Wet clothes wet woes

What can I say wet clothes in the dinning room, my socks drying on the table well at least they are clean, well been through the washing machine.  
But did get my second path done, does stop the boggy bit in the back yard.
The garden is loving all this rain.
me not so much.

All seeds Drummy or Pidge drop sprout, even got green shoots inside the back door  but al least the wood is dry so we can have a inside fire tonight.
,

Maybe get the clothes dry.
Leeroy is in her favourite spot and Kidney is in bed with the beer fairy, both sound asleep.
Not much to do in this sort of weather.
The photo is a bit blurry but I've never seen so many doves on my neighbours roof before, this was a few days ago before the rains hit.

Winter sunshine.

Would you believe it the middle of winter, wonderful sunshine but it did bucket down most of the week before can't complain about the weather now.

Drummy pecks at your legs who knows why but she also pecks at the washing on the clothes line and talks to it, she is a very odd chicken.



Does any one know what this is and does it flower. BO Peep gave it to me he said it had a wonderful flower but he can't remember what it looks like or what it is, I've had it a couple of years and so far nothing.,
My new path, this wood is treated so can't be burnt so I've started to build paths with it



Might have enough to do this area too, usually just put bark on it but that doesn't last very long it breaks up and becomes mulch quickly.
My daughter, we all went baby shopping and to Cosco is that spelt right and Spotlight I did get some  bamboo blend wool there.
Life was not ment to be easy unless you are a cat.
I bought these home from my daughters place after a coat of paint they look a lot better one done two more to go.
The garden was very waterlogged but drying out fast.




Building a new path, there were puddles everywhere when we had our heavy rain.

The beer fairy checking out some old Playboys he found in the shed, there are many, I said you know those ladies are most likely in their 60's now, he said well the haven't aged in his mind. I think Drummy wants a look too.

We are all winners and lots of rain.

A busy week this week so far, after a weekend of massive rainfall we had all May's rainfall and some of Junes in one weekend, lots and lots of leaves and a few broken branches and masses of wet firewood everywhere.  Lots of damage to the coasts from king tides, some of the very expensive houses lost their back yards and foundations, one even lost a swimming pool into the ocean why you would have a swimming pool when you you live on the beach is beyond me.
We didn't go to Bingo on Monday as no one was 100% and lots to do at home so we went Tuesday and we were all winners Barbara and I both won at bingo and her mum won on the poker machines now that never happens, well not much.  
The club was full of dancers, local schools often have shows there but this was more like a final competition as all different groups were there, loved the pirates, so much noise and excitement.

We went for a walk around Bankstown after Bingo, I've never seen this statue before so we stopped to read all about why it was there.
I was after bamboo wool, very hard to get this year for the coming grandchildren it's lovely to knit and lovely to wear, good if you have skin problems it was in all the shops a few years ago no luck so far this year.
On the way home we called into a friends place .
I couldn't resist taking photos he has lot's of things of interest in his back yard, it's the middle of winter so the plants are not at their best, but this little lady cheers the place up a lot.

The wombat is in no danger the croc is a bit small.
You never know when you will want one.
Or a beer with a croc, he will want you for after beer snack.
I do love this table maybe not used so much in the winter good for barbques.

all his water bowls are full of fresh rainwater too.

Great little bridge so the ducks don't get their feet wet.



And a kangaroo hiding


The pond was very empty after all the rain, it has a leak.


Blue skies and sunshine on the way home
but didn't last long the sun was sinking very fast

That's all for today, talk to you soon.
