Hooray! Today I was taking my dog Frances for a walk to this lovely little beach near our place and I actually found a four-leaved clover!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I came home and pressed it right away – now I have two! Today Sydney is sunny and warm. We always have a heatwave in mid-August (it’s supposed to be WINTER) so everyone has their doonas cleaned and put away, then come September they all freeze. This happens every year and we’re the only family I know who have twigged to this phenomenon.
(I will post a pic of the four-leaved clover as soon as possible.)

WOW, and I have NEVER found one yet. But then I don't live in Sydney either. Love to see your pic of it. I like your dog Pip, he's great. We are having a heatwave too here, it's 29C up in FNQ and although the night was 11C, hubby's gone into the pool, silly sod! It must be freezing...

Marguerite, he'll not do it again in a hurry !
With 11C overnight it won't be pleasant :(

Think it's Australian for a duvet or quilt..

Thanks, Fluff - i was wondering as well.

It's a long time since I found a four-leaved clover. Mind you, I haven't been looking for one, so maybe that's why???

No me neither...imagine how many we've overlooked?!! All that good luck that's passed us by!!

Glad you asked Hywel, as i wonted to know aswell.

Fluff is right - a doona is a quilt.

Marguerite - you're the first Aussie I've met on this site so far and I've been here for about two weeks - It's obviously a Pommy site.

Welcome to GoY Pip c, you're right this is a UK site but there are members in lots of other countries too. Another Aussie is Bernieh and I'm sure there are others too.

Hi Pip, welcome to GoY. I'm in Canada. I haven't seen a four leaf clover in years but, like Spritz says, I haven't been looking for one either.

I can see GoY is a very widespread network of friends!
