Oh Goody! I have a Mobile Groomer coming today to tidy up the mutt... who was locked out of the house all of yesterday due to him having the shits. Poor dog.

Also have to go into town to pay for some Trademe purchases, some stamps.. for card making. Kinda like the idea of making my own cards, gift tags etc!.....

ABOVE: the stamps I won at auction. I just love the fish kiss one!
Too cute.
Right, better bugger off for now and get the kids off to school!

All done... and I am thrilled to bits with how she has groomed him!
One exhausted little dog... ready to have a HUGE sleep to get over the trauma of being bathed/clipped! I'm off now to pay some bills... oh yaaaa.
End of Day: I'm friggin roasting! Just put a huge Bacon and Egg Pie in the oven. It's HOT today. And cos I'm bloody FAT again I am feeling it. Grrrrrr... pull finger... pull finger.... pullllllll me BLOODY FINGER... and lose some weight even! nite nite.


  1. You will have to show us a sampling of the cards you make....I love it when I receive home made cards, it just seems as though more thought has gone into it.

  2. thank you very much for letting me read your blog. i love it and now have some catching up to do. have a good week.

  3. Chris - thanks so much for inviting me. I love it. Just got back from NZ for holiday so catching up.

  6. Little Teddy is so cute. He looks like he is so tiny he would fit into a teacup...you may have to take a pic of him by that Coke bottle like you did you bags. haha

  7. Awww he looks cute.

  8. Hello there just thought I would call in at an internet cafe in Akaroa and say HI.......will have lots to cahtch up on when I get home :) hope all is well with you...

  9. Hi Chris
    Thanx for the invite. I'll try and comment more now instead of lurking so much. I'm just computer illiterate. My 10 year old knows more about them than I do.
    Im sure anything electronic will be great for xmas. Mines getting a DSi. I don't even know how to turn them on!!
    Hope teddy is feeling better today. He looks good after being groomed.

  10. Love that fish stamp! Love bacon and egg pie too... i think there's enough stress at this time of the year without stressing about dieting, so i'm starting again after Xmas!

  11. Thankyou so much for inviting me to your blog i always have a read over breakfast in the mornings otherwise i would of really missed you

  12. Ahhh phew!! Was so glad when I found I could still log on to your blog, Chris!! Thanks :-). Teddy looks gorgeous. Just like the quilts, seeing all your stamps makes me feel like looking at the back of the cupboard under the stairs to find mine . . . Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yep, it was a marathon post . . . probably too boring for most people to read, so thanks for hanging in there with me. I appreciate it!

  13. Yea, I'm back. Thanks for letting me continue to read and comment Chris.

    I love your stamps, and that fish one is super cute!

    Teddy looks nice, even if he's not happy. He'll get over it. ;)

  14. If a mobile truck came, my dog Rufus would bite them all. How convenient is that though!
