Rain! and a bird

Well I hope the bird gets here I may have to do it seperately as it isnt showing, but the leaves on the lemon tree are showing dropws of rain. We actually had 55 mm which is a huge rain for us in February.
Last night John and I and half of Victor Harbor went to see 'The Kings Speech' and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a terrible time that poor man had, a stupid brother, a father with no idea, nannies who abused him. No wonder he stuttered. What a wonderful King he made during such adversity.
I have been playing around with a heap of textile stuff, and finally got this little bird made. The legs are supposed to be covered in brown florists tape but as I didnt have any I thought the red wire looked quite nice.
I am supposed to be doing so many things, none of which are getting done, oh well, we did at least go for a walk this morning, even though I forgot the camera, yes I who never go anywhere without it, forgot it. Not that there was much to see, just the usual beach photos and I probably could have fudged a few from my files but I didnt so you got two boring tree branches and possibly a bird!

I saw the movie in early January and I loved it.
I don't think I have ever enjoyed a movie so much before.

Wasn't he a wonderful King, Penny? A man who did not want to be king but who nevertheless carried on his responsibilities and his empire through that harrowing war with great courage. At least that is how it seemed to us who were inspired by him, though at a distance across The Pond. I am looking forward to that movie.
