Chookie, these are lovely little birds.  We have seen them and their nests at DS place.  I would find it hard to choose a favourite.  We have King Parrots, Blue Wrens, Rosellas & Wattle Birds here.

I'm still busy clearing out things for the carpet layers.  Because most of the house has polished boards I even have to clear out the bottom of the built in robes and linen cupboards.  Our kitchen looks like a storage house with all the boxes stacked up.

We are not footy fans here so only flicked channels to see who was ahead.  I am pleased that Melbourne won as it has been a long time between wins for them.

Jacket potatoes last night with salad.  It maybe takeaway tonight.

Cookie, I hope your back recovers quickly.

I ordered the carpets yesterday and now have a couple of busy weeks ahead of me.  We decided to pay to have the furniture moved and the carpet people will arrange that for a price of course but I think it is well worth it.  I still have to empty the cupboards and bookcases etc.  I have just finished doing the crystal cabinet and one book case so that is two down.  DIL took 4 bags of books to the op shop for me.  I filled 2 more bags with unwanted items this morning.

A cold day here too Chookie.  So pleased to hear that Ral's results are good.

I also cook for 4.  With DS home most of the time it nearly always goes.  Anything left over DS will take for lunch or we have it for our lunch.

A boneless chicken roast with herb & apricot stuffing from Coles tonight.  Cooked in the AF.  Not sure what veggies to do yet.

Thanks Cookie.  We certainly felt it here, the house shook, cupboard doors flew open, china rattled but nothing broken.  DH checked outside and we have  a couple of cracks in the brick work and a few inside as well but nothing major.  I hope everyone else is ok.

Everyone's cooking looks good especially all that bread.  Very little cooking being done here.  If I make a cake or biscuits they just seem to get left and end up going out to the birds.

We have decided to have our house carpeted, we have only had carpet in the lounge area and it is starting to look a bit tatty, the rest is wooden flooring.   The carpet man came this morning to measure up.  We have no firm quote yet but will probably go ahead any way.  We will need to have the work done a couple of rooms at a time so that the furniture can be moved around.  A big job but a good time for a big clean out.

The curtain man is coming this afternoon to measure up for new net curtains in the lounge  as well.

We have been very lucky with the covid virus so far.  There were two cases early last year but I have seen on the news that there are a few cases now further up the valley.

Thank you everyone for the kind wishes for DH.  He is a little better today and moving around rather slowly.

Marina I had a good chuckle at the little video.  The dog seemed to be really enjoying itself.

DH hurt his back again yesterday morning.  He simply bent down to pick something up and couldn't get back up again.  He has spent most of yesterday and today either laying flat or sitting quietly and reading.
