Kate, where have you been?!

It has been a while hasn’t it?  Quite a change from the daily posts I had been putting up.  Time to get back to it!  So what have I been doing instead of sitting in front of the computer this last week?

I visited five new bookshops and frequented the local a couple of times.  I may have acquired a few more books.

And one notebook. A writer can never have too many notebooks.

I went to a primary school fete, shot Daffy Duck off his perch and won myself a dragon.

Could AshCat BE any more cranky?

I checked out the Practically Green Festival in Eltham and dodged this lovely lady.

I even went out with friends (shocking, I know).

Alcoholic beverages are sparkly these days. How times have changed.

And now it’s time to hide back in my shell once more.  I’ve used up my social quota for the next year.

Triple digits!

I made it to 100 followers! I never thought I would make it this far and I would like to thank all of you for finding my writing interesting enough to keep looking at it in your reader day after day. I don’t write for followers – besides the not so subtle post yesterday – and it’s great to think that people like me for me, not some manufactured Kate Turville robot.

From William Lloyd and Aether House who have been with me from the start, posting their thoughts consistently, to the new follower smilyking1976 who discovered my blog last night, I appreciate you all. You stay classy, followers.

In other news, I had to take AshCat to the vet yesterday and when I opened his carry box I discovered a family of redback spiders living in it. Needless to say the box ended up here:

It has been sprayed and rained on.  I'm now just waiting on a thunderbolt, then I may venture outside and pick it up again.

Looks like it’s going to be another beautiful day!

I had to take a picture of the treetops because my backyard is infested with triffids.

Spring has finally arrived in Melbourne! A perfect Sunday to go to the local market and buy some amazing produce and listen to some not so good busking.

Bonus points if you know what feijoas are.  Also, honey made by a koala.  Delicious.

Even AshCat was enjoying the sunshine.

Wow my house looks dank.

So I decided to take him out for a walk. He didn’t like the walk. Some birds swooped him and he was sad.

AshCat contemplating life.  Or staring down a triffid.  Either one.

It doesn’t seem like a day to be inside, so I’m going to do this quick post and venture back out and soak up the Vitamin D. Have an excellent Sunday everyone and let me know what you’re up to on this fabulous day!
