Wildlife Encounter

So I was taking some rubbish to the bin the other day, as you do, and when I opened it I got the fright of my life:



"Mr Possum" as we called him must have desperately wanted something in it during the night and then not been able to get out again went to sleep. I shut the lid and checked on him again late in the day where he was still fast asleep. Before the sun went down I opened the lid and left it open so he could get out. He was gone the next day. I know some people find possums a nuisance and they can be noisy (especially when they have running races overhead at night) but they are still so cute.

Have you had any unexpected wildlife encounters?

Woollybutts Auctions

The Woollybutts Auctions mentioned earlier in this post are now underway and will finish by the end of the week. The proceeds from the auctions will go to the Kate Buntine Foundation.This foundation provides financial assistance to families of Type 1 Diabetic juveniles starting on pumps. They fill the gap that private health, the government and Medicare miss; sometimes only $300 .. which for a struggling family .. is huge. Sometimes they purchase the $8000 worth of equipment if a child struggles on needles and has really hard to manage diabetes.

So please head on over and check out some of the gorgeous things on offer. Here is a small sample of well over 30 items:
