Spring has sprung with a surprise!

Well tonight is the last night of winter here in Australia. I am sure the coolness will stick around for a little while longer still, but already the days until about 2pm are much warmer and sunnier (today I wore a t-shirt & cropped jeans!)... Tomorrow spring is here and then it’s onto another ‘stinking hot’ Australian summer... I really am a winter girl I think, I love the cold. But nothing beats a lovely warm spring day (not disgustingly hot, just nice & warm) sitting in the sun, having a cool drink, playing with my pets, having a good conversation and taking nice photos (oh on the photo front I have some BIG new; this afternoon I got a lovely surprise – tell you the details soon!). I am very much so looking forward to spring/summer barbeques in the afternoon/late evening, oh and summer clothes I do like my summer wardrobe though; I have a HUGE supply of denim shorts (when I say HUGE I mean GIGANTIC!) I just got a new pair just this last Saturday from City Beach, they are small denim shorts with a white lace underlay – totally cute and cannot wait to wear those little beauties this summer (& hopefully at some point in spring!) with maybe my fancy cowboy boots – HA HA.

These are my new shorts - very cute I think.

Last night whilst randomly using Google (well a Kelle Hampton photo inspired me to Google ‘squirrels’ – check out her blog it’s amazing!), I discovered some baby squirrel photos & how damn cute are they! Why doesn’t Australia have a large supply of squirrels!? They are seriously without a doubt the cutest little furry animals... Check out these cute little guys, I wish spring time in Australia meant a surge of squirrels hurrying around everywhere... But for now I just look at photos... (*I also love spring it means lots of baby animals!)
This is Kelle's photo from her blog about her trip to New York that inspired me to google the squirrel pics!
But seriously how damn cute - I really wish Australia had squirrels.
I laugh at how cute these last two pictures are. Squirrels - worlds biggest posers!
*Squirrel thought confession for many years I've wondered if I can import squirrels to Australia? Is there a market for squirrels if I was to start a squirrel farm perhaps... I could shave them! Shave them and sell their fur so people could stop killing other animals for fur... Not shave them so I have a bunch of nude squirrels running around...  Lol... Just a thought.

Onto the camera news; this afternoon Trent came home and asked me if I wanted to go check out some cameras he had been looking at (for my birthday the number 1 gift I wanted was a decent camera!). So off we trotted to our local camera store to check them out and these guys had a super great deal going for a Canon camera (I wanted either a Nikon or Canon)... So we decided to get the Canon as it was more value for money. So I am now a proud owner of a brand new Canon EOS – 500D camera!! (The pack included; a tri-pod, Canon camera bag, 55-250mm lens, memory card, training session (online & in-store), filters & membership into a VIP club where I get TONS of free prints!) So I was pretty impressed with that extra loot & even more impressed with the price (it was a similar price to just the camera body alone at bigger stores, so for an extra $100’ish I got all the extra stuff!). So get ready to see some (hopefully!) good photos on here ASAP! I should probably mention a HUGE thank you to my lovely fiancĂ© Trent – thank you for my camera babe. Love you tons & appreciate all you do...

My lovely shiny new Canon... So very happy!! Expect TONS of cool photos to come soon!

So now I leave you with some “typical spring” pictures (all credit goes to the photographers/editors of these) & a few photos of Paddington enjoying his latest favourite food sweet potato (he likes it grated or in chunks!)
Aw even deer would be cute for spring time... (God, please take note of this & ship some new animals to Australia, even though I really love Australian wildlife squirrels & deer are VERY cute!)
Spring time = baby animals!! aww little pig!
Oi cat stop looking at my sweet potato!
nom nom nom - raw sweet potato... Love this little guy.
What a lovely image. (*credit to the owner) Very "spring"
Spring = beautiful flowers and green grass!


  1. When I was in the northern states in the U.S. I say deer all the time. They really are wonderful in person. You should visit the U.S.

    Austrailia has a lot of cool animals too though!

  2. Thank you Brittany, I love Australian wildlife very much (that little wallaby in the photos was a little guy I actually hand raised, he has now been released...) I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to come visit the U.S... I dream about doing it one day!! Ooo I am jealous you've seen lots of deer.
    Thank you for the comment

  3. At this time it sounds like Expression Engine is the preferred
    blogging platform available right now. (from
    what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
