I've heard it said that lizards in the home are lucky.
In particular, geckos.
I had plenty of geckos at my last home, mostly outside, but occasionally one would find its way inside.
There were plenty of skinks too.
Here in this new home, I haven't seen a single gecko or a skink either.
But I heard odd noises from the front porch late last Saturday afternoon and went out to see what the heck was going on out there.
I saw a blue tongue lizard trying to hide under the "gecko house".
Probably just after a bit of shade I suppose.
Naturally I raced for the camera and hoped he'd still be there when I got back with it.
It was a hot day here in Adelaide, so after taking this photo, I put a small dish of water within reach for him, then left him alone.
He's disappeared now, living somewhere in the gardens, and he wasn't in my home, just on the front porch, but I still think I'm lucky just for having seen him at all.
you've all wanted to see it, so here it is, in all its long, loose fitting, ummm….. dowdiness? the disappointing part was I felt cold most of the time so I kept on my long, wrap-style cardigan and the dress hardly got seen.
long and loose - shapeless, just like me

the gold design almost echoes... the band on my "good" watch, which I bought just for the wedding, which has a little bling around the face.
