Furry visitors and Day 2




Well Day 2 and 2 parcels posted today - one to my sister in the UK so a major tick off my list!!!

We had 2 very special visitors to our home this week. I had a knock on the door from a lady to tell me I had a Mummy and baby koala up my gum tree in the front yard. She had seen it on the road and followed it to protect it. It had come in our yard and headed up to our front door first before finding our tree and spending the rest of the day there. They moved on in the darkness of night as is their usual habit. It is unusual for us to see a koala in town but we loved having them. I did waste quite a bit of time watching them especially the baby who was mischievious, he kept climbing higher away from Mum reaching out for leaves and then rushing back when he realised he was on very fragile branches!! I think she was very relieved when he finally settled in for a siesta.

This photo is taken as they were heading to our front door!

How cool is that!! I'd love to have Koalas visiting, but I don't think they'll come all the way to Norway...
