....7 years, 7 months and 2 days to get this picture :) My first digital camera ( an Olympus C750UZ ) arrived in the mail on the 24th February 2004, and ever since it arrived I've wanted to photograph the Superb Fairy-Wrens that frequent my garden, a task that unfortunatly turned out to be easier said than done due to them being far to quick and far to shy to get close enough for a decent shot. However these past few weeks I've noticed them becoming quite cheeky and have even caught them sitting on the back step a few times. Well late this afternoon while I was out in pursuit of a Buff-banded Rail , this little guy finally decided to put on a show for me :)

I've had my little rant *lol* so now for some long over due pic's. This gorgeous little guy is 2nd cousin to my kids, his Mummy is just 3 weeks older than my own daughter and they grew up together till she moved away a few years ago. I was so happy they brought the gorgeous little guy to visit when he was just 17 days old. I ordered some prints this week to give as a baby gift since I haven't given them one yet, I can't wait for them to arrive and see how they look ♥
today I deactivated my facebook account, Wow I still don't believe I did it, but I did. Why? when I first joined facebook it was a fun way to keep up with friends and family and see what they were up to, but lately all the people I'd like to keep up with are dropping quietly into the background, and all I ever seem to see posted is people complaining about one thing or another, or talking about how drunk they were going to get/or had got that day, ok fair enough use facebook to vent every now and then if you need to blow of steam, heck I've done it myself from time to time, but lately that seems to be all anyone ever posts and it really was starting to get me down. I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who doesn't go out and get drunk every weekend. I've had a bit of a bad week this week, 3 out of 4 kids have been down sick, the youngest of those has been very upset and crying/screaming a lot, I've been getting very little sleep and could see myself starting to become one of those facebook whingers which I really don't want to become, so for the first time since signing up 3 years ago I decided to seperate myself from facebook completely, and the only way I could think to do that was to deactivate my account so I did. No doubt it will only be a temporary move and I'll be back, but for now I'm taking a break and taking a long hard think about who's on my friends list and think it will be getting a major cull upon my return as honestly I don't think I even know half the people on there. Oh and one last thing, as lovely as some of the status are that get copy and pasted are, after the 50 millionth time you've read something that year it really does loose it's original intent.
