Avril at Romsey

… and Lancefield and Riddells Creek and Mount Macedon

You are not going to believe this …

I’m meant to be getting ready to go and serve hot cross buns to people at the local farmers’ market, but I just had to tell you about this first.

Sitting in my lounge room, eating toast, drinking coffee, reading the paper, I hear a strange banging noise coming from outside. Look out, can’t see anything. Go back to reading. Then I hear the sound of something hitting my rubbish bin. Stand up, look out again and see – a KANGAROO. Kangaroo bounces around my car port for a while, before heading back down the driveway and out onto the street.

I’ve had to watch out for kangaroos while driving – but I’ve never had one actually in my garden before. I think my semi-rural town just became officially rural.

  1. What’s that Skip?…. the minister at Romsey has been eating too much chocolate?… Her rubbish bin was full of chocolate wrappers and she didn’t give any of it to you?

    … so you decided to show her who’s boss by roughing up her car a bit?

    It’s a conspiracy- the fauna’s out to get you! 🙂

  2. Which reminds me, thanks for the chilli chocolate, Caro. Eating it slowly, one piece every few days, and it’s incredible!

  3. Yeah, that chilli chocolate is quite impressive- I just love the smooth taste, followed by that exquisite afterburn sensation. 🙂

  4. Reminds me of the wombat Mothball (‘Diary of a Wombat’ by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley) who bashes up garbage bins to get what she wants. (The US edition of ‘Diary’ describes a wombat as like a bear, only smaller. Which would make a kangaroo like a rabbit, only bigger??)
