What happens after you push your body for so long...?

You get sick... Dreadfully sick. As I have been for the last few days. The day after we stopped cleaning the old house and finally had a day of rest I woke up with the worst head cold ever. I feel so absolutely horrid. Body has pretty much given up.
So on our last day at the house I peeked into the bird nest and... they are gone! I don't know if they flew away or if they were... god forbid, eaten. Freaked out. Scanned the ground for little bodies, but no sign. Hubby thinks they just flew away but I don't know if they were old enough to fly yet. I mean, do birds fly a week after hatching? They don't do they? I don't know... The nest is intact, so nothing attacked them in there. My son said he saw them flying about with the parents. But I didn't see them :( It's a mystery...
The beach has been wonderful (apart from my cold). It's still pretty cold, being the beginning of spring, so we can't wait until it is warm enough to go for a swim. We checked out our route to the beach... We are like, five minutes walk away! The view from our balcony is great. My son loves seeing all of the big container ships that come past on their way to the port of Brisbane.
Went to the local second hand shop and found a beautiful wood and wrought Iron bed, a book shelf for hubby's dvds a recliner for Hubby, and the cutest little cupboard with woven baskets for my vegies. All of it gets delivered on Wednesday. YAY!
Anyway, time to get back to some normality.


  1. Sending good thoughts your way Sprite; I hope you feel better soon :-)

  2. I hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse than trying to get a home organized while you feel miserable.

  3. *jealous face* re: the beach is 5 minutes away AND it's the beginning of spring.
    Feel better soon.

  4. Sorry if I sneezed on you! I'm just getting over mine. AAAAAchooooo!

  5. Sorry that you're sick, but glad the whole move is over & done with. Maybe the baby honeyeaters are okay & just moved on. Better than the alternative, right?

  6. Awww, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I hope you feel better really soon! *Hugs*

  7. @Nubian Especially when the brain is all fuzzy from cold meds.
    @dbs it is very cool.. LOL
    @Carole. I wondered when I caught it from...!
    @vinny I know, that's what I want to believe to.
    @Frisky Thank you so much. I'll take the hugs... Hubby won't come near me all festy..lol.

  8. I got it too sweet so I am sharing your pain. Hope you feel better soon.

  9. Sorry to hear you have a cold, hope it goes away quickly and you get some rest.

    The birds, actually there are species that hatch and leave the nest before they can fly, so i think they are fine and sticking with it.

    You in quarantine?

  10. @Mynx Oh you to, thanks Mynxy!
    @Ant Yes Quarantine, I have to carry around a plastic bag to put my tissues in, so I don't infect the boys.
    I am hoping that the birdies are the kind that do that, they DID seem to grow very quickly, in such a short time.
    "untruck"...PFFFT!! lol :)

  11. I just found your blog and I'm enjoying the descriptive, earnest quality of your writing. I hope you feel better and I look forward to reading more.

  12. @Stephen Thanks a lot! you are most welcome.


I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
