Jottings from the Tropics: 27 January 2012

Nothing happened today. Actually, that's not strictly true. I had to go into town this morning, but that wasn't even remotely eventful. And then I came home and worked. And am still working. And will probably not finish today's 'to do' list until the small hours. (Hmmmm. If I don't make a list, would that mean there's nothing to do? Makes note. Damn. That's something.)

Even the pademelons could not shift my focus, although they tried. Oh, they tried. I saw Red with his nose pressed against the window, willing me to go to the fridge and get him something to eat. It didn't work. Later I heard Pip menacing the brush turkeys. I think it was Pip. It was unlikely to be any other paddie, because most of them are too timid. And Red doesn't bother with the threats. He usually just belts them without warning. It's marsupials red in tooth and claw around here.

But what this means is that I have nothing to report. How. Can. This. Be?

Well I think that means you should refund all our monies; I think that's only fair.

You make a good point, jj! Expect a cheque in the post.

Btw, hope you had a fun time with the van + kids.
