Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!


my photo

want to see where i've been ...

As it happens I didn't need a month's supply of kitkats, I don't really think I had any of you fooled. The little fellow above has probably given the game away, we have just returned from a fantastic trip to Australia, with two stopovers of Hong Kong and Singapore.

As I don't want memories of our trip taking over my home blog, I leave it up to you whether you click on Postcards from Oz to discover more about our adventures down under and in the Far East, although the journal may take a while to complete!

The koala above was living in the Featherdale Wildlife Park up in the Blue Mountains just north of Sydney, but we did see his friends and family in their natural habitat too, on Kangaroo Island.

Did you know a koala spends 75% of its time asleep, on some days that would seem like a good idea!

I think Tennyson has a lot in common with koalas;)

Chelle said...

Wow! That is so awesome. I've never seen a koala in real life. What a cute little guy. :) You must have had an awesome time. I'm glad you're back and can now share your experiences and pictures. :)

Bet you had a wonderful time. One of my dreams is to go to New Zealand.

I don't think I'd want to sleep for 75% of my day because I can think of so many things I want to do that just wouldn't get done!

Ooh! Off to see your postcards :-)

I have been so tired all day, 75% sleep sounds fab!

Thanks for you message, yes I did draw the cupcake/butterfly thang, glad you liked it! ;o)

Hi Louise, pleased to hear you had a great time. I stayed with friends in the Blue Mountains a while ago and it was beautiful. I bet you are feeling the cold now that you're home again!

Hi Louise,
Welcome back!
Koalas are so lucky it seems although if you slept 75% of the time you would miss so much wouldn't you?
The little piglet you posted is just adorable.
Love Kristina XxX

Hello Louise... who could resist a look at your postcards.. I have been dying to see your travel journal.. as I am pretty much an armchair traveller these days..
I think I could well be related to a Koala..well more wishful thinking.

I sometimes spend quite a bit of time gawing at your other blog that I completely missed the link for this one. How will I get anything done? I must take the tour. Thank-you.

The word I was looking for was gawking. I DID get lost in your archives last night and ended up on a page I thought was yours but her name was Beverly. (shrugging my shoulders and smiling)
