HS:MS - Fall

To move downwards rapidly.

I don't have any fall in my space today and I think it might be classed as child abuse if I trip the kids up just for a photograph. So I am going to cheat today with a couple of pictures I took 2 years ago at Niagara Falls.
.






We got yet another addition to the family last night which was a bit unplanned. We have somehow managed to get a baby Bearded Dragon for free as a bloke from Pete's work didn't want it anymore, knew we had lizards and asked if we would have it. The idea was to pick it up and keep it until we could give it to our niece who was going to sell it on for us, but as things are we have all fallen in love with it. It hasn't been well looked after at all the vivarium was far too small, filthy, smelly, it had no light and no food. We have put it in a bigger house that is nice and clean, it now has everything it needs apart from the UV bulb which I will get today. We have no idea what sex it is at the moment but should find out today so we have called it a Unisex name "Puff" (the magic dragon who doesn't live by the sea). Pete's first suggestion was "Mary" which is my mother's name but somehow I don't think she would like being known as a bearded dragon.

It's the last day before the big return to school for Matt and start of High School for Kyle. So today will be spent shopping for packed lunch bits and pieces, getting bags ready and tiding bedrooms. Then tomorrow I can get back to my normal routine without any interuptions - YAY!
