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.
