Yesterday afternoon the weather was glorious... so it was a good time to introduce the pups to the great outdoors:

ABOVE:  Wow!  What is this stuff??  Green carpet?  Smells funny!

ABOVE:  Dill.... loving the freedom of the yard... so much bigger than the puppy pen.

 ABOVE:  Daisy's taste 'interesting'...

ABOVE:  While the great outdoors might be rather exciting... we still want to stick close to our humans.... 

ABOVE:  this human will do...

ABOVE: or that one!  Or our Mum... might even be able to grab a sneaky feed while she's distracted...

Family ills update: Everyone is feeling much better!
Baby Keera is drinking again thank god!  I am still not prepared to send the kids back to school, I would never forgive myself if they infected their classmates, and in turn the whole school came down with this bug!
So I'm thinking they will stay home until next Monday... better safe than sorry.

Damn shame Kelly hadn't thought like that before she came up on Sunday and gave us their  bug!  I think she will be more careful next time she wants to visit us. 

Now that I am feeling a lot better I might just try and do some housework today, it's been kinda left the past few days.  Naturally.
And I might even try doing some sewing... my next project is calling my name!

SHIT.... no not that sort!  ... I just remembered that I'm supposed to see the Depression Dr this morning... hmmmm...... wonder if I dare risk it?  As the kids are home... I would have to take them... so might have to postpone the appointment.  


A dear friend felt the need to share this picture with me today:

ABOVE: Here's hoping my 'problem' from yesterday does not occur again today!

Seems everyone is feeling SO MUCH BETTER!  Looks like this weekend coming is going to be a good one.  I am feeling stir crazy, stuck at home for so long!  

At least our almost DIL Bex did NOT get the bug... such a blessing.
Talking of Bex, she has been shopping:

ABOVE:  more clothes for Baby Foe...  I have told her to slow down on the purchases or she's gunna end up with too many infant clothes that will only get worn once or twice!

We are certainly all feeling better... we all decided we felt like a burger for dinner ... so I just ordered them from our local.
Only I wanted something a bit different from the 'standard' burger choices!  I ordered a:
Ham/Cheese/Pineapple/Bacon and Egg Burger.  NO Salad!  The lady taking our order was a bit surprised and said she had never had an order like that before... lol!   I am going to photograph it before I have a go at eating it.... Watch this space...

ABOVE:  how's THAT for a burger!  It was bloody nice too I must say.

End of Day:  another rather good day... it's so good to be feeling well again... and have the housework up to date!
nite nite.

  11. Hi Chris - I have been reading your blog for a long time now and just love it. I think you are one of the most amazing people I have ever met (on line). You are an incredible wife, mother, grandmother and friend. It makes me cross sometimes to read about how some of your family treat you. You are a true inspiration to me and I am sure many others too. Happy belated birthday. Karen xo

    That is one nice looking burger, sounds good too!

  13. Do you all have baby showers over there? She should wait until after that and then buy whatever she needs.

    I bet the puppies had fun out on the grass!
