not think for one minute he would have done that, poor thing is having an afternoon nap now.
It was a shame that Jade and Blake, and Wade and Gink could not make the party, with Blake moving to Alice Springs in April I will not be able to have my entire family together very often from now on. The kids have to make their own lives though and if the best thing for Blake is to move then move he must, I don’t have to like it, I just have to accept it.
I know I have complained a lot on here about women putting on their makeup whilst driving but the other day a woman I saw just left me speechless. There she was sitting in her car in the middle of the intersection of Grand Junction Road and Hampstead Road waiting to turn right, and what was she doing, why putting on her lip gloss of course.
Downton Abbey is back tonight, one of my favourite television shows. Maggie Smith is wonderful as the dowager Lady Grantham, in fact the entire cast are superb. We are also looking forward to Fat Tony on Channel 9, all my favourite shows all on the one night, not to mention My Kitchen Rules and So You Think You Can Dance. What to watch and what to record, decisions, decisions. 🙂
