  1. I don’t like spiders – but will tolerate them outdoors.

    We had a St. Andy’s Cross near one of the taps; quite cute, really. The Tent Spiders in the garden are mostly harmless too. The Golden Orb Weavers (Nephila sp.) are huge, but have the sense to build their webs well up out of mischief – something the nocturnal grey Garden Orb Weavers haven’t quite figured out yet. (They’re nocturnal, so a torch is a must to avoid face-planting into an unwanted surprise.)

    The less said about scuttling Wolf Spiders, the better…

  2. Wonderful. I have eventually been able to extract some statistical information re my new grand-daughter.
    For those interested, she is 50 cm long and weighs 7.97 pounds in the old scale or 3450 gms.

    No wonder she took so long to arrive. Her mum is not exactly a big framed girl whatsoever. I understand that mum is very glad it is all over & she has no intention of repeating the exercise whatsoever! 😉

    Can’t say I blame her. I would hate to be in Labor for the best part of two days myself! 😉

  3. So much for small government.

    I take that back. The planned House of Lobbyists isn’t technically part of the government.

  4. Ducky,

    As a resident of Kooyong, I’ve had Andrew Peacock, Petro Georgiou, and Josh Frydenberg as my federal representative.

    I knew Frydenberg would be cringeworthy – just didn’t expect he would be quite so appalling.

  5. For those interested, here’s (hopefully & thanks to the wonderful Fiona) the first couple of pictures of my first, beautiful grand-daughter.

  6. Scorps,

    An absolute pleasure.

    Young Scorpionette looks completely unrepentant about causing her mama so much grief – and rightly so!

    I must say, I never cease to be thankful that my labour (not Labor) with DD lasted all of 7 hours 20 minutes, and she was only 6lb 11.5 oz in the old money – and had to be lifted out at the end because I’d run out of energy. Still, a much easier event than your daughter.

    Also a much easier event than any of my late MIL’s labours. The first (OH) was 11lbs, the second 12lbs, the third 14lb, and the fourth I can’t remember. She did have some *cough* gynecological complications after all that.

  7. I’ve got no idea who’s hand that is there holding the baby, but can guarantee it is not Eva’s father. He doesn’t have any freckles whatsoever. 😉

  8. Scorps,

    It’s alright, we know you are the ecstatic maternal grandfather – besides, I’m sure several Pubsters could identify that hand if necessary.

  9. Fiona,

    It’s alright, we know you are the ecstatic maternal grandfather – besides, I’m sure several Pubsters could identify that hand if necessary.

    But only if they live in Charleville! Bet there’s not too many who can! 😉

    Granted, I’ll give you ecstatic. This is something that has never happened to me before & never will again. Wonderful is not expressive enough to describe it!

    Dog willing, with 2 more younger daughters & giving I live long enough, I might just experience becoming a grandfather to a grand-daughter or 2 again, but it’s a long shot at the moment.

    Still, as they say, “only the good die young”, so there’s hope for me yet. 😉

  10. Fiona,

    I must say, I never cease to be thankful that my labour (not Labor)

    There was a reason why I used the US version. Eli/Eva’s mum is quite the Labor supporter. There’s no way that she would consider the labour movement to blame for her Labor! 😉

  11. Dear Scorps,

    You have every reason for your joy. May Eva – like your other grandchildren – be a delight to you forever, and a stalwart supporter of things Labor (just like her mum . . .).
