Well Joonie it was good to hear from you. You can keep the figs at your place. If I get another I shall post it over to you!
Outside my window two days ago most of the day the trees bent over and things blew about – winds were the same strength as cyclones – not much rain though. The electricity went out and as it got dark Mum lit the fire stove and cooked her dinner on it and also put little stick things about, which had a little flame on top. /She said she was glad for the battery radio! I missed my TV .. it came on again after eight hours but by then I was asleep. BUT I heard this morning, nearly 18 hours later, there are still over 20,000 homes without electricity. Bet people take more notice when the weather bureau says there will be dangerous winds!
Mum has spread out the garlic that was coming up from where she could not pull it out when ready last season. She will have lots of garlic in a few months. No seeds up yet but Mum said it was a bit early for them anyway.
I had more egg on toast yesterday for breakfast. MMMM.. and my beak is getting long again so I suppose I will be carted off to the vet soon.
Bye for now
