Yesterday was a good day. Long and tiring but good. In the morning, the car was sorted. Just the exhaust pipe. Haaaaaallelujah (sung in wavering falsetto, of course). I then picked up the parents and we went out for lunch followed by an aimless drive in the afternoon…

…which led us to two places, one of which was a landscaping centre. We were driving by and it drew in my mum ‘cos there were these bougainvilleas and my mum’s been wanting to get a certain type for my bro.

While my mum’s doing her thing, I go walkies and find this tiny pond with these lovely waterlilies! I usually see ‘em singularly, never bunched together like this. Score Smile

I was gonna upload this last night but I was just too knackered.

Ooo…I’ve just noticed that the little star under my name now says 5 instead of 4. I checked and indeed, it was the 17th of August 2006 when I joined. So my 5th EPZ birthday was yesterday Smile

5 good years having met many wonderful people and their fabulous photographs. Thanks, Pete.
