platypus joy! I held a baby platypus today. I watched her sleep and when she woke up, her minder gently passed her to me.

she was ever so soft and still very sleepy. she made the smallest of whinges and then kind of curled over my hand. she wiggled a little and smelt like the river.

this is one of the small but overwhelming joys of working in a radio station. look at her!

I've had a good week, I spent yesterday in batlow, which is essentially apple town and I have lots of funny photos to share. our fridge is also now stocked with fresh fruit and veggies from road side stalls.

I'm making pizza tonight and tony is going to try making croissants this weekend. and then we welcome a friend to stay on sunday night.

have a wonderful weekend.

    That must've been so surreal to hold a baby platypus...
