It is that time of the year again when my lovely perfumed cattlya is floweing and after I had taken its photo I realised I had Oscar sleeping on the couch in the sunroom behind it. Not that there was much sun but he does like to move around the house (and leave hair behind!) we also walked this morning, neither of us feeling terribly brilliant but it was lovely on the cliffs watching some surfers and the light and play of sun and shadow on the sea. I am not the only one having problems both with blogger and with picasa at the moment so I dont think it is my fault, but another one has popped up today. I do wish that those lovely little egg heads who decide to mess with something would double check that all is working properly first. I am so fed up you may not see or hear from me for a while until I get some answers on all of this.

I have been having terrible problems with blogger and I am not sure how to get it fixed, what I have been told to do to fix it doesnt. I await to see if finally they come to their senses and all will be well again. I admit I have had to have this computer fixed but the little notebook is doing the same so I dont think it is in the mechanics. Enough, with any luck the photos will follow. It has been very wintry for the last few days, so the fire and knitting and hot soup sound like good options. I just hate trying to work my way through computer stuff I dont understand. we went into the market this morning, a lot of cold looking people, and then it rained, so we went down to think about a walk and as you can see in the photo (if I can get it up) it didnt look at all promising so we came home. I had fun with this little bird I found in Cloth Paper scissors, but it is a lot more fiddly than I first hoped. I have a few more to make but this one is on its way to New Zealand. Off to see if I can load the photos.

I hate this new set up my computer, why when they go in to be fixed do they come home completely different to the way it was!!! I cant find or fix anything. Any way once more my script has gone on this post. I think what it was meant to say was... we went over to Goolwa this morning and then down to the Mundoo channel boat ramp and on to walk but the samphire flats were full of water so we went on to where you can see the mouth of the river Murray, it has moved a lot further south and was hard to see but we walked along the tidal flats and saw lots of birds, pelicans and a myriad of different sea birds, swans and a large egret by where we had parked the car. A warbird flew overhead. It was magic, but cold. We had a minus 2 frost this morning so I hope I havent lost too much in the garden. I am still wearing two jumpers as it was so cold, even with the fire roaring and the heater on in the kitchen this end of the house is cold. We had a lovely lunch at the Anchorage, they do a great Coorong Mullet focaccio and a coffee, loads of people there, but it was very pleasant, if a bit chilly sitting on the veranda

Interesting, I couldnt post any script on the last one, Basically what I said was that in the National Park we saw emu and the lovely plants, templetonia or parrot beak and the white melaleuca and then went out to the spectacular Golden Beach area looking back to the sandhills. The young kangaroo was in our back garden eating the lawn, we looked at each other and then off she hopped. The young 18 month old wombat was being hand rear4ed by the lass in the ral estate office, her mother had been killed by a car and this little one was tiny and hairless, so she has done a good job with her. Now we are really in winter, cold and pouring rain, ok inside, it is just when I have to go out and feed up it gets interesting.

Such a lovely place, a beautiful day too. We drove the 200 odd kms up the coast on Thursday.
The people we spoke to about Stewie were great and told us where to go to see where it had all happened.
On a day like this it was hard to imagine how awful it was on Easter Saturday.
I walked the 5km round trip and we could see how dangerous the waves would have been and how fast the tide would come in and out through the very narrow gap, it was a miracle any one survived.
Later we had lunch and spoke to the local store keeper who had organised the early search, the cliffs are limestone, full of cracks, sharp edges not a nice place.
I felt quite emotional but so glad I had been there to see it all. The photos just dont do it justice and I just wish I knew how to enlarge them.
We are now home, I have more lovely photos of the last few days.
I am terribly tired and this wretched cold is not helping.
Washing is being slowly done, and I am slowly trying to put stuff away and tidy up
Oh I think I know what to do, click html and not compose, hope this works!
