Is it really Thursday again? Where has the week gone?
Joining in with Like Mother, Like Daughter.
I love the way the late afternoon sun hits our table.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh kookaburra, laugh kookaburra
Gay* your life must be.
We had a visit from old man kookaburra on the weekend. He was just outside our kitchen window. He nests in the tree beyond our back fence but has never come this close before.
*In light of political correctness gone mad, this is now taught to school children as 'happy your life must be'.
We bought Ginger a trike in the Target toy sale last week. She is firmly disinterested in the trike itself, having screamed the whole time we took her for a walk with it. The box, on the other hand, is a hit.
This is what the buying of a ALDI shopper looks like.
That is, one who is about to lose access to ALDI for at least 2 years. There are no ALDIs in Darwin.
What can I say? At $1 each the children's toothbrushes were a great buy.
DH says we will have to have more children to use them up. I contend that the way Ginger chews her toothbrush we will be through them in no time.
Ginger and I got there early Thursday morning when their special buys start. The queue snaked right round the building. I had a private chuckle to myself - only in Australia, NZ, America or the UK would shoppers form a queue rather than just gathering en masse around the door.
I commented to the woman behind me that I hadn't expected this sort of demand for toothbrushes. Turns out there wasn't that sort of demand - Ginger and I were the only ones seeking out the toothbrushes; everyone else was there for the spring garden buys and bathroom accessories.
