Beth as a cat

A few more photos over at Flickr - cute.
We had a better weekend than I had anticipated, actually. Our mate Kylie and her daughter Trinity were staying with us so Beth had a playmate. Saturday happened to be Trinity's third birthday, so we had a fun party that included face painting, as you can see.
The most startling moment was when M and a friend were sitting in the shade under a tree, each breastfeeding their children. Suddenly the friend gasped and we say that a crow had shat on her baby in mid-feed. The poor wee thing had lime on his cheek and even in his ear, though he seemed blissfully unconcerned by the incident.
On Sunday we went to a fair with Mark, Tanya and Ollie. More face painting ensued. Most pleasant.
Oh, and M has virtually completed her thesis. Yay! I get my wife back (and my computer).
And if all that is not heartwarming enough, go watch a brilliant doco about Christian fundies being routed by right-thinking people in, Dover, Pennsylvania.
