I had my first swim and shower today.  I went for my usual run this morning and landed in a huge pool of stagnant water. We think it might have been the creek.  I was soaking wet and covered in a green slimy mess from the tips of ears to the tip of my tail.  I didn't want to follow Mummy home because I wanted to clean myself up, but Mummy didn't want me to swallow too much of the green stuff in case I got sick.  So she picked me up and carried me for about 500 metres back home and straight into the shower.  I was shaking and shivering.  I had a nice warm shower and Mummy cleaned me up and herself and I was wrapped into a towel and then a blanket and put into bed to get warm and dry.  I am still a little stinky though.

Yesterday I was inside and and I got spooked.  My safe spot in the house is in front of the oven door because I can see myself in the reflection of the door.  I raced so fast to the door and couldn't stop in time and crashed with my nose into the door.  I got a blood nose and later when I sneezed I got blood all over Mummy.  

I am glad I live here, I am not sure how a kangaroo Mummy could take of me and all my accidents.
