in Queensland at the moment. Lots more up north, but here in the South East corner we are having a lot of it as well. Hope you are coping ok if there is plenty of precipitation in your neck of the woods.
We are luckily not in a flood situation, but can occasionally have some flash flooding on local roads in a particularly big downpour. Apparently that may (or may not) be happening later today. We'll see.
I really don't mind as I'm happily ensconced at home today on my day off. Doing some decluttering (yes really) sorting out lots of home office work. Time will tell how much actually gets done. It's such a nice day for reading.......
Isn't she pretty? Our new(ish) addition to the family. She wandered in (must have heard about the good conditions here) and settled in quite nicely thanks very much.
I've heard that peacocks are wanderers and have asked about the place and advertised, but no one seems to have missed her.
She looks funny out grazing with the other hens! She seems to be quite fond of our little bantam rooster too ... hmm. She has already gone broody and sat on some eggs for a few weeks - to no avail! They are large eggs about the size of large duck eggs.
I've heard too that they are quite noisy, but that is probably the male - as usual. She does have a funny call, but we aren't too close to neighbours, so they don't seem to mind. For me, it is a bit of an alarm clock - right when I should be waking at 5am.
cheers for now
thanks for all the comments - good to know there's someone out there!
