Tuesday now and that means extreme creatures day, this week it is the Stout Infantfish, this is the smallest Australian fish and the second smallest fish in the world.
It grows to a maximum of only 8 millimetres in length which is pretty small. If you had a kilo of them you would have one million of them. . The stout infantfish is also the lightest vertebrate, weighing just one milligram
It is transparent without pigmentation, except for its eyes, and lacks teeth, scales and certain characteristics typical of other fishes. Scientists note that the stout infantfish's unusual appearance corresponds with its extremely short lifespan, which is believed to be approximately two months.

My left arm is so bad I can barely type.

Tim decided on a whim to sell the box trailer, he advertised it and it sold straight away within 2hrs. In time he may get another trailer.
Still no vacuum cleaner and the floor is a mess.
This new day saw me awake and up by 4.20am, I cleaned the kitchen before Tash got here so I wouldn't have to hear her complain.
Had Xray and scan done and was told I have a small fracture, what the hell.
Kelli brought over some caramel slice and brownies for me made by her with ingredients supplied by Sue. They are yummy.
Another day has arrived with me waking at 4.48am, Tash arrived while I was brushing my teeth.
Another day sweating a bloody lot but it is summer, so to be expected.
Daemon came over with his mum's vacuum and ran it over the lounge and kitchen floor.
Our new vacuum cleaner arrived it is on charge now will try it out in a day or so.
Tim also ordered a small hand held vacuum for cleaning the car for us to give Tasha for her birthday next month, this also arrived to do.

Slept well but woke during the night with my left arm stuck behind my head and had to wake Tim to move it.
When I got up I had bugga all movement in my right arm and when I did use it there was a great deal of pain. My left arm is only a tad better.
Been a hardish day.
Had a not so good night, was restless and unsettled ended up getting up having a glass of milk and part of a sleeping tablet, that had once been Mum's, which did the trick. I slept in till 5.40am.
Had to have a nap at 11.30 till 12.30.
Tim complaining there is no food in the house, as in nothing he felt like. So he went shopping for bread and salad stuff.
Had a better night, Tasha this morning was rushing around, I don't know why but her mood had me forget to ask her to rub cream into my arms.
It is another hard day shaking a bloody lot and my arms are very sore. So sore I am in tears.
Slept in till 5.36 which was a surprise and I did sleep well. Tasha was already here waiting for me to wake up.
Pain still bad but I did manage to take down Chrissy decorations and pack them away.
Tim took car into Klosters about the reversing buzzer and wipers, it is going to cost over $2000 to fix the wipers. This car is costing us a bloody lot of money.

My left arm is also very sore again with limited movement.
Unable to do grocery shop the Coles page will not load which is very frustrating.
