Weekend reading

Here she is! Born on Wednesday to Danny and Laura.

We've had very cold days and nights here in many parts of Australia. There has been record snow falls in the alps and strong winds. I hope you're staying warm. For all my friends experiencing summer in other parts of the world, I hope it's not too hot for you and you're enjoying clinking ice cubes in your cold drinks. Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

Work Shop - getting people together

  6. That little lady is such a cutie!

    As for the Koala Zoo video, OHMIGOD!!!!! I have ADORED Koalas since I was a little girl but have only seen them in two zoos in the States. I am incredibly jealous and respectful of all these kind hearted people who get to hold and care for them.

  8. Bub has a lovely head of hair :). The Koala zoo is near where I used to live. It is part of a park where they have other Australian animals and birds and it is well worth visiting! Also very popular school excursion venue.

  9. Thank you, Hanno, for the suggestion to watch the program Power to the people. My husband & I found the program to be very, very interesting! What is our government doing??? Australia should be moving with the times!
    Gorgeous baby, congratulations to the new parents.
