You know how it is when sometimes you do something for somebody because you want to, not because you have to... and then bam! A pay it forward gift. A very similar scarf to this, courtesy of Mrs Pudding. Mrs Fluid Pudding. The extremely generous Mrs Fluid Pudding. The extremely talented and kind Mrs Fluid Pudding. Need I say more?
In other news, it was cold and wet in Perth, giving me a fabulous opportunity to take some photos:
It was cold, but just a bit atmospheric... wonderful...
I also got some nice 5" squares at the local market, some smelly soap, and a jar of fabulous Armenian pickled cucumber slices - yummy.
We did a lot of relaxing, and a bit of socialising - OGF Kaz & Az had also come over for the weekend, on their way to a week of wine tasting in the South of WA, and Az cooked one of his special feasts:
which finished up looking like this:
and which was delicious - and so was the scenery:
There were some beautiful blue wrens flying about, and this amazing robin, but they were too quick for me - probably should have put the quick shot thingy on the camera, but hey, I'm old & slow - and trees are easier to take than birds...
Well. Some birds, anyway:
Truly the fattest bird I have ever seen. Definitely not a carrier pigeon... and now? Bed!
