I am still playing around with this little water-colour set. 

We are at that lovely point in winter where all the wattles and hardenbergias come out and the early jonquils appear. Such deliciously fresh colours.

We put a convex mirror in the hallway recently. The fish-eye view is intriguing.

I was lucky enough to have a mini sleep-in this morning and woke up with enough energy to clean the (very dirty) house and to marshal the boys and get them cleaning too. All the windows are open to let in the fresh air on this sunny winter’s day. A flock of cockatoos just flew over, making the most ear-piercing shrieks.

I hope you are enjoying the sights and sounds around you today.
