This is how I feel sometimes!! (or is it all the time?) I thought it was so appropriate!
 
Yes, life is always on the go here and not much time to catch your breath.  But we were able to do something as a family this weekend. We visited the Cutta Cutta Caves, just out of Katherine.  This is a tropical cave so it gets more hot and humid as you venture into the cave. We had a guided tour (which is the only way you can do it) and it was very interesting. The girls and I had been back in June, so this time, at 40 degrees outside, it was a whole lot warmer inside. We were all dripping in sweat by the time we emerged.
 
We were able to see some rock wallabies that live in the entrance of the cave, and 2 banded tree snakes in little holes in the rocks, inside the cave. When you get as far as you're allowed to go in the cave, they turn the lights out and boy is it dark!! 
 
Just another display of God's wonderful and creative creation. 
 
The entrance to the cave

 
Some amazing formations
 
 
 
 
Our guide told us there had been a large olive python in the sink in the girls toilets, so of course the girls and I had to go check it out. Instead, we found this Golden Tree snake. He posed nicely for me to take his/her photo! (Although I wasn't sure how close to get as he/she was really checking me out)
 
 
We checked out the boys loo too, but no luck!
 
 
These beautiful birds have been hanging around and when I have time,
 I try and get some shots.
 
 
In other news, we have been having infrequent showers every couple of days so we had to mow the grass yesterday (we as in "Maddy") and it was thick and green in places. The place is really greening up here in the wet.  Things are slowing down but somehow, I'm not!
 
Dave is flat out with work and has started working on a project involving lots of welding in his spare time (one day so far). Cam will be doing a lot of the welding
next week before he leaves.
 
We had new split systems put in the girls rooms on Saturday, so that is a real
 blessing.  Now we are all very cool at night.
 
I have organized a bikky decorating morning for the kids in December,
 so that promises to be messy and a lot of fun.
 
Oh, and in BIGGER news, I am in search of a piano!! Yes, a real one! Not just my keyboard, that has many frustrating issues! I am so excited I can hardly sit still. I don't expect
you'll get much except music out of me when I finally get one!
 Will keep you posted (no pun intended).
 
 
And on that 'note', I'll finish.
