The birds

A few days retreat to Aireys to finish Celia's unpacking and bringing the dinner service and pots back for West Welcome Wagon.
Also cleared out the bathroom ready for the renovation in January.(and listing the stuff in the bungalow Marko will take to the tip)
He also offered to set two insect bombs to clear the spiders! Never thought of that
Also spent a lovely evening reading all Celia's scrapbooks before putting them up on the shelf (Lots of good stair climbing workouts!)

But I arrived to a lovely sight of this fellow sitting on the lawn then moving to the nearby tree Then he was joined by another. They stayed the whole time I was there  ringing out the sunset with a good laugh!

Surry Hills Sydney

Had a lovely 2 days in Sydney doing the Children's Nursing Conference, and met up for dinner wiht Pam and Bob (Nursing July 66) who in a small world know someone working with Celia in NY!
I went for a walk each day and really enjoyed the quirky and old area of Sydney. Small house, opening directly to the footpath, Overhang verandas and a great street garden, and a puzzle of padlocks!

This looks hazardous and with out opening door

Cute little balcony
