It is no secret that Le Cadeau has harboured some misgivings about this personal dresser’s taste in rugs – however, he is counting his lucky stars that he didn’t hire the services of Calamity Jane’s stylist. Although Calamity is not averse to the African Plains Seringeti look that seems to be sweeping Joyfallee, even she is questioning whether her latest outfit is just a tad overstated.

Le Cadeau celebrated his 31st birthday today by engaging in a spot of cradle snatching. While  there is quite a gulf in their ages, he is hopeful that his relationship with Calamity Jane may well blossom, as they have a lot of interests in common – with eating carrots being a major shared passion.  In the throes of first love, he even finds her affinity for 80’s style fluro leg warmers attractive. Although they are yet to embark on a first date, he thinks if he plays his cards right, the future could be filled with a golden angel at his side, and a bevy of gold and white pinto babies.

Le Cadeau is unsure about the modus operandi of his personal dresser which appears to be “Too much pinto is never enough”. He is inclined to think that the resulting outfit is a bridge too far.

Chocolate Bunny is gearing up in the home office to complete the census. He is, however, having a bit of trouble finding the entry to fill out for “House Rabbit 1”.

Chocolate Bunny slips gently into a postprandial food coma -  to dream (naturally) of eating to excess….oh and also to dream of hosting an iphone teleconference where he can chat happily with 816 of his Besties.

Love is in the air…or not

17 July 2016

Freya the frog ventured to Joyfallee one night recently in search of love. She had heard tell that there was a rather handsome brown hopper in residence and, having had no success in the romance stakes on Tinder, was hoping to catch his eye. Her disappointment at discovering the resident jumper came complete with a full coat of hair and no predilection for swimming was palpable. She is thinking of returning to the online dating thing, but has made a mental note to specify that long ears in a potential partner are a deal breaker.

Dance like no one is watching

9 July 2016

Influenced in the cultural sphere by the recent operatic excursion of a Joyfallee resident, the Joyfallee plovers made a quick (though somewhat tiring) flight to Melbourne to see a performance of Swan Lake. They were suitably impressed, although came away thinking that a performance of Plover Lake may have been even more compelling. Inspired by the spectacle they have taken up ballet with a passion and are to be seen at all hours practising their dance positions, the arabesque being a particular favourite. There is, however, a darker motivation behind their enthusiasm, which is their hope that they can use their new found skills in an entirely different genre for the delivery of insults – via interpretive dance (of course accompanied by loud plovery percussion).
