Some love for the weekend10/09/2010 09:02:00 pm
This morning we took the girls to Bunny Wonderland... bunny boarding is a niche area and I wasn't really sure what to expect.
We had to trek far into the Hills district and my navigation skills were not quite up to par. There were lots of very very big churches (hello Mormons!). All the houses had more than 3 garages and were modeled in the Tudor/thatched barn/pointed roof style. The hedges were very well manicured, as were the lawns. We both felt like we were being watched, and I wouldn't have been surprised to spot a CCTV tracking our movements as we drove through the neighbourhood. There was a community message board near Coles, with a local, handwritten message advising of as upcoming community meeting with the local member, and signed, Margaret, with a flourish.
Presumably if you live in the area, you know Margaret.
So, as I say, I wasn't sure what to expect when we turned up at Bunny Wonderland. I hadn't really imagined a very big house with three garages, three stories, and quite a few steps up to the front door. And also, I wasn't really expecting the video intercom. When we rang the bell and heard dog's barking, and a lady answered in her pyjamas, I had an uncomfortable feeling that this was not right house and perhaps we were about to get arrested.
Luckily, it was the right house, and the two doggles were very friendly. I'm not sure how the bunnies felt about being barked at, but after an hour in the car they were shitting themselves anyway, so I'd say the dogs just added to the morning. The girls will be staying in a two-level cage, and they will be fed lots of types of veggies, and organic herbs. The lady even asked what kind of pellets the girls prefer...I did tell her that they aren't picky, but I was too embarrassed to say that they eat everything, including fast food, wine, and paper...
After dropping the girls at Wonderland, we drove around for a while (that was more because of my navigational issues, as noted above) and I procured a waterproof camera. A Panasonic FT2, in case you were wondering. Buying a new camera was actually cheaper than a marine housing for my real camera. Capitalism, check.
Then I spent the remainder of the day alternating between the bed, the couch, and the bathroom. I think I got food poisoning or something (never eating Portugese chicken ever again) and have been generally unwell since last night.
To brighten myself up, I have been spending lots of time on Etsy, finding really cute little animals made out of felt. I need to look at pictures of felt animal because the house seems very quiet without the girls, and I required distraction.
Animal love for the weekend
