My David Attenborough moment

Today I saw a Blue Tongue lizard in the yard. It was stripey like a Tiger Snake. No one else seemed to understand how exciting it was. I tried to get a photo but it just looks like a twig because I took it from so far away. I wasn't game to get too close because my Uncle used to have one as a pet and my mother insists it bit peoples toes; also it was very still, so I was afraid it was dead and being feasted apon by creepy crawlies, which would have been icky and spoiled the moment.

P.S. It's also my Dad's 60th birthday today. He doesn't generally read the blog but still - happy birthday!!!

Oh, how very exciting, we used to have a few that lived under the daphne bush when I was little and they would terrorise Bruce our dog!! Oh, you could have your own show: David Stashenborough!!!

Ooohh, I am a bit more scared of lizards than creepy crawlies! When I was visiting a relative in QLD they had a frill necked lizard that lived near their pool. I could only swim on one side!

aaaw lizards are cute! I dont like it when our cats catch them..I make them leave it alone if its still alive so hopefully they can go off happily.

Will you make it to the last knitting group of the year?

Belated happy birthday to your father.
