Summer Wildlife in the Suburbs

A grey, brown and white koala - Phascolarctos cinereus - sits in the fork of a eucalyptus bough, resting it's forepaws and head on one of the branches, its body facing towards the camera. Meanwhile its left leg is hanging outstretched with its claws around a tiny shoot.
Sleepy koala.

Summer has arrived. 

The neighbourhood creatures 
are on the move …

Recovery Mode

Festival Theatre ticket for the Kitty Flanagan show called "Smashing"

Today is very quiet as I recover from the night before.
It is the Sunday after the Saturday night in the city.  
I'm sure we've all had one of those!

But it's not what you think. 

Pretty tame, really, but for a body like mine, an evening out without a nap in the afternoon beforehand is the equivalent of partying non-stop through a long weekend with no breaks.  Like a 'smashing' fun party, it was worth it for the experience and the memories but it will take a while to recover.

Sigh … Yes, there are beds to be made, dishes and laundry to be done and a house to tidy and a week to plan. Do you think I am physically up to those tasks? No!

So the next best thing to do is to laze around and catch up on blogging!  
(Yes, it has been quite a while!)
